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.
