From the marae to the whare, from getting to know each other to sharing kai, this illustrated picture dictionary is a fabulous guide to the Māori way of life!

Stacey Morrison has created an illustrated guide to Māori customs and practices for children (and adults), as a companion to her #1 bestselling My First Words in Māori.

My First Words about Tikanga Māori is a guide to Māori customs, practices and ways of doing things, and to the special words we use when talking about tikanga. With vibrant illustrations labelled in Māori and English, each page takes readers on a tour of various settings and situations, explaining the words, phrases and concepts we might encounter.

Learn all about- - powhiri (formal welcomes) - hui (meetings) - waiata (songs) - mihimihi (greetings and introductions) - forms of address - manaaki (hospitality) - aroha (showing love and compassion) - kaitiakitanga (guardianship) and so much more.

From removing our shoes as we enter a building to introducing ourselves and sharing kai, My First Words about Tikanga Māori is an excellent and practical guide for children and adults, Māori and Pakeha, New Zealanders and visitors to Aotearoa.

Designed for parents and tamariki to read together by Māori language champion and broadcaster Stacey Morrison, with engaging pictures by a team of young Māori artists, this is the perfect book to strengthen your language journey and embrace Māoritanga at home, at school, and out in the wider world.
