Te Pararē presents the top stories of the week about or by tauira Māori across the motu.

Ko te reo te mauri o te mana māori.

Australia TV host Rowan Dean, panel slam mātauranga māori

The title is self-explanatory. A panel of Australians discussing a topic they do not understand or can comprehend. Precaution: Gets the blood boiling.

University Steps Up To Matatini Partnership

This year marking Te Matatini’s 50th year the University of Auckland set out to be involved in the world’s leading celebration for kapa haka (for the first time ever). As the university plans to introduce a new strategy which includes a strong focus on Te Ao Māori principle, the articles discuss the positives kapa haka has had on māori tertiary students and their education.

This Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori we celebrated the 50th year since The Māori Language petition was delivered to parliament. Led by rangatahi māori, we hear their kōrero on the trials and tribulations and effort that was put into achieving this movement, their experience and involvement to help get Te Reo Māori recognised at the level it is today across the motu.
