Te Reo Maori and Te Ao Maori at Carey

This year Carey Baptist College will take students on a bicultural journey, with the delivery of a fun interactive course in Te Reo Māori and a paper on Maori worldview taught collaboratively by the Umu Tiirama – a group of knowledgeable Māori leaders.
Ray TotorewaThe Te Reo Māori night classes will focus on developing basic language skills for everyday use and for ministry, including mihi (greetings), pepeha (personal introductions), karakia (prayers) and waiata (songs).

The Te Ao Māori paper will provide insights into the way that Maori see the world and Christian faith within that world. Students will hear stories of pre-European and post European Aotearoa from Maori perspectives and consider the impact and implications of the Treaty of Waitangi for our society today. They’ll be challenged to consider contemporary issues from biblical perspectives and to apply the learning to their own journeys in ministry and missions.
