02 February 2012

Naia is a new website for kā waiata o Kāi Tahu. The songs are listed by genre, region, and alphabetically, and each one has the Māori words, an English translation, an explanation of the song's origin and when it's appropriate to use it, and a version to listen to.

More waiata are downloadable fromKotahi Mano Kāika also has some fun interactive Te Reo storybooks hosted by Tana the Taniwhā - the site has autoplaying audio, so if you're in a public computer space, get your headphones ready!
