    Kia ora Alex,

    Thank you so much for sharing your personal experiences and insights into being Pākehā learning reo and tikanga Māori. I envy your exposure to Māoritanga and appreciate your views about many non-Māori having a simplistic concept of bi-culturalism. I would love my Pākehā children to learn and value reo and tikanga Māori. But I need to up my own learning too! We need people like you to help guide us.
