Betsy shared a moment

Betsy Tipping | November 2021

As a Pākehā, for years I have wanted to learn Te Reo so that I could respectfully communicate and understand better (instead of just broken phrases and waiata).

As a Pākehā, for years I have wanted to learn Te Reo so that I could respectfully communicate and understand better (instead of just broken phrases and waiata). This year I have committed to improving and have added a Te Reo Māori major to my Bachelor of Arts... so now I have no excuses! Feeling connected to our country and honouring our treaty partners is so important to me. I love the language, the culture and the connectedness and cannot wait to begin this journey.
