Te Reo Māori - Intensive Wananga

Te Reo Māori - Intensive Wananga

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 11 May, 9:30am – 3:30pm


Wellington High School, 249 Taranaki St, Wellington



An opportunity for beginners, or those with a little te reo, to take part in an intensive language and cultural experience over two consecutive Saturdays. (Discounted fee of $85 for NZ citizens and residents - evidence of eligibility required).

During the two-day workshop we’ll use as much te reo as possible to immerse you in the language and introduce you to te ao Māori (the Māori world), its language, culture and traditions.

The wananga is aimed at those who are new to te reo or who have attended a basic course already but would like a more intensive language experience.

By the end of the two sessions, you will:
- Be introduced to the Māori spiritual and natural worlds and our important connection to them (mana whenua and manu atua)
- Be able to identify and connect with underlying Māori values and customs such as tikanga, manaakitanga, whanaungatanga and whakapapa
- Have participated in singing group waiata and understand its cultural function
- Be able to identify the sounds of Māori letters and pronounce important letter combinations correctly (whakahua)
- Be able to confidently greet people, introduce yourself and communicate basic personal information to others (mihimihi)
- Understand the basic sentence structures for formulaic expressions around the home

Presenter: Te Ataahia Hurihanganui
