It’s all about manaakitanga (hospitality) on Good Morning’s Te Wiki o te Reo Maori!
On Monday, the Good Morning team’s in Christchurch and Lyttelton with Brendon and Matai.
Brendan and Sarah are hosted by Rapaki marae and Nga Hau e Wha marae, discovering some of the many heartfelt stories of compassion and caring.
They also chat with the Dean of Canterbury, Peter Beck and Bishop Victoria Matthews about their efforts in caring for the community as they recover from the earthquakes.
