A Conversation with Dr Wayne Ngata - Tikanga Māori

From Te Ahi Kaa, 6:06 pm on 19 April 2020

Marae are only as strong as it's people, that's according to Dr Wayne Ngata who agrees that Tikanga Māori is in the most part about doing what is practical. In the wake of the Covid 19 lockdown many are taking to social media and communicating with eachother through online platforms, Dr Ngata says this space could be the new 'marae' of the future.  Justine Murray joins Dr Ngata for a conservation exploring the function of marae and the act of koha, giving to others.
