Kupu Takutai - Coastal Terms: Geography

Kia ora koutou, it’s Māori Language Week!

Te Hunga Takutai o Aotearoa (New Zealand Coastal Society) has produced a new poster to encourage the use of Te Reo Māori in your mahi and every day. Since last year's post was very well received, we are excited to create another Kupu Takutai to celebrate Māori Language Week, this time focusing on coastal geography.

So please share this poster far and wide.

High resolution pdf versions of the Kupu Takutai can be found in our publications page here

Kia kaha Te Reo Māori!

We acknowledge there may be additional alternative Te Reo Māori translations for some of the coastal terms used in this poster and many kupu have a deeper meaning.
