Nau mai haere mai ki ngā "wānanga" o Willie!
Ol' Willie is normally found behind the wheel of Northland Express pahi from Tāmaki to Te Taitokerau. Engari, Willie's been in lockdown experimenting with the ol Zoom and every day this week he'll bring you a virtual road trip north with all the "wānanga" that goes along with it from his very own whare - a "zānanga" if you will.
Willie's Wānanga on Wheels is a satirical statement on the impact of the forced removal of Te Reo Māori from society in generations past, what it takes to regain our knowledge and the pitfalls of translation... Or is it?
