Kotahi Mano Kāika (KMK)
Kura Reo Kāi Tahu 2013

When: 13-18 January
Where: Arowhenua Marae.

Are you and/or your whānau looking for an opportunity to further develop your Māori language? Are you looking for a Māori language event that focuses on Kāi Tahu history, tikaka, dialect, whakataukī, kīwaha?

If so, don’t forget to register for Kura Reo Kāi Tahu 2013. This Kotahi Mano Kāika event is aimed at Kāi Tahu iwi members/whānau at an intermediate to advanced level of te reo Māori. If this sounds like you and/or your whānau come along to Kura Reo Kāi Tahu 2013.

With the numbers increasing every year we encourage you all to register as soon as possible. Due to the limited space available, Kāi Tahu registered iwi members will be selected first. Last year 120 attended, including more than 50 te reo- speaking tamariki!

So what does a usual day at Kura Reo involve?
Early morning exercise/zumba in te reo Māori for those who are interested, followed by breakfast and karakia
Reo classes for parents and a tamariki programme that will take place while the adults are learning (all tamariki must be able to speak te reo and be able to handle a total immersion setting)
A chance to learn Kāi Tahu waiata/haka (old and new)
Whānau activities some time will be put aside each afternoon to do whānau activities
Night time activities to entertain the night owls.

Of course we can’t give everything away so if you would like to find out more you will have to attend. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to strengthen your Kāi Tahutaka and meet like-minded whānau.

If this sounds like something you may be interested in, then come and join us. We are privileged to have pou reo available to support us such as Tahu Pōtiki, Hana O’Regan, Charisma Rangipunga and Lynne Te Aika and deeply appreciate the support of our esteemed kāhui kaumātua throughout this event.
