Kia ora koutou!
Kia ora koutou! There are many things that define New Zealanders and connect us to our home, and te Reo Māori is one of them. To mark this very special week, Te Wiki o te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week), I’d like to share my pepeha.
My pepeha acknowledges the guiding principle of my life: What is the most important thing in the world? It is people! It also acknowledges my ancestors from India; my mountain-Himalaya; my river-Ganga; my mode of transport to arrive in Aotearoa- Singapore airlines; my tribe-Indians and Christchurch is home to me, my husband and our children. My name is Sunita Gautam🙏❤🙏
