Wāhine Māori.. a second language learner.. Like anything in life.. it’s not until you no longer have something do you value or cherish it.

Tēnā koutou katoa.. wāhine Māori.. a second language learner.. Like anything in life.. it’s not until you no longer have something do you value or cherish it.

In my case living in Brisbane raising ōku tamariki for 20 years.. the last 5years I felt such mamae, karanga to return home. 2017 I answered that cry.. who am I as wāhine Māori .. learn Te Reo.. tikanga.. whakapapa Te Wananga Aotearoa, Tauranga..

Most importantly instil into ōku tamariki, mokopuna this taonga tūturu.

Kei ō ringaringa te ao..
