Vanessa shared a moment

Kia ora tātou,.

Kia ora tātou,

This Matariki was a really special one. I joined a group of other hoa who were interested in hearing a short kōrero given by a London-based kaiako who is reaching out to the community there.

We talked about symbolism and mana in Matariki and how the kōrero continues to this day. I felt it was really meaningful this year as we reached out to the origins of Matariki and hope it’ll inspire me this year to kōrero more and not just practice Te Reo passively.

By next Matariki, I hope to be speaking more with other speakers of Te Reo and sharing our own kōrero.

Ngā mihi mahana ,

Vanessa
