Ka kuraina koe e au! I’m gonna school you…and you, and you! So are you up to the challenge?
This innovative Māori language app allows you to compete against friends while battling for language supremacy.
How the game works
There are five different games to play in this app, including:
Puna Kupu – The objective of this game is to increase your vocabulary. You will hear the correct pronunciation and see the names of images used throughout the rest of the games.
E Rua, e Rua – Use your knowledge from the vocabulary practice to correctly match the word to its image or vice versa before the time limit runs out.
Ihumanea – This multi-choice game aims to increase your knowledge by introducing various sentence structures.
Tohu Kupu – Use your knowledge from Ihumanea to correctly form the Māori sentence, which is given to you in English to translate.
Kīkiki Pāoro – Answer the NZ general knowledge questions by kicking the rugby ball over the correct goal post.
Other cool things
- You can build your own alter-ego (Toikura) from a range of options.
- There is a scoreboard that displays the name, alter-ego (Toikura) and school of those who reign supreme.
- There is also single player and multi-player options to test your knowledge against others.
As well as the words one would expect in a traditional dictionary, it also has encyclopaedic entries designed to provide key information about plants, animals, stars, planets, heavenly bodies, important Māori people, key ancestors of traditional narratives, tribal groups, ancestral canoes, song types, musical instruments, Māori names for institutions, country names, place names and other proper names. There are also detailed explanations of key concepts central to Māori culture. Comprehensive explanations for grammatical items are included, with examples of usage, as are idioms and colloquialisms with their meanings and examples.

The Te Whanake app currently contains Te Whanake 1 Te Kākano, the first textbook in the series of four – other levels may be added over time. Each level will pull material from the textbook, study guide, animations, podcasts, exercise sheets and the TV programmes of the Te Whanake series. For example, one grammar point will have some wording largely taken from the textbook, and be supported by a number of resources from within the series to help with learning of that grammar point. Illustrations from the textbooks are also used. The app essentially contains all the content from the printed textbook, plus all the additional resources for each grammar point.
You can preview part of Te Kākano or purchase the full programme through the in-app purchase.
The Te Whanake series is a set of learning resources to develop Māori language ability from beginner through to advanced levels. It is a popular set of resources that have been used by teachers and learners in many secondary and tertiary Māori language classes for over 25 years. During that time a wide range of resources catering for all aspects of Māori language learning have been added, thus providing a rich programme for learners.
Beyond this app, the Te Whanake series contains a comprehensive set of hard copy print Māori language learning resources, including: four textbooks with three complementary study guides; recorded audio and video listening and speaking exercises to accompany each chapter of the four textbooks; three teachers’ manuals; and a Māori dictionary and index to the content of the series for learners and teachers. The series is designed to take learners from the beginner through to the advanced levels. You can find out more about the Te Whanake series on the website www.tewhanake.maori.nz.
In 1990 a committee headed by Rangiiria Headley was formed to establish our own local station in Turangi. For this to become a reality theTuwharetoa Māori Trustboard was given the huge task of being kaitiaki (License holder) for the frequencies which they still oversee.
Once the license and a NZ-On-Air setup grant was in place, Tuwharetoa FM's first official broadcast was in Feb 1991 at the old Waiariki Polytech outpost on Dekker Drive. In Jan 1993 we moved to the eastern part of the Turangi Town Mall and finally relocated to our current premises mid-town in October 1998.
Another milestone took place when the Tuwharetoa District Te Kohanga Reo Unit became the broadcaster for the station until the inception of the current Tuwharetoa FM Charitable Trust - which consists of five Iwi representatives from the region.

We run the only commercial operation at Waiorua Bay which includes the only overnight accommodation on Kapiti Island, Kapiti Nature Lodge; bird and history tours, and other activities like traditional harakeke-flax weaving weekends, seal watching, and seafood gathering. Our work here is uniquely connected to the taonga (treasures) of Kapiti Island.
We work closely with the Department on Conservation to nurture and protect New Zealand’s most precious native birds, including Little Spotted Kiwi, Takahe, Kākā, Weka, Tīeke (Saddleback), Kereru, Kokako, Hihi, Toutouwai (Robin). At the same time, we offer a remarkable, unforgettable experience.
Most of the day to day operations are run by Amo’s daughter, Minnie Clark, and she’s the person you’re most likely to first speak to. Many visitors keep in touch with the Kapiti Island whanau well after their visit. After all, they’ve made precious connections.
John and Amo’s iwi (tribe) and whanau (family) have been living on Kapiti Island since the 1820s. We have gathered generations of knowledge and experiences on the island’s history and grown to be recognised as a world renowned nature reserve. Kapiti Nature Lodge, the only accommodation on Kapiti Island, was inspired by the homestead of John and Amo’s grandmother who opened her farm homestead to visitors.
All the whanau on Kapiti Island consider living and working on one of New Zealand’s most precious taongas (treasures), a top visitor attraction in New Zealand, as a wonderful way to live in this world. One of the ways we share our natural sense of hospitality is through the expression of maanakitanga. Nature belongs to everyone, and sharing our knowledge with you is all part of our natural expression of hospitality.
The use of solar power, recycling, gathering or sourcing local food, and a deep respect for the land and wildlife, makes Kapiti Island Nature Tours unique.
Together with Amo, John and other whanau, we have other expert and passionate guides to help provide you with good birding, walking, and accommodation options: Day tours, one-hour guided walks, seafood gathering and traditional flax weaving activities, overnight stays in the Kapiti Nature Lodge, night Kiwi-spotting, fantastic wholesome food, and a chance to be truly nature-inspired.

NZ Wild Life is a 4-Part Series.
NZ is an island nation with a history of long isolation. There were no land mammals apart from bats. The birds of New Zealand have evolved to include a large number of unique species. Isolated from any other land mass for 65 million years, New Zealand became a land of birds.
When Captain James Cook arrived in the 1770s he noted that the bird song was deafening. Māori and European settlement has been the cause of a huge decline in the numbers of birds and the extinction of about one third of the original bird species.
Until the arrival of the first humans, NZ had an extraordinarily diverse range of specialised birds. In New Zealand, the ecological niches normally occupied by mammals as different as rodents, kangaroos and moles, were filled by reptiles, insects, or birds. The only terrestrial mammals were three species of bat.
