This is a great model for teachers wanting to build cultural responsiveness enacting within educational settings for Māori. Firstly, viewing the whare as a person and considering how each taha connects to the Maori child's obtainment of knowledge. I would use this with teachers and students to demonstrate the importance of hauora.
The purpose of this resource is to provide teachers with information, prompts and questions to stimulate thinking and discussion about their current practice and how responsive that practice is to the specific learning and cultural needs of Māori learners. Excellent for an RTLB to share with teachers they are working with
The Fish of Maui is an example of a New Zealand myth story books for kids. It is a bout Maui's jealous brothers don't want him to come fishing with them. Maui is cleverer than they are, however, and not only does he trick them, but he catches the best fish of all. Great for teachers to explain the Maori legend of how Aoetearoa was formed.
