Kia ora koutou, welcome to the website for Kupu Hou, an online project to encourage and excite New Zealanders about learning Te Reo Māori. Kupu Hou literally translates as new (hou) words (kupu); and reflects our kaupapa – to help people enlarge their vocabulary, one word at a time. Why? We believe that through an understanding of the structure and composition of kupu, people will gain an appreciation for the knowledge embedded in Te Ao Māori (the Māori world): geographic, historical, metaphoric and poetic. Māori ways of thinking are reflected through the language. As you learn the kupu you will also be encountering Māori philosophies – about life, the universe and everything.
We encourage you to follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, try one of our quizzes and share our content with your friends and whānau.

Great morning for #Matariki views, this is last tweeted pic for today taken a bit earlier (0605NZT) than the others. It has Matariki and Matakāheru (hyades) closer to the horizon with the orange-giant star Taumata-Kuku (aldebaran) at the bottom. Ka rawe tēnei ata! pic.twitter.com/gKbpI4BgJr
