KŌRERO AWHI

Open communication, being supportive.

Māori from all backgrounds told us what kōrero awhi means to them.

They talked about telling one another that they love each other every day; and encouraging kids by giving them positive feedback and rewarding their good behaviour.

A wahine said that kōrero awhi means doing the things her mum showed her, like helping the nannies.

And a tane talked about using humour like Billy T James to break down barriers while another tane reckons we need to give people the courage to say how they really feel.

Others describe kōrero awhi as hugging, sharing a cuppa, and talking about stuff in the moment rather than letting things drag on and build up.

“Positive kōrero feeds the mind and spirit of our whānau.
E Tu - spend time with your whānau and awhi them today”
