One Comment on “Home”

  1. Hi Neil,

    Taina Tangaere McGregor, who worked at the Alexander Turnbull Library (and still is), was on the NOHANZ Executive at the time, and who is a native speaker, says ‘o te motu’ came naturally to her. It means ‘of this place’ (ie NZ) and was the same but a more creative way of saying Aotearoa. It was discussed with the Maori Language Commission. Another Maori colleague has agreed that not all use Aotearoa.
