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 Marea 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 focused 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.
Tikanga means Culture or "the way we do things" so it would be like us explaining stuff to a reliever so they know what we do in the classroom.
Is a ceremony involving speeches, dancing and singing to welcome important people.
Tangata whenua
used to describe the Maori that were originally here first.
A visitor to Maori marae.
is a place where people feel connected and powerful.
it can mean that you are in the process of meeting new people.
is translated to "hospitality" and is used for inspiring people.
a love for something/someone.

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……... how important do the people they are welcoming have to be?
