Te Ao Māori...
One thing many of us have in common, having left our home land and many of our whanau to live here in Queensland, Australia, is the yearning we feel to keep ourselves, our tamariki (children) and mokopuna (grandchildren) connected to our roots, and our "māori ways".
Reo & Tīkanga
Here you will find details and/or links to online & offline resources, classes, wānanga, events and programs that may support your journey in learning/maintaining te reo me te tīkanga māori, (māori language & culture). Kia kaha, kia mau, kia ū ki te reo me te tīkanga māori! Mauri Ora!
Māori are instinctively a social people. We work, learn, play and fight (lol) best TOGETHER. We will be holding various events throughout the year to support our learning, sharing and feeling of being connected to our people, to our home.
