Maori Language Week 2018 - Ngā momo wai, Types of Water

Water New Zealand was proud to help celebrate Te wiki o te reo Māori (10-16 September 2018). We’ve prepared a poster for you to help in understanding the importance of water and the words we can use to describe water from a Māori perspective.

The poster shows us key water types with a description of what they mean and includes the importance of Ranginui (Sky Father) and Papatūānuku (Earth Mother) in providing us with precious waiora – life-sustaining water.

Download the poster and please feel free to share it so we can all strengthen our understanding of ‘wai’ in Aotearoa.
