New Zealand Waita - Activity #1 day #4

Today I have completed activity #1 for day 4#. I had to find a New Zealand Maori Waiti song. The song I chose was 'Aotearoa'. The reason why I chose this song is because it was shot he in New Zealand and the lyrics in talk about how strong we New Zealanders are and we come from the land of god which is precisely New Zealand (Aotearoa). You will be able to listen to the song by clicking the video on the top.


  1. Kia ora Viva,

    What a great waiata! I had not heard this one before so thank you for finding it. It was very helpful that you included the video for the song. Good thinking!
    I think those are great reasons to have picked this song. It's important to listen to the meaning of songs I think.
    Do you know how Aotearoa got it's name?

    I look forward to reading more of your blog over summer.

  2. Hi Vivanisi,
    I can see how being the land of the long white cloud gives us a connection to god, although I see you have put the lyrics and the song, and not the beautiful views of New Zealand shown in the original music video.

    Keep it up
