Ako | Learn
We know that our teachers in schools throughout New Zealand are calling out for teaching resources in te reo Māori or about kaupapa Māori. Our mission as part of this project is to help fill that gap. We have worked with Grant and Gaynor Hakaria who have decades of teaching experience in mainstream, bilingual, and immersion settings. With their support we have created a suite of resources for each of our animations to support kaiako, teachers and parents to pass on the learnings in our pūrākau to tamariki in kura and at home.
These rauemi can be adapted to suit all learning levels, and can be delivered in any setting. They are designed to learn and reinforce the key vocabulary, characters and main ideas from the pūrākau. The teacher notes suggest curriculum links and possible further exploration.

Hō. 7: Hinerongo rāua ko Tūteurutira
Ka noho atu a Ngāti Kurī ki te pā o Kaihinu i Te Waipounamu, ka tū atu he riri ki a Rangitāne. Ka pāhuatia tētahi pā o Rangitāne. I reira ka mauheretia tētahi wahine, ko Hinerongo. Nāwai ka mōhio a Tūteurutira he wahine rangatira tērā nō roto o Ngāti Māmoe. I whakatau ia kia whakahoki atu a Hinerongo ki tōna anō iwi. I tū ngātahi atu a Tūteurutira ki a Ngāti Māmoe kia whai utu, he mōrearea engari i roto i ēnei mahi āpea ka tau mai he rangimarie, āpea he whakauru hou.

Hō. 6: Pūraho
I Te Whanganui-a-Tara a Ngāti Kurī e noho ana, heoi he tūtakarerewa te noho. I te tutū te pūehu i waenga i a rātou me ētahi atu iwi. Nā Pūraho te whakatau kia hūnuku atu tōna rāhi, ā, i heke rātou ki te pā o Kaihinu, i Te Waipounamu noho ai. Heoi he rite tonu te tutūnga puehu i reira, ka tohe, ka puta. I riro mā te tama a Pūraho, mā Marukaitātea te ara ka whāia e Ngāti Kurī e whakatakoto.
Ep. 6: Pūraho

But tragedy and conflict would follow Ngāti Kurī. It was left to Marukaitātea the son of Pūraho to determine how Ngāti Kurī would respond.
