MC Grammar is back again with another demonstration and workshop of his elite verbiage abilities. We look at some kupu that specify locations beyond, over yonder, not too far from, no too far after and not too many to confuse you.
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.
In this "Patapātai" episode, our hosts answer questions around Matariki hautapu, learning te reo, and appropriate use of tauparapara.
We delve back into the metaphorical language by going over Kupu Whakarite in the theme of heavenly bodies - using simile to refere to anything that is in the sky - stars, moon, planets, the sun etc. Enjoy!
Who you gonna call? Not the Ghostbusters - but if you listen to this kōrero you can gain some understanding. Using our own experiences and knowledge, we go into depth with acknowledging spiritual presences, and how to live and communicate with wairua that may be in some of the spaces we also inhabit.
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.
