My language is to be cherished; my language is my object of affection

Celebrate International Women’s Month with a selection of poems from The Complete Collected Poems of Maya Angelou, which have been translated into te reo Māori. 

Co-hosted by Pānia Papa and Miriama Kamo and featuring wāhine graduates from Te Panekiretanga o Te Reo Institute of Māori Language Excellence, this is a delectable sample of words crafted with passion and emotion, translated by a host of language warrior women from across Aotearoa. 


Breakfast included.
