SLJ Acknowledging Ancestry:)

Activity 2: Acknowledging Ancestry:)

All of us are members of a family. Some of us have large families and some of us have very small
families. When I have the opportunity to talk about my family and my ancestry I sometimes choose to
use a pepeha. It is a very special way of identifying who I am and where I come from.
There are many different versions of pepeha but most provide people with information about who
you are and where you come from (i.e. your whakapapa).
Ko Mataka te Maunga                             
Ko Tokerau te Awa                                  
Ko Mataatua te Waka
Ko William, Martha toku tipuna
Ko Nga Puhi toku Iwi
Ko Ngati Rehia te Hapu
Ko Heruhama te Marae
Ko Hinerangi ahau

Ko Maungarei te Maunga
Ko Tamaki te awa
Ko Waitemata te moana
Ko Ruapotaka te Marae
Ko Ukutoia te Papa
Ko Hinerangi Ahau

  1. Hey Hinerangi,

    This is Jade C from the Summer Learning Journey blogging team. It's awesome to be here to read and comment on your amazing blog posts you've posted over this summer.

    First of all, well done for your time and effort you've spent to complete this activity! Did you learn how to produce your own pepeha before? I've learnt it when I was in primary and I never got a chance to think about it after that. I should try making one and share it with you :)

    I was just wondering, is there a reason why you created 2 versions of your pepeha? I would love to hear back from you!

    Have a lovely day.
    Jade C.
