Te reo practise (Sandy)
Teenaa koe e mara e Sandy moo taau whai i te reo. Me peehea pea taaku whakamahiri i a koe ki te ako i te reo? He aha ngaa aahuatanga o te reo e hiahia aawhina ana koe? Whiuwhiua mai aau urupounamu, ahakoa te take o te urupounamu, maaku e mea ki te whakahoki atu hei oranga ngaakau moou. Just file all your questions about te reo my way, and i'll make an attempt to provide some answers for you. Ahakoa raa, ko Te Reinga tooku maunga, ko Hokianga Whakapau Karakia te moana, ko Waimirirangi te whare tuupuna whakaminemine taangata, ko Pare te whare whakaora puku tangata, ko Waihou-nui-o-Koohinemataroa te waahi, ko Panguru te rohe, ko Te Rarawa me Ngaapuhi ngaa iwi, ko Ngaatokimatawhaorua te waka, ko Te Taitokerau te rohe whaanui. Noho ora mai raa moo naaianei e mara.

Tena koutou katoa kua tau mai ki runga i teenei wharangi o te PAPA PANUI. Too koutou waimarie hoki!
First of all I'd just like to say kia Ora to who ever came up with the idea of having a papapaanui. Its been awesome coming here and checking up with who wants to know what, who's having a Reunion, or even Tauiwi from all over the world wanting to know about Nga Tikanga Maori and all the other things that our rich culture has to offer.
I love this page mainly because it keeps me infromed of what is happening back home in Aotearoa seeing that Im all the way over here in Canada working for a Dance Company (Kapa-Haka Group) thats based here in Niagara Falls. I guess that internet as a whole has made Aotearoa seem alot more closer to me. Well I guess I have ranted on long enough, but keep the korero rolling and I'll be a happy little maori.

Aroha nui

Kia Ora,
I am originally from New Zealand and now study the Urantia Book in Sedona Arizona. We fuse the indigenous ways within our beliefs and I would like to connect with Maori people. I searched long and hard for this reality and was thrilled to know such an existence was on this planet. If you are interested in connecting with me, if you are a truth seeker, and want to know more, I'd love to hear from you.

Aussie starts Kapahaka for 2nd year
Kia ORa...
Well season 2002 is underway for me over here in Melbourne. My fledgling roopu "Taku Mana" has just begun for the year. We are only small at the moment, but very confident that we will grow over time. Certainly groups cant get huge overnight.
For me personally, this is my 2nd year at it, and much looking forward to the year ahead. Another learning curve for me, and that learning will never cease. Of course we never stop learning aye.
From a personal view, the local Maoris down here have been totally supportive of me, and I cant thank them enough. They seem to think that my effort at last years Melbourne Festival was impressive (I am not so sure!!) so I figured, there is no reason to leave, every reason to stay on and give kapahaka another crack this year.
Some of you may be familiar with the following waiata.. Rerenga Wairua, Kapohia, Taku Mana E, Papaki (poi). They are the waiata we have touched on thus far.
I am keen to have contacts from NZ to learn from and take advice on Kapahaka.. and mabye a bit of rugby thrown in (hehehe). Although I have heaps of contacts here, it is my belief that to have contacts from NZ is doubly important. Please email me anytime. I am keen to share..
Kia ora..

reply to tetahi
Kia ora tetahi, whanau has set up email so drop me a line (same as yours). Also, are there any Ngapuhi related to the Ogilvy family out there? Am trying to work out our whakapapa. We originate from the Martin family, John Martin married Kitiora (or kiriora), daughter of Te Manene (or Te Waenga, Tohunga of Pakanoe - this is early 1800's people). John and Kiriora had three children, one of whom was Mary who married James Rowe (1806 - 1863). When James died, she remarried Daniel Boyce (I think from the Bay of Islands area), and had 3 children, one of whom was Eliza Jane who married Walter William Muir Ogilvy. They had 6 children, one of whom was William George Edward Ogilvy, my tupuna from Otorahonga, King country. I know we have relatives in the Bay of Plenty, but any whanau - especially from Northland - who could fill the gaps would be much appreciated. We want to find our marae, our hapu, and pay our respects. Kiaora koutou, L8Z

