  1. I seriously love your website.. Pleasant colors & theme. Did you build this website yourself?
    Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my very own site and would like
    to know where you got this from or what the theme is
    named. Many thanks!

  2. Interesting comment Joe, Im not going to support that whakaaro… how do you think Matatini was conceived,or, Iwi Sport events, from Maori who are concerned with IWI as a whole. Health being a primary need for our Peoples. PhD holders involved at higher and Political levels insuring that those very events are part of yours and my norm…Aue Joe, kore e mohio.

    Fabulous that Dee is investigating this area….WHY, because!!! I myself have become computer (addicted)…oops I mean literate for the fact that half my visionary information comes via my computer now,then contact fom whanau is also dependant on Phone, so a mobile is another essential need.
    I cannot keep up with the costs of the latest products of these tools but find I’m startin to lose focus if I don’t keep up with my daily intake of local an international Media/socializing etc.
    It is also not just me, I found on my latest trip back to NZ THAT ALL MY WHANAU THERE HAVE AND USE THEIR COMPUTERS/MOBILES as a constant stream of Communicating.
    As long as we have no Satilite/power drop-outs we are winning.
    Please can some-one start up a Maori totally owned Voda Communications Bizzo, so we get discounted benefits… lols. Thanks for investigations Dee.

    Hei kona Tessina.

  3. What a lot tiko get off the couch the mobile,& computer go to noho marae hapu & Iwi sports events like
    Tuhoe ahurei,Matatini kohanga reo manu korero ngakura motu kapahaka Uni reports,yak! Kia ora

    1. Your comment makes no sense kare!

      The whole point of this is so the researcher can look into how social media sites are impacting on how we as maaori communicate with each other in todays present day and age! Its obviously the survey is to look into how we as maaori are using technology to communicate, compared to that of old, such as kanohi ki te kanohi. It’s no good trying to put down or degrade someones hard mahi e hoa! And this waahine must know a bit if she is at PhD level too!

      1. Tautoko Ruupene, Kia ora!! It takes a hell of a lot to get to PhD level and the more Maori we have doing THAT (along with ahurei, Matatini, hakinakina) the better! This is great research!
