This week's commemoration of the 1864 Battle of Pukehinahina-Gate Pa drew more than 10,000 people to the battle site in the middle of Tauranga, including 500 warriors who performed a special haka peruperu written by Awanui Black and Reweti Te Mete. In Kia Korero Mai this Saturday, Awanui talks to Eru Morgan about Te Pakanga O Pukehinahina, what the land wars mean to Tauranga Moana 150 years on, and what the future holds for the region's iwi.


Sunday 04 May 2014

The Maori language commission Te Taura Whiri i te reo Maori is concerned some of the reo used for radio and television news bulletins is too hard or too flowery for many in the audience. It wants broadcasters to keep it simple. In Kia Korero Mai this Sunday, Radio Waatea and Te Karere presenter Scotty Morrison gives his views on how te reo is developing, and shares some of the strategies he and his wife Stacey use at home to keep their children using the language.

Korero Mai Ki Ahau a half hour features programme every Saturday and Sunday from noon, which takes an in – depth look at issues affecting te ao Maori. Totally in te reo Maori brought to you by Waatea News in association with Te Mangai Paho.


Ma Waatea ma te reo hei whakamarama


Both shows will be available as podcast on our website: waateanews.com