Irish speaker wishes to contact Maori speakers.
Dia duit! Hello!
I am a fluent speaker of the Irish language who would really like to get in touch with someone who can help me to appreciate the Maori language and culture and New Zealand in general. I am 26 years old and work as a translator for a living. I'm particularly interested in comparing the current state of both languages because i see many parallels between ireland and New Zealand. But not just that! I like reading a lot, hillwalking and cycling and I like people who can make me laugh! I love nature and animals and all kinds of music. I'm always telling people that i'd love to visit new zealand but it's so far away! Until I get round to visiting your beautiful country i'd love to get in touch with a kiwi. So if you are a female and between 20 and 35 please drop me a line! (By the way i'm a guy). Go raibh maith agat! Thanks!

I dream New Zealand
Clear days and magic nights!
Allow me to introduce myself.
I’m thirty two. I am Ukrainian man, who speak English a little.
I live at the Black Sea in Yalta. I work in the bank.
I like to read, to hike, to swim, to work Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, to create fairy clips and I love Yoga, Meditation, Karlos Kastaneda and Tolkien.
I live in magic place. It name is Crimea. I love it very much!
The Crimea is, indeed, a unique natural spot on the globe. With its area of only 26 000 sq. km this patch of land is a blend of different corners of the world.
Any newcomer to the Crimea is sure to find here a small portion of his own homeland. On the peninsula, Nature has brought together landscapes of alpine meadows and American deserts with mesas, boundless Asian steppes and swamped Middle Russian fields. Here one can find impassable “taiga” windfallen trees and meager landscapes of polar tundras, sands spits of Baltic countries and steep coastal slopes of Sicily. Here the beauty of karst caves adjoins the beauty of water-falls and spectacular canyons…
By most favourable recreational climatic conditions, the South Coast resorts are among the top five world’s leaders and share one rating group with the resorts of South France.
In the Crimea well developed walking and cycling tourism, rock-climbing and alpinism, speleotourism, diving, education tourism.
I love the Nature New Zealand too. It calls to me…
I very much love Japanese poems,Maori, Sea and flowers…

You do not doubt
The sea has your own spring…
The flowers of surf…

My heart lives into this poem together with sea, flowers and Mazuo Basyo…

I’ll dream to meet the girl who loves Wild Nature, likes to travel and wants to correspond with a foreign friend. I should like improve my English and in change to teach her Russian.
And if she is elfgirl my dreams and my heart to marry for love…
Your sincerely

Kia Ora,

My name is Sharlene and I am 27 years old. I completed the last 6 months of my masters degree in social work at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch. I am American and am now back home working, however my partner is a New Zealander. I hope to begin job searching to return to NZ in October, but recognize that 6 months of knowledge is simply not enough to practice social work competently. I soaked as much Maori and Pacific Island cultural in as I could while there, but I am looking for someone who is willing to be patient with me and share more information on the Maori culture, viewpoints on what is happening politically in NZ with relation to Maori affairs(I keep up with all of the NZ newspapers), and anything else that will help me to improve my understanding of the Maori experience in New Zealand. I thank you in advance for you help.

seeking connection with maori women
since my dear maori friend returned to hawkes bay with her american husband and two children; i've lost all contact with the wonderful maori people - friends and relatives who used to come to washington, DC to visit her. save for the "all blacks" the occaisional maori film (whale rider & once were warriors) ... i am in a constant state of limbo. as to the people of polynesian islands; a more warm and open people have i yet to meet.

i would love to correspond with a maori woman involved in either arts and culture (socio-political issues) or sport

love & peace to you all ...

Also just to generally say hi!
