Anei tō mātou Ētita reo Māori.

Kia ora mai tātou, nō Ngāti Maniapoto ahau heoi anō rā kei Papaioea tōku whānau e noho ana i tēnei wā. E 5000 aku kōmeke, manomano aku pukapuka, hokorima aku tauira, tokotoru aku tamariki, kotahi taku makau, ē, ā, kotahi taku ngeru.  Ahakoa e rua tekau tau au e tuhi ana, e ako tonu ana ahau ki te tuhituhi, ki te peita hoki. Kia kaha tāua tahi ki te ako tonu.

Tīkina mai ngā kupu o te ataata a Darryn ki konei.


Introducing our te reo Māori Editor.

Hi everyone, I hail from Ngāti Maniapoto but currently live with my whānau in Palmerston North. I have 5000 comics, 1000s of books, 100 students, 3 kids, one spouse, oh, and one cat. Although I’ve been writing for 20 years, I’m still learning to write and paint. Let’s both be brave and keep learning.

Ngā mihi matakuikui ki a Ruawharo Taumoepeau mōna i toa i tā mātou Whakataetae Tuhinga mō Matariki!

Kia mōhio mai, ehara i te mea he māmā te whiriwhiri ko wai rā te whakaihuwaka. I runga i te mea neke atu i te 60 ngā tuhinga i tukuna mai, i ētitahia, i imērahia atu me te ātaahua o ia tuhinga!

He kōrero whakamārama kei ia tuhinga mō tēnei mea te Matarikitanga ki ngā kaituhi taiohi nei mō rātou me Aotearoa. Whakamīharotia!

Ko tā Ruawharo, he tuhi karakia mō te atapō e whakanui ai i a Matariki. Ki te pānui ā-waha āna kupu, pēnei i a au nei kia rima ngā wā, tēnā ka rongo i te rere tino Māori o āna kīanga me te tohutoro ki ngā atua, ki ngā tūpuna, ki te rewatanga o Matariki. Tuhi ana, tau ana!

Nei anō a Toitoi te mihi ake nei ki a koutou e ngā kaituhi, he tuatahitanga mō ētehi ki te tuhi i te reo Māori. Ahakoa rā, he rawe te pānui atu. Ka nui rā te mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa!

Nāku me ngā mihi o Matariki manako nui,

Nā Dr Darryn Joseph
