UC public lecture: Whakamanahia ngā tamariki:
Empowering our tamariki through language, culture and identity
University of Canterbury Senior Lecturer Kay-Lee Jones (Te Aitanga a Māhaki, Ngāti Porou, Te Whānau a Kai) will lead a kōrero on the importance of empowering cultural identity/identities and ancestral language/s of our tamariki/mokopuna in our Aotearoa teaching and learning settings.
In the School of Teacher Education, she has helped nurture a love for te reo Māori in over 2000 student teachers at UC. These graduates now share their skills in schools across Aotearoa New Zealand, normalising Māori language and culture in education every day.
The whakataukī, Poipoia te kākano, kia puāwai | Nurture the seed and it will blossom, is the foundation for her kōrero, as part of the Tauhere UC Connect public lecture series – Whakamanahia ngā tamariki: Empowering our tamariki through language, culture and identity – on Wednesday 27 July, at the University of Canterbury’s Ilam campus.
Nau mai, haere mai, come listen, engage and join the kōrero.
