The Taumata Kōrero | Te Ataakura Pewhairangi | Māori and Kura Kaupapa Māori: The Kura Kids
In Māori language circles, Te Ataakura Pewhairangi (Ngāti Porou) is quickly becoming a household name. She’s but one of the growing population of new-age, well-equipped, young, vibrant Māori taking the world on after graduating from the kura kaupapa Māori system. At 17 she was presenting kids TV shows in te reo and she is now a lecturer at Massey University. It begs the question though, what does the future hold for total immersion Māori education? How sustainable is the model? This is Te Ataakura’s story. This is The Taumata Kōrero. Welcome to The Taumata Kōrero – the quintessential space to disseminate a little bit of esoteric knowledge – with a twist. Exclusively dedicated to conversation that will inform, reform, question, challenge, debate, investigate, analyse, deconstruct and then reconstruct how we see ourselves as Māori – this is the wānanga at it’s finest. Join University of Auckland Māori language lecturer and former award-winning Māori journalist, Raniera Harrison (Te Aupōuri, Ngāti Porou) as he critically analyses some of the most pertinent topics in the Māori world today. Long Live The Wānanga.
