In this week's "Iwi O Te Wiki" episode, Dr Wayne Ngata shares kōrero about Te Aitanga a Hauiti
In honour of our national day of commemoration of the NZ Land Wars, this installment of Once Upon a Taima is a brief version of the battle of Ō-Rākau in 1864. This version is based on the account of Hitiri Te Paerata, a Chief of Ngāti Raukawa & Ngāti te Kohera, who fought in the battle himself - losing many of his whānau, including his Father and Brother.

Taringa - Ep 253 - Kupu, Kupu, Kupu with MC Grammar - Complex Manner Particles (Pūtohu) and Passives
MC Grammar returns to wānanga with us about Pūtohu (complex manner particles) but up another level this time; how to modify them to use in passive structures.
Ka hono mai anō tō tātou ake kaiako a MC Grammar ki te whakataka i ētahi anō kura o ngā kupu pūmuri. Hei tēnei wiki ka matapakihia ngā kupu 'anō' me 'rānei' me ana āheinga katoa. Our very own tutor MC Grammar joins us again to drop some more gems on postposed particles. This week we discuss the words "anō" and 'rānei' and a few of their functions.
Mokomōkai: He aha te mokomōkai he aha i panoni ai tēnei ingoa mō te upoko kua kōhuatia ki te ingoa o Toi Moko? What is mokomōkai? Why was this name for a preserved head changed to Toi Moko? Tamahou Temara joins the Taringa crew to explain this whakaaro and to elaborate on his commitment to the repatriation of the remains of our tūpuna from the far reaches of the globe.
We have another delve back into the archives to bring you some of the items performed at what is now called Matatini, in 1981.
