For 2021, our call to action was to invite Te Reo Māori expert Kiri Key from NoA (Nurturing one Another) to work with our Walk Together crew on sharing the why, how and what of Pēpehā.

For 2021, our call to action was to invite Te Reo Māori expert Kiri Key from NoA (Nurturing one Another) to work with our Walk Together crew on sharing the why, how and what of Pēpehā. We were privileged to learn more about each other's ancestral pathways and connections from; Oxford England, Kahungunu-ki Wairoa, Luzon-Philippines, and Moaata-Samoa. We enjoyed spending time acknowledging Te Wiki o te Reo Māori by acknowledging the importance and beauty of Pepeha and the process of sharing where you are from. Ngā mihi ki a koe e te rangatira, kai karakia, kaioko mō re rā, taku tino hoa, ko Kiri Key, me ngā mihi aroha ki te tīma Walk Together NZ for wanting to learn how to do Pepeha, Māori Styles. By sharing our culture, we learn so much more about other cultures. We find common ground and from there, anything is possible. Mauri Ora. Arama
