Māori at Home
Scotty and Stacey Morrison
Raupo - $35.00

Māori at Home is the perfect introduction to the Māori language.
It’s a highly practical, easy and fun resource for everyday New Zealanders that covers the basics of life in and around a typical Kiwi whare (household).

Whether you’re practising hākinakina (sport), getting ready for kura (school), celebrating a huritau (birthday), preparing a rārangi kai (shopping list) or relaxing at the tātahi (beach), Māori at Home gives you the words and phrases, as well as the confidence, you need.

Māori at Home fills a very real need for parents and families with the Māori language increasingly a part of work, school and formal occasions in New Zealand.

Māori at Home is authored by high-profile te reo Māori advocates and media personalities Scotty and Stacey Morrison.
