Session #3 of the 4-part NATIVE Minds series, 'Maori Beacons Of Our Time'

More people than ever are learning the Maori language. It’s not the language spoken by our grandparents but it reflects a modern Maori world. How can we protect the Maori spirit of the language, and how can we do it with fun in the New Year and beyond?

Guest speakers include Heni Jacob (Linguist, translator and author), and Hohepa Thompson (Artist, businessman).

This series of interactive discussions takes you up close and personal with a selection of Native Minds whose personal passions serve as beacons for all people of Aotearoa. A chance to take some light with you as you enter the Maori New Year. 

NATIVE Minds is part of Matariki Lighting the Beacons Festival, a month-long arts festival held across the Kapiti region, July 2-24. For more info and events, head to
