for Māori disenfranchised from te reo
Tikanga, an introduction to Te Ao Māori, is a new book by linguist and educator, Keri Opai, which has been released to help beginners understand the Māori world.
Author Keri Opai hopes that this book reaches Māori who have been "disenfranchised from their language and culture.”
‘I'm hoping that many people look at that and go,` Wow, it's an interesting, fascinating world, I want to be part of that.”
"Kia oti a runga, kia oti a raro, ka puta ai, ki waho."
'Only when you know yourself, your community, and your guiding principles and practices, can you truly be your best self.'
