Kia Ora .
Kia Ora . I feel a strong connection with Te Ao Maori including Te Reo , kapahaka, etc . I am a full blooded pakeha but grew up in Wairoa , HB. My first kaiako was Mrs Hana Mita from Nuhaka - she was very special to me. I just feel a strong connection due to my amazing upbringing. I was the only pakeha in my Maori class at wairoa college and also studied Maori and Canterbury ( my major was engineering) . I have never quite grasped Te Reo .. I feel it is time. My dream is to speak fluent Te Reo with my mokopuna ( who are not born yet).
