We promote the positive side and positive people of Maoridom! This podcast's aim is to provide everyone, Maori and non-Maori alike to experience our beautiful culture and people as it is, not as it has been stigmatised to be in the past. Hosted by Scott and Daz, we're bringing you onboard with us to listen to some amazing Maori people absolutely crushing it in modern society and challenging all of the norms. Fuuuee Whanau - lets get our ears excited!
Jhan Gavala - Episode 20
Sports Psychology is a common fixture in modern day sport however having a Māori male working within that space is not. When some of us hear 'Psychology' we may default to words such as mental illness, shrinks and issues. While this may be true Jhan fills us in on how sports psychology helps to refine the minds of the modern athlete and help them tap into their inner calm and extra 1%. He also explains his journey that landed him in this space and some of the benefits connecting Māori athletes with Māori thinking.
The Korero Sessions - Lockdown Week 2
We're still here and chances are we'll be here for a good while longer! This is our take on our personal experience of being in Lockdown for the second week. In Aotearoa we're incredibly privileged to have our borders shut and to be put down into lockdown early preventing a further spread of the Corona virus. For us this has been an amazing time to be able to watch the taiao replenish, for us to take stock of what's important to us and for our minds to settle.
This of course comes from a space where we're privileged to have a safe home and a good support network. We can't deny that we're incredibly lucky to say this. In this ep we korero on what it's like for us and also go into what it might be like for others who aren't in the same position as us.
The Korero Session - Lockdown Week 1
The Corona virus has affected the world in a massive way and as we write this we're still in the midst of it all. This lockdown is something none of us in Aotearoa have seen within our lifetime and it can be pretty scary but also have some strange positives to it. Daz and Scott get together over the internet to record a Korero Session on what they've noticed in week 1. Set aside some time (you're in lockdown - you've probably got a ton of it!) and settle into 'The Korero Session - Lockdown'
Daniel 'DK' Kereopa - Episode 19
DK is the ultimate waterman, not just from the perspective of being a champion surfer but because he is in tune with our waters. If you're a kid you may have taken surfing lessons with him, if you're a surfer you'll know him as a force to be reckoned with. If you're a Raglan local you've no doubt heard of the Kereopa whanau and if you haven't heard of him, you're about to in a way that not many have.
In this episode we thought we were going to talk about DK's surfing career and accolades but where this interview went was mind blowing and an absolute privilege for us to experience, to the point that we were both speechless at regular intervals. As always, put some well deserved time aside and sink into the korero with Daniel Kereopa.
The Korero Sessions - Radio Silence
It's been a hectic few months for both of us at Maranga, with Daz locking into family life and Scott starting full immersion te reo Maori. In this episode we fill you in on our recent radio silence, don't worry - we're still on the waka e te whanau!
Hohepa Thompson aka The Hori - Episode 017
As we see in 2020 we welcome the episode with Hohepa Thompson aka 'The Hori'.
Like a lot of us, Hohepa grew up around whanau at home here in Aotearoa and then bailed off overseas in search of new adventures. It was his calling back home that would make way for a new path, directing his energy towards art that provokes thought, conversation and sometimes controversy when it comes to our Maori culture and how we're perceived. From Fashion Week to colab's with Tame Iti, he's pushing boundaries that are making an impact.
See in the New Year right and take the time to listen to 'The Hori'!
Kia Ora, Thank you for creating your podcast. I too am Maori and live in Sunshine Coast, Australia, being away from my papa kainga makes me yearn for my culture and reo. I love listening to you both and your guests whakaaro and journey. I can resonate with words and it is very powerful to see and hear about successful, proud and courageous maori people. Thank you for your truthful and honest podcast! Keep up the epic korero - I have listened to every episode and look forward to hearing any future korero. Thanks you for sharing Maranga with the world ❤️
I love this podcast and the concept of it- can relate to your stories even though I’m an oldie...hehe. I’m of Maori decent too, but born in Australia 🇦🇺 although lived in Rotorua most of my life. (Now live in Brissie with my family). Also never learnt te Reo as mum was punished for speaking Maori in school. She speaks it fluently too. Also didn’t know mum spoke te Reo until I was 10 and didn’t even know I was Maori too till then. Now I’m turning 50 and have my own family I do think of learning te Reo for myself (never too late!) Thank you for bringing this awesome message to the world. 🙏🏽🌹Love it 💖
