Are you up for the Mahuru Challenge?

Naumai hoki mai anō ki Mahuru Māori. 

In line with our maramataka Māori, this year Mahuru Māori starts on Tuesday 3 September 2024.

It doesn’t matter whether your reo skills stop at kia ora, or you can whaikōrero on the marae with the best of them, Mahuru Māori is something we can all do.

So jump on the waka e hoa mā, and let’s give Mahuru Māori our best shot.

How it works

It can be anything that makes you speak more Māori. An hour a day, half the day, all day every day, or as a beginner just start with greeting and farewells in Māori.

2. Get your mates involved

Get a team of friends, family or workmates involved and plan some virtual catch ups. You’ll have more fun, stay motivated and feel more comfortable in the reo zone.

3. Speak te reo Māori

Speak te reo Māori as much as you can during Mahuru. Every time you do, you’re revitalising te reo and breathing life back into our native tongue. Be brave, be bold and be patient.

We're taking the Mahuru Challenge. Will You?

Comes and goes this greeting to the enthusiasts, you the group who exhaust ones energy so that our esteemed language does not die, acknowledgements to you all. Welcome again to our intiative thus truly appeasing the Māori heart, at the same time the month of Mahuru continues to be Māori.

We’re all taking this year’s Mahuru Māori challenge. The aim is to learn and gain the confidence to speak te reo Māori in our everyday lives. Some of us are just beginning, others will immerse themselves all day long, everyday. Read more of our stories here.

Mahuru this year according to maramataka Māori begins on 03 September 2024

So it’s taken us a year 😅 but we finally have a series of 10 podcasts for u to listen to. It’s just a start - we have started with content & we are still working on the tech skills 😂  Check out Talktereo on Spotify. 

The content is all about our reo Māori learning journeys - Crisanna and I talk about our own but also we talk to other everyday people about their experiences learning te reo Māori.
 
Tune in while you go for a hīkoi or a drive in your Waka and hopefully u will find some relatable content with some reo tips to add to your kete & hopefully a few laughs.

Let’s normalise te reo Māori e hoa mā and add some reo sparkle to your day nē crisanna_whakaniko 🤩 

A huge mihi to hemi.kelly rebeccajkeil alice.perkins17 alglecp29  for your time & honest kōrero. Can’t wait to sit down with more people & hear their stories 🤗
