Our Whare Kōrero App / Kia kaha te reo Māori
Your pocket guide to te reo Māori, tikanga and Fire and Emergency resources.
To build Te Ao Māori capability and capacity at Fire and Emergency, we’ve developed the Whare Kōrero app to give you knowledge and confidence to interact with others using te reo Māori and customs.
Using the app, you can learn about customs when visiting a marae, build your own mihi and pepeha, practice Fire and Emergency’s waiata and karakia plus so much more!
You can download the app from your play store(external link) or app store(external link) and give it a go. All you need is a wifi connection to complete the download, you do not require an internet connection to use the app. It is also available to the public so your whānau can download it too and you can practice together.
