Kōrero: Ngā tari Māori

Ko Bruce Biggs

Ko Bruce Biggs

Ko te reo Māori te reo tuarua o Bruce Biggs, o Ngāti Maniapoto. I akona te reo e ia i a ia e whakaako ana i ngā kura Māori i te Tai Tokerau me te Tai Rāwhiti. I te tau 1951 i tūhono ia hei kaimahi ki te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki-makaurau. I tērā wā ko ia te pouako Māori tuatahi kia ako i te reo Māori. I te tau 1958 ko Biggs tētahi o ngā kaiwhakaū i te Kāhui Wetereo o Aotearoa, nāwai, koia te perehitini o Te Rōpū Poronīhia. Kei konei ia e kōrero ana ki te pōwhiri ki waho atu i te whare mō ngā pūtaiao e pā ana ki te tangata, i Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau, i te tekau tau 1980.
