Ko ___________Eric_____________ tōku ingoa. My name is …

For this activity I had to write a my own Pepeha. I think that it was really hard because I have no Maori blood in me but it is fun writing what I relate to.


  1. Kia Ora Eric,

    I am so glad to hear you enjoyed writing your pepeha! That puts a big smile on my face :) I would love to travel to Samoa one day. It looks like such a beautiful Island! Do you get to travel there much yourself?

    Ko Rumginae ahau. I am from Rumginae which is a small place in Papua New Guinea. That is where I was born. So I was lucky and got to live in a village environment as I was growing up.

    If you’re feeling brave, maybe you could post a short video of yourself presenting your pepeha out loud. No pressure though! If you don’t want to that is no worries at all :)

    Keep up the great work Eric, I look forward to reading more of your blog posts!

    Cadence :)

  2. Hello Eric, Well done for completing this task.
    This was my favuoite part of the summer learning Jounrey because further that I like google translate. I used translate to use it for my pepeha.

    Well done

  3. Hi Eric
