Te Reo, Term 4 2016

Te Reo

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 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.
The procedures of a Marae
A welcoming ceremony to the Manuhiri
Tangata whenua
Are the local people 
Visitors to a Marae
A home base on a Marae. It also includes rights and obligations
A relationship/belonging
Care and respect for other people 

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 you can go visit one.
