Say It Tika Say It Right

This week is Maori language week. Vodafone and google maps have partnered up on a website called say it tika. Google maps sometimes have trouble saying Maori places here in New Zealand. I chose to do Opahi where I am from because tourist always get this place wrong. I did two other places to like Taupo and Whakamaru. Kia Kaha New Zealand keep our native language true.  


  1. Hi Shakaia,
    My name is Reitu and I am a year 7 in Te Ngahere at Paihia School. Your post about say it tika say it right is so cool. I really like how you put images about your post.

    How did you get your information?

    Thanks for posting,

    My​ ​name​ ​is​ ​Alexsi​ ​and​ ​I​ ​am​ ​a​ ​year​ ​7​ ​student​ ​in​ ​Te​ ​Ngahere​ ​at
    Paihia​ ​School.​ ​I​ ​really​ ​like​ ​your​ ​say​ ​it​ ​tika,​ ​say​ ​it​ ​right​ ​post.​ ​I
    agree​ ​with​ ​you​ ​%100​ ​that​ ​tourist​ ​always​ ​go​ ​to​ ​Maori​ ​towns
    and​ ​places​ ​and​ ​they​ ​can’t​ ​pronounce​ ​the​ ​kupu​ ​correctly!!!​ ​I
    hope​ ​to​ ​encourage​ ​people​ ​to​ ​learn​ ​more​ ​Te​ ​Reo​ ​and​ ​help
    others​ ​pronounce​ ​the​ ​places​ ​where​ ​we​ ​are​ ​from​ ​correctly.

    Keep​ ​up​ ​the​ ​amazing​ ​work!
