    Maori News is our Daily Commitment

    It is a beautiful day here in Rotorua, as our daughter Hiona plays under the hose with her cousin Te Aroha, a cicada singing proudly in the background.

    Morena! Morena!! It has been fantastic being home.  Rotorua, for all its smell and rain, has been very hot and muggy.  We spent over 2 months with whanau, first in the Gold Coast and then in California, learning a little more about each other.  Our children had a great time with their Opa and ...
