Ko “the Howie’s” toku ingoa.

We are from Hamilton. Michelle and Shawn are the grown ups, Beren and Willis are the tamariki.

We said a kaikoohau at dinner time last night. We had been outside looking at stars while we cooked the kai. We talked about the Great War between the atua after Papa and Rangi were pushed apart by Tane. We have learnt the story of the mata of ariki of Tawhirimatea from a great webinar by Rangi Matamua. The boys loved the part where Tawhirimatea ripped out his eyes and threw them into the sky.

The kaikoohau is a really cool way to bring some more reo and learning into meetings at work too. Michelle used it at a Playcentre meeting as well!

Thanks for all your awesome reo resources and helping us all learn more.
