Learn to speak Māori


Te Whanake Animations is an excellent site if you too wish to learn Māori, the language spoken by the indigenous people of New Zealand.


This website contains 15 animated modules that will introduce you to different aspects of the Māori language.  You’ll meet some new friends in these movies, Te Hererīpene, Mīria, Eruera, Tarati, Wiremu and little Neihana. You are able to add the Māori text and the English translation to the movies so that you can understand and learn the new language you are hearing.
