Te Reo Term 4 2016

Blog Post Title : Te Reo, Term 4 2016.

This term we have been learning all about the Marae. We have learned that…….

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.
  • The Marae is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between maraes and iwi.

We have focussed on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.
Definition -
give the meaning of these concepts in your own words.
its like there procedure
welcoming ceremony
Tangata whenua
local people 
welcoming people that are no local
A place to stand, where you stand strong
relationship family
See this video for an explanation of the roles and responsibilities of people on a marae.

Something I would like to learn more about the marae is to go into a really marea for a school trip
