Kia ora! Nau mai, haere mai ki a Whare Kōrero
Welcome to Whare Kōrero, Fire and Emergency New Zealand‘s Māori Cultural Intelligence app.
Whare Kōrero is designed to help the workforce of Fire and Emergency New Zealand on those occasions where an understanding of Māori tikanga; rituals, protocol and etiquette are required. It is also intended as a useful resource for our clients and members of the public.
New Zealand is a unique mix of cultures and all of us must be comfortable with, and respectful of, the different aspects of each culture.
By increasing our knowledge, we can increase our understanding. By increasing our understanding, we can increase our trust and respect for each other.
This resource is intended to help us grow this understanding by alleviating any barriers to participation and building understanding of each other’s culture and values, which is a gift we can pass on to future generations.
We’ve included information on te reo Māori (the Māori language), tikanga (customs), whakataukī (proverbs) and waiata (songs), to help you understand more about our unique and shared cultural heritage.
