KO NGĀ KUPU ME TE WAIATA O TE WIKI
Te reo Maaori holds unique status as the indigenous language of Aotearoa, New Zealand. It is also an official language of Aotearoa. The early childhood curriculum, Te Whaariki, is a bilingual and bicultural document which guides everything we do as kaiako (teachers) in early childhood in NZ. Te Whaariki recognises Maaori as tangata whenua (people of this land) and states our roles as kaiako in protecting te reo Maaori as it carries the culture of our tangata whenua.
