Tamaki Int. - Learn to Speak Maori 3

This is one from our new series. This is presented by Sidena who wanted to share a waiata that she learnt at Point England (Primary School). The waiata (song) has the basic body parts in Maori sung to the tune of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". The Maori parts of the body are as follows:
  • Mahunga - head
  • Pakahiwi - shoulders
  • Puku - stomach
  • Hope - hips
  • Waewae - legs
This video was filmed at Tamaki Intermediate on Thursday 7th July 2008 in our resource room by Brooke from Room Five.

I think this is great I could hear the pronounciation in the words to help me emulate to teach in a junior class in a Pakuranga school.
