What is Te Rekamauroa?

The name Te Rekamauroa is derived from a type of kūmara that Whakaotirangi, wife of Hoturoa, brought to Aotearoa on the Tainui waka from Hawaiki.

Translated as “The Long-Lasting Sweetness”, the kūmara was traditionally grown and harvested in ways that had to be adapted to suit the new environment; much like how we need to stay current and think strategically around language regenesis today, so we can forever savour the sweetness of the Māori language.

What is Te Rua Korotangi?

Te Rua Korotangi is phase two of Te Rekamauroa. It is an optional yet inspirational support programme for graduates as they complete each level of Te Rekamauroa. 

It provides participants with examples and opportunities to embed te reo Māori teachings within their learning environments, through fun events and initiatives.

The name Te Rua Korotangi refers to the traditional storehouse in Kāwhia where the kūmara that Whakaotirangi brought over was stored, therefore acting as a repository to nurture the sweetness of the harvest, or in our case, the richness of the learnings acquired through Te Rekamauroa.
