Pepeha - Summer Learning Journey - Day 3 Task 2

This is my Pepeha

Ko Taupiri                         Te maunga (mountain)
Ko Waikato                       Te awa (river)
Ko Tainui                           Te waka (canoe)
Ko Ngati Maniapoto        Te iwi (tribe
Ko Te Hape                        Te marae
Ko Liddington                   Te whanau (family)
Ko Jeremy                       Te papa (father)
Ko Annalisse                      Te mama (mother)

Ko Kiana                           Te ingoa (your name)


  1. Kia ora Kiana,

    What a beautiful pepeha. My son, Aronui, is half-Maori and half-Canadian and his Maori family is from Ngaruwahia. His nana (and much of his family) is buried on Taupiri, his awa is the Waikato and his iwi is Tainui. It's really cool to read that you two are connected through your ancestry. It is a small world, isn't it?

    I hope that you and your family are having a really nice holiday together. Aronui and I had our Christmas Day a little bit early. We celebrated on the 23rd so that he could have a second Christmas with his dad's family today. Lucky guy - he gets to have two Christmases!

    Speaking of Christmas, I better head away and put the ham in the oven for our dinner tonight. I'll look forward to checking your blog again soon to see if you've had time to post another activity. Hopefully you will!

    Miri Kirihimete,

    Rachel :)

    1. Hi Rachel,

      It is a small world, and it's so crazy that we had a early Christmas to, we had our early Christmas on the 18th with my Mum's family. Then on Christmas we spent it with my Dad's family.

      I hope you and your family is have a great holiday to.

  2. Kia Ora Kiana
