From time to time I find my macrons suddenly stop working.
This is almost certainly because I have accidentally hit the Windows key + space bar, which is the shortcut to switch the keyboard input method from the Māori keyboard that I usually use, back to the US keyboard.
To correct this:
Press Windows key + space bar to switch it back
1. Click the keyboard input language button, located at the far right end of your taskbar (in the bottom right corner of your monitor/screen).
It looks like this:
2. Then click English (New Zealand) Maori keyboard.

Relationships are important. The idea of AU (I) is more than being individualistic, rather it is also the strength of connection and working as a collective found in whakawhanAUngatanga. Whakawhanaungatanga is the act of and is the process of establishing links, making connections and relating to the people one meets by identifying in culturally appropriate ways, whakapapa linkages, past heritages, points of engagement, or other relationships.
In a metaphoric sense, Mead (2003) asserts that whanaungatanga reaches beyond actual whakapapa relationships and includes relationships to people who are not kin but who, through shared experiences, feel and act as kin.
Exploring this further, this session looks at your self-identified attributes around whanaungatanga to identify touch points and how this could be applied positively at work with peers or with ākonga (students) for example. This will be undertaken through exercises and pūrakau (stories).
E ngā manu taki, e ngā manu tāiko o Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha, tēnā koutou.
Kua takoto anō tēnei mānuka ki a tātou i tēnei wiki, e Te Wiki o te Reo Māori – nau mai, tauti mai! Ka hiki tātou i tēnei wero kia rere te reo ki ngā kokonga katoa o tēnei whare wānanga. Nā reira e te whānau whānui o UC, hīkina te mānuka, tukua te reo Māori kia hāro ki tōna keokeonga! Karawhiua!
Greetings to everyone here at UC.
Māori Language Week is back and so too is the opportunity for us all to use, embrace and value te reo Māori in all that we do. Over this next week I am encouraging all of you to welcome this challenge by getting involved and participating in some of the great reo Māori events and initiatives which will be taking place here on campus. Take up the challenge and support the use of te reo Māori so that it will soar across all areas of our university! Go for it!
Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha will celebrate Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, from 11 to 16 Rima (September). The theme this year is Kia kaha te reo Māori , let the Māori language be strong. This supports the intent of the new partnerships for te reo Māori revitalisation between the Crown and Māori under the new Māori Language Act 2016. Read the programme here>
Te Wiki o te Reo Māori is one week of our year where we can show how we support and value the Māori language here at UC by using the reo we have while supporting others to do the same. Don’t be shy – get involved and make the most of the range of reo Māori activities and events happening across our campus this week – kia kaha te reo Māori!
Beyond Te Wiki o te Reo Māori there are many other ways that you can further develop your Māori language skills and deepen your bicultural competence and confidence here at UC, by enrolling to complete a Te Reo Māori course at Aotahi or registering to take part in the Tangata Tū, Tangata Ora and Te Reo Māori for the Workplace workshops.
Whilst Te Wiki o te Reo Māori provides us with the opportunity to support the value of the Māori language in everything we do, the challenge for us all is to continue using what we have – everyday – on an ongoing basis.
