For Te Reo o te Wiki Māori 2023 I learned a waiata, Nau Mai Rā by Dave Dobbyn. This waiata is especially precious to me because it was the song I sung at my grandpa's funeral in 2011, although in English. So, it was special to learn this in Te Reo Māori. Kia kaha Te Reo Māori! !

I'm taking part because it's a beautiful language and it's part of who we are, as a country. Let's celebrate that! "Ehara toa i te toa takitahi, engari, he toa takitini" – My success (or my strength) is not that of a single person but instead the strength of many.

I am doing the Te Reo course and so my commitment is ako (learn) which I need to keep doing so I can engage in more korero (speak) with confidence

For my Māori Language moment, I chose to introduce myself in my 12PM meeting with a pepeha (who I am, where I am from, and what's important to me), and shared a whakatauki (a Māori proverb).

Te Taurapa Tūhono | New Zealand Trade and Enterprise came together virtually to sing our Ko Mātou Ēnei waiata! It was a great opportunity to korikori tinana and celebrate our beautiful indigenous language. We also played a quiz game Tika/Teka using the Zoom reaction emojis and watched the powerful video of SIx60's Kia Mau Ki To Ūkaipō performance at Western Springs featuring Ngā Tūmanako kapa haka. We had over 60 participants on the call at one stage, some from as far away as New York and London. Kia kaha te reo!

I did a series of illustrations inspired by my favorite whakatauki that weave together the wisdom of Maori proverbs and the Russian folk sayings I grew up with.
