More than 1000 people have given up their weekend to be in Ngaruawahia for the discussion of the future of the Kohanga Reo movement. In Kia Korero Mai this Saturday Eru Morgan talks to Tawhirimatea Williams, who has taught hundreds of teachers for kohanga and kura. They discuss the changes that need to be looked at, and look back at the origins of kohanga, when it seemed te reo me ona tikanga was all that mattered and communities would create kohanga even if they had no money.
