We are a proud Māori family, wanting to share our precious taonga, our native dialect with our tamariki.

We are a proud Māori family, wanting to share our precious taonga, our native dialect with our tamariki. Neither myself nor my husband grew up immersed in our Māori culture, both having runaway fathers, who in their defense are just part of the long legacy of stolen souls and oppressed identities. Both losing their way in life, of course dealing with the trauma of colonization. We are on a journey to reclaim our Reo, what was stolen from our fathers, and our fathers fathers but not us.
