Maori Culture and Language

This is a cultural resources site for those interested in learning more about the Maori culture and language.

This site is run and maintained by a member of the Kapa Haka group in Santiago, Chile.

Here you will find a list of Maori songs that we perform with their English and Spanish translations. An example can be seen here: E Te Ariki

We have started to create some pages where you can learn the Maori Language starting from the basics.

We have some Maori Proverbs with their translations.

There is also a page with a detailed description about how to make a Traditional Maori Hangi. (We have made quite a few of them here in Santiago).
