He tapu te parapara? He aha i tapu ai? Me pēhea e porowhiu atu? Is waste/trash sacred? If so, why? How is it to be disposed of? In the first week of Mahuru Māori, the Taringa trio ponders these questions in consideration of such practices as tā moko, tangihanga and humuhumu (amputation) with the remnants and their disposal in mind.
What is a hapa? What is a whati? What are they in the context of te reo Māori and tikanga Māori? What are the underpinning principles that make them Māori concepts? Why can I say "KAITOA!" when I'm relieved or satisfied with something?
As we face new and uncharted waters, so too does te reo Māori. What kupu do we use for certain terms like hand sanitiser? Pandemic? Social distancing? Ka āta wānangahia te tokotoru o Taringa atu i tō rātou ake 'kāhui rāhui' mō tēnei kaupapa.
This week's episode explores the use of the prefix "whaka".
In this "Patapātai" episode, our hosts answer questions about education systems, pepeha structure, Christianity, and Tangihanga.
Paraone, Snow and Erica discuss Tikanga mō te kai in various contexts.
Karanga te hau muri, karanga te hau runga, karanga te hau uru, karanga te hau whiti karanga ngā taonga o tua whakarere. The Ngā Taonga series continues as the Taringa trio look at some excerpts of karanga. We also contest the thought of how and when the karanga was to be used. Whakarongo mai.
Hari huri tau ki a Taringa! Special guests Che Wilson and Rangi Matamua join us in the film studio for our 4th birthday. We answer some audience pātai, and speak in depth about the Tikanga of Matariki and Puanga.
Ko hea tēnei wāhi? In this Kupu,Kupu,Kupu episode we discuss place names and the language associated with them.
The ultimate koha: Should I give blood? Is it tapu? This week we host special guests Pio Terei and Nicola Adams (better known as Nix) to discuss donating blood from a mātauranga Māori perspective. Tau ana ngā manuhiri, tau ana ngā kōrero, tau ana te kaupapa.
Mānawatia a Matariki. This week's Once Upon a Taima retells the story about the battle between Tūmatauenga and Tāwhirimātea which eventuates into the creation of Matariki.
We speak with Te Korou from Te Wharekura o Hoani Waititi who let's us in on the way our rangatahi are coming up with their own kīwaha. We also look at the development of te reo Māori as it progresses into the 21st century. Ka hūiki tō tātou tīma Taringa i runga i te māramatanga ehara rātou i te hunga taiohi ināianei.
In this "Patapātai" episode, our hosts answer questions around the use of Karanga in modern contexts, Whakatau, and the various dialects that have developed across Aotearoa.
What's in a name? The Taringa trio look at the thoughts and considerations that are or should be taken when naming such things as whare (marae and contemporary buildings), taonga (heirlooms, objects) and kaupapa (initiatives, companies). Keep an ear out also for our kīwaha that denotes a period since something has happened.
Me kore ake te kākā wahanui i ngā kaikōrero o tēnei putanga. We harrow through the collections of Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision to showcase the skills of the kākā wahanui (the prominent orator). Whakarongo mai!
Ruia, ruia, tahia tahia! Tia Waitai-Henare a young prodigy of Ngāti Kurī ilk gives us a glimpse into the history of the northern most iwi of Aotearoa.
Our third scary story is inspired by real events from Paraone's childhood. Parental guidance recommended.
Paraone and Snowy discuss the use of mihi in various contexts, looking at questions like: "What are the mainstays?" and, "What gets over-used" etc.
Paraone and Erica discuss names of people - babies and adults being named, the meanings behind them and how they are used and received.
