Description

These blocks have been created by Uncle Goose and Wellington artist Johnson Witehira.

Johnson brings together two cultures (Maori & Pakeha) by producing these alphabet blocks that are specially designed to educate children.The printed wooden blocks feature the Te Reo alphabet, alongside traditional carving patterns and figures from six iwi around the country. The figures can be stacked atop one another, like pou on a marae. They are interchanged with tuku tuku patterns and letters.

Maori believe language is the lifeforce of their culture, they even have a saying for it; “Ko te reo te mauri o te mana Maori. Ka ngaro te reo, Ka ngaro taua, pera i te ngaro o te Moa.” If the language is lost, we will perish like the Moa.
