Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori: Greetings and farewells

Monday 27th July 2015

First impressions are key. Here are a few ways to greet someone in Māori.

Mōrena - good morning

Ka kite āpōpō - see you tomorrow

A tōnā wā e hoa - later man/catch you later

Kei te pēhea koe e hoa? - how’s it going mate?

Aha te ake? - what’s up?

Kia ora e hine - hey babe

Kia ora e te parata - hey bro
