Korero Mai - Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th June 2014


Saturday 28 June 2014: Tunui McLean

It's been a tough few weeks in Mangere, with a 10-year-old boy fighting for his life after being stabbed with scissors in a fight, a knife used in a fight at another school. There's also been community rage and frustration that they have been unable to stop the opening of a liquor outlet across the road from the Southern Cross Campus. In KKM this Saturday, community worker Tunui McLean talks to Eru Morgan about the scramble to get liquor licenses before a change of law, and about the effect alcohol and unemployment are having on the community.


Sunday 29 June 2014: Parekura Kupenga

Ngati Porou kaumatua Parekura Kupenga talks about Matariki, a time to reflect those who have gone as well as a time to make a new beginning. Now it has become a time for Maori-themed concerts and festivals, but Parekura remembers that growing up Matariki was important to his whanau as a time for harvesting and planting kai.


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

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
