Pepeha

Today I will look at pepeha.  Pepeha is how we introduce ourselves.

 

 

 

Ko …………………………………te waka

 

            Ko ……………………………….. te maunga

        Ko ……………………………………….te awa

  Ko …………………………………… te marae

       Ko …………………………..Ahau

This is a simple version.  You can add your iwi, hapu, grandparents, parents etc.  It is a usually within a mihi or speech that is said in more formal gatherings.  You can change the pictures or get children to draw their canoe, mountain,river. meeting house themselves.  If they are not Māori they can choose to say they came on a Plane to this country.  And maybe name the things in the area where they live now.

Any questions on pepeha you may like to ask your local Māori people too as some iwi have a different order in which they name things.

Have a lovely day.
