We are graced by Julian Wilcox this week for "Iwi o te Wiki", as we take a second look at the intricate, complex architecture of the sacred house of Ngāpuhi. Listen out for our kīwaha which may have you rolling your eyes, or even answering back at some one.
He tapu te parapara? He aha i tapu ai? Me pēhea e porowhiu atu? Is waste/trash sacred? If so, why? How is it to be disposed of?
In the first week of Mahuru Māori, the Taringa trio ponders these questions in consideration of such practices as tā moko, tangihanga and humuhumu (amputation) with the remnants and their disposal in mind.
What is a hapa? What is a whati? What are they in the context of te reo Māori and tikanga Māori? What are the underpinning principles that make them Māori concepts? Why can I say "KAITOA!" when I'm relieved or satisfied with something?
As we face new and uncharted waters, so too does te reo Māori. What kupu do we use for certain terms like hand sanitiser? Pandemic? Social distancing? Ka āta wānangahia te tokotoru o Taringa atu i tō rātou ake 'kāhui rāhui' mō tēnei kaupapa.
In this "Patapātai" episode, our hosts answer questions about education systems, pepeha structure, Christianity, and Tangihanga.
Paraone, Snow and Erica discuss Tikanga mō te kai in various contexts.
Karanga te hau muri, karanga te hau runga, karanga te hau uru, karanga te hau whiti karanga ngā taonga o tua whakarere. The Ngā Taonga series continues as the Taringa trio look at some excerpts of karanga. We also contest the thought of how and when the karanga was to be used. Whakarongo mai.
Hari huri tau ki a Taringa! Special guests Che Wilson and Rangi Matamua join us in the film studio for our 4th birthday. We answer some audience pātai, and speak in depth about the Tikanga of Matariki and Puanga.
Ko hea tēnei wāhi? In this Kupu,Kupu,Kupu episode we discuss place names and the language associated with them.
