"Ko te reo te mauri o te mana Māori "
Katerina Te Heikoko Mataira (Ngāti Pōrou) can now add another string to her bow having been named the 2009 recipient of the LinguapaxAward for her contribution to te reo Māori. Because it's not for the kumara to talk of its own sweetness, Ana Tapiata is at the ceremony with Cathy Dewes nō Te Arawa, Ngāti Pōrou and Junior Mataira (Katerina's husband) who both pay homage to the kuia .
Taane Mete and Taiaroa Royal have pooled their creative talents and formed dance company Okareka. Long overdue, Some would say, since they are viewed as dance royalty. Maraea Rakuraku asks whether as takatāpui Māori they have ever felt comprised and just how autobiographical is their first creation - Tama Ma.
On the web version of the show: Everything has come full circle for Whatitiri te Wake who is teaching te reo Māori to pre-school children at the very Kohanga Reo he attended as a baby. He explains to Justine Murray the advantages te reo Māori has given him.
This week's whakataūki was voiced by Whatitiri Te Wake nō Ngāti Kahungunu, Te Rarawa.
Waiata featured: Nga Tamariki o Te Kohu from the album Te Wao Nui a Tane by Hirini Melbourne
Produced and presented by Justine Murray
