Te Reo Māori Project: Te Kaahu

Dec. 10, 2021, 1:19 p.m.

Theia's reo Māori project Te Kaahu has been going well and is ending on a high with the release of a live version of her great grandmother's classic waiata Kiwi Weka. Theia speaks about the inspiration for the project Te Kaahu which came about during the first wave of Covid-19 in Aotearoa and acknowledging her tūpuna kuia for the knowledge passed down. Theia also gives a great kōrero about the waiata Kiwi Weka and the meaning behind the waiata which she has recorded her own version. This special version of ‘Kiwi Weka’ serves as a tribute to Theia’s late great grandmother, Mite Te Aho Karaka Kukutai, who composed the original waiata.
