Benefits

Whakataukī are commonly referred to as proverbs/ sayings - but they often open the door to appreciating many parts of te ao Māori.  They can be applied in many settings, in speeches, affirmations, sharing stories, learning places etc. They most often have very deep meaning beyond a simple message or saying, especially in relation to significant events, places or people.  On a day to day basis, they can be used as affirmations or assisting in ones ongoing reo journey. 

Whakataukī are proverbs/ sayings etc where the original speaker/ author/ composer is not known, whereas Whakatauākī can be attributed to the original source. 

We have re-designed and expanded our sets of Whakataukī /Whakatauākī cards so they may be purchased fully (set of 24 cards in total - 2 different colours), or in smaller sets of 6 kāri / cards with a common theme.

Ātaahua

The Rangi and Papa cards are beautiful and I appreciate having this collection of many cherished whakatauki and whakatauāki in one place and in this format. My one wish would be that the cards were better protected to endure high use and shuffling. Ngā mihi.

Kari Whakataukī

Loved the cards and using them already. It would be helpful to know where or who the kōrero originated from?

Kia ora Merlene, Whakataukī are proverbs/ sayings etc where the original speaker/ author/ composer is not known, whereas Whakatauākī can be attributed to the original source. In the card set if the person is known it is stated, if not, it is blank - many of well known Whakataukī are very old, it is unknown the original source. Thanks for your feedback
