Our first ever live episode! We set up at our Hamilton Mangakōtukutuku campus with a live audience and discuss how Māori language is changing with the times.
In this two-part Matariki special, we reflect on the recent revitalisation of tikanga Matariki, and look at how the umu kohukohu whetū used to be conducted in a traditional way, then at Paraone's house, we give examples of how anyone can do their own hautapu ceremony using what you have at home.

This episode was filmed and released on Māori TV in 2 episodical parts - to watch the episodes go here:
Part 1 - Matariki Revitalisation
Part 2 - Matariki Hautapu at home
This tribute kōrero is not just about our Soldiers that went to war, but also about those at home who held down the Whānau and Iwi roots and adjusted their Tikanga while watching their world change around them.
Our Kīwaha o te wiki is "kei raro e putu ana" (I'm not doing too well, I've hit rock bottom)
Here are the lyrics for our Waiata o te wiki:
Ngā Whare Pa
Powhiritia a nga morehu
Te iwi, tangihia
Te mamae e, me te pouri nui
Tenei ra kua mahea
Hoki mai ra!
Hoki mai ra ki te kaianga
E tatari atu nei ki a koutou
Nga tau roa i ngaro atu ai. E aroha
e ngau kino nei i ahau
Ngā whare pa tenei huakina
Te iwi kia koa
Kua hoki mai nga tamariki toa
Ki te ao ora
Welcome home the survivors.
All of you who have been mourning
The inward grief, and great mourning
today is cleared away.
Welcome back to the village
that has been waiting for you.
Long years you have been gone. Sorrow
has gnawed within me.
Open wide the doors of our homes
The brave boys have returned
to the world of (normal) life.
The hosts challenge each other on their historical knowledge around the Treaty of Waitangi. Along the way, they talk about some of the facts and offer some thoughts surrounding this important kaupapa.
