Reo Māori Mai offers pathways into Māori language and culture that build community. Whether your aim is to learn some waiata and key phrases for the marae or whether you want total immersion, we meet you where you’re at.
Reo Māori Mai’s goal is to promote and revitalize the Māori language in a fun, accessible way. For too long te reo has been put into the too hard kete – we make learning it a community-strengthening activity.
Our goal is to help you become part of the growing movement to learn te reo Māori so you can gain a new and deeper appreciation of the culture of Aotearoa and connect more fully to the riches of tikanga Māori
Speaking a new language takes courage – you need to feel relaxed and not worried that you might get it wrong. Ariana is patient, funny and has the knack of putting people at ease. Steeped in tikanga, she brings Māori culture and language alive.
