Tiki Towns: teaching practical Maori for Te Wiki o te reo Māori

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:23 pm on 7 September 2018

Next week kicks off Māori Language Week - Te Wiki o te reo Māori.

Sonny Ngatai is the host of the Sky TV series Tiki Towns, and along with his two young co-hosts Bobbie and Te Ataakura, he's on a mission to get Kiwis up to speed on the pronunciation and history of some of Aotearoa's trickier place names.

Sonny joins us to talk te reo Māori, the importance of history, and pronunciation tips.
