    • ahem
      *cough cough*
      Hello I am bad player
      But I approve of the hamilton

    • Lol nah it's fine, we can just leave it here (gotta get started on my work anyway) but it was cool to talk to you and it's awesome to meet another Maori on here \(^v^)/

    • I've started learning more about the language since I start my bachelors in Maori Visual Arts 4 years ago, but there are times where I do feel like a bit of a failure, or embarrassment to my people. Especially since my father is considered to be a 'rangatira' when it come to the language, so people sometimes expect me to be like him when I'm really REALLY not :'D

      But I have gotten better at over coming these insecurities, especially when I discovered that I wasn't the only one feeling like this and that a lot of other young maori deal with the same issues. I've actually addressed these feelings in my art for my 4th year exhibition and I feel like it's helped me embrace my identity rather than run away from it.

    • Lmao I know NOTHING
      I mean, I know WORDS but I can't hold a conversation. I understand Maori concepts (like mana, mauri, whenua and all that) more than I understand the language. My father and some of my aunts, uncles and cousins can speak the language fluently but I can't :''''D

    • Cool! So you're from up north?
      My Iwi is Kahungunu, I do whakapapa back to other iwi, but that's the main one I associate with.

    • Tbh I'm always surprised to meet any user that isn't from America or Canada
      I'm just looking at your villager names now and surprised I didn't cotton on earlier that you were Maori fff

      If you don't mind me asking, do you know which Iwi you're from? (totally cool if you don't wanna say)

      I've seen you around and I was...like *squints* are you Maori or do you just live in NZ???
      Though I did have a feeling when I saw your username and noticed that you were from NZ. It's cool to see other Maori on here, I thought I was the only one!

    • Lol yeah same I was gonna say: or should you count on it dun dun duh! The world will never know what I know about the fanfic

    • or at least if you tack "lade" to the end of your user
