This week's episode looks at the 'Urban Māori'; what the term means to our guest and hosts, and challenging perceptions. There is also discussion around the use of Te Reo Māori as a vehicle for reconnection, ie: helping others to reconnect via their learning journey.
Wāta Cribb phones in to talk with us about the Te Arawa tribe - Ngāti Pikiao, from the western bay of plenty. Talking in depth about the lakes, the ancestors Tamatekapua and Rangitihi with his eight children and their descendants - who became known as Ngā Pūmanawa e Waru (the eight beating hearts).
E ao te kōrero mō tēnei iwi o te wiki. A progeny of Te Rarawa whakapapa and a prodigy of Te Rarawa wānanga. Raniera Mcgrath presents a glimpse into the history of Te Rarawa and its people. Kua whakawerahia hoki te kaupapa o Mahuru Māori nō reira ka kōrero tō hoa i roto i tōna reo ūkaipō. E tai mā, e hika mā e mara mā - whakarongo mai.
Our kaikōrero Anameka Paenga joins us from Ōpōtiki and talks with us about the eastern bay of plenty iwi named after a Tupuna Wāhine - Muriwai.
