BONUS episode // Qiane Matata-Sipu with Stacey Morrison


As a 35 year old Māori woman some of my greatest pain, sadness, whakamā and frustration comes from my journey with te reo. Like many, I didn't grow up with te reo Māori as my first language and over the years I have searched for it in school, at night classes, through wānanga and with whānau.  Recently I have yet again opened the books to continue my efforts in becoming fluent in my own language. Following on from the kōrero with NUKU //063 Stacey Morrison, she flips the microphone on me to share a bit about my challenges, celebrations and expectations with te reo Māori and why my yearning for my reo is stronger now than it has ever been.   // Qiane Matata-Sipu

//063 Stacey Morrison


Most of us know NUKU //063 through her extensive career on our screens and airwaves. Stacey Morrison (Ngāi Tahu, Te Arawa) is a māmā, writer, facilitator and tutor. She is a veteran broadcaster, television host and consultant. She is also a passionate champion of te reo Māori and is an ambassador for the breast cancer foundation. While Stacey has raised her three tamariki with te reo Māori as their first language, she herself did not learn until adulthood. It was in fact, her third language. In this episode we hear personal stories of her upbringing and losing her māmā to breast cancer at a young age. We talk about language and the ways we can incorporate te reo into our everyday lives and, we talk about the realities of being an indigenous woman today and honouring our puku.

Stacey Morrison - Not just about te reo Māori (#7)

Paperback Guerrillas

“I’ve had the full spectrum from being accused of being too plastic to being criticised for being too elite. So come at me bro.” — StaceyStacey Morrison (Ngāi tahu, Te Arawa) is a māmā of three and is a taonga of TV and radio. She's a fierce advocate for te reo Māori and it's revitalisation across all of those platforms and more. She’s appeared on and hosted some of our most important TV shows from Mai Time, to It’s in the bag, and a bunch of radio, including her current gig on The Hits. Alongside her husband Scotty Morrison she co-authored Māori at Home as well as her own book My First Words in Māori.We talk about getting to the point of doing the mahi that she loves, her early career, learning te reo Māori on TV in front of Aotearoa, and the changes she’s seen in the attitudes toward Māori in TV and radio. She explains some of the challenges of being a mama in the public eye, being middle class, and being comfortable with not needing to be a struggling artist. Stacey gives her whakaaro on what te reo means and doesn’t mean when it comes to being Māori, the different experiences her own children have of Aotearoa and the struggle of identity that many Māori face. We recorded this kōrero during lockdown level 3, so Stacey is at home with her (large) mirumiru, and they feature now and then, as do mine. Stacey isn’t just an author and celebrity. I mentioned in this post on Patreon that this was quite an intimidating interview for myself and there were plenty of cringe moments I had to live through twice while editing where I stumbled my way through to the next question, but Stacey carried the kōrero so well I hope you hardly notice them… plus I edited a bunch out to make me sound like a better host than I really am! Anyway, this was one of the most inspiring and educational kōrero so far for me. I think you’ll really like it.PeraHana Tapiata / Maori Mermaid / Nuku Women / Maimoa Music/ E-Tangata/ Brene Brown/ Mauri Ora Book/ M3 Mindfulness/ He Kupu Tuku Iho bookSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/paperbackguerrillas)
