(Rotoruas Mud and Maori Culture, 2011) Hongi – the unique and very sacred Maori physical embrace where the visitors and hosts become one. “The hongi is the traditional greeting(Maori Culture in NZ, 2011) of nose pressing. It is the exchange of the ha, or breath of life… This greeting creates the visitor at one with the tangata whenua (hosts)”. “The most sacred part of the Maori is the face and the head. When you make contact with another human, it’s the embracing, the light touching of the noses. Because you’re now dealing with the most sacred part of the person. It’s the essence of life to mankind. (Haymond, 2008)
  13. 13. Gender Roles and Clothes Modern and Traditional Nathaniel
  14. 14.  One area where men have low representation is in early childhood education (ECE). In 2010, there were 19,901 early childhood teachers in New Zealand, only 349 (1.75%) of whom were men. Similar to ECE, nursing is another non traditional role where men are the minority. Only 7.76% of New Zealand nurses are male. Men are deterred from the nursing profession for similar reasons that they are deterred from ECE including; believing others would see them as unmanly, having limited career options and being poorly paid. Concerted effort is required to recruit more men in nursing and to break gendered stereotypes.
  15. 15. Gender roles The Modern Apprenticeship Scheme aims to increase the number of young people in industry training. The traditional under-representation of women in non- traditional work represents a significant opportunity for improved female participation and increased diversity in the Modern Apprenticeship Scheme. However it has failed to deliver gender equality to date. In 2010, there were 11,926 modern apprentices87. Female participants accounted for 12.4% but this is almost entirely due to the inclusion of hairdressing in the modern apprenticeship scheme. Without hairdressing the women’s participation rate drops to 8.4%.
  16. 16. clothing.htmlClothing from the past A knee long kilt like garment held by a waistband called puipui. Men had the more ornate design on their waistband with geometric patterns in black and white opposing the plain belt of the woman’s one. A cloak that was worn around the shoulders.

A Korowai was a cloak decorated with tassles and bird feathers.
  17. 17. Clothing in the present In keeping with New Zealands relaxed lifestyle, dress is informal on mostoccasions.

  19. 19. New-Zealand-locum-tenens Moko is a type of art form used my the Maori people of New Zealand.The Maori, being the natives to the New Zealand land. This type of art goesfar back. Ta Moko is a tattoo; not just any tattoo, it is applied by chiseling itinto the skin as opposed to normal tattoos using a needle. Ta Moko for mencan be anywhere on the body, but for women it is primarily on the lips andface. Wiki (2011) J.M. Wilson (2003). The Maori people have tribes, by using theTa Moko, one could communicate which tribe they belonged to and theirplace in the tribe such as their social standing. Ta Moko was used to conveysomeone’s ancestry. As time has gone on the use of Ta Moko’s has declined,as has the ability to read someone’s Ta Moko. The Maori are not required toget Ta Moko’s, they get them because they choose to. The symbols anddesigns on their tattoos are unique to them. If you can read someone’s TaMoko you can learn a lot about them, who they are, and where they camefrom. The Maori obviously are very proud of their heritage or they wouldnot chose to adorn their bodies with it. Many people in our culture are very cautious around those whowould have tattoos all over their bodies, especially their face. “Americansplace an undue emphasis on looks” (p.95. Understanding NonverbalMessages: Appearance. Blue Book). Having a lot of tattoos here in Americacan sometimes be tied to bikers and criminals, this kind of stereotypingwould make it hard for us to communicate with the Maori, but byunderstanding their culture and the purpose behind the Ta Moko we cancommunicate with less judgment and more acceptance.
  20. 20. Anyone who has seen a movie based inEurope or Australia knows that English hassome different dialects. The same is truefor the English spoken in New Zealand. Eventhough we speak the same language as NewZealanders the fact that we speak adifferent dialect would make it difficultfor us to understand some of the thingsthey say. The term for the English used byNew Zealanders is called “Kiwi Slang”. Anexample of some confusion that we wouldfind by the language is terms like “brassedoff” meaning annoyed, another would be“yonks” meaning forever. What might soundweird to us, makes complete sense to them.Our biggest asset in communication isawareness. Do your research beforetraveling to another country, you can easilylook up Kiwi Slang and print out a guide ofthe different words and their meaning tohelp you out in communicating with NewZealanders. By being aware of thesedifferences in our language we can helpbridge the gap of communication.

  24. 24. A way to interact and communicate with the Maori culture, is to attend a Hangi, which is a way of cooking food (Kai is the Maori word for food) and a social occasion to share with friends and family. Hangi is a special way of cooking food under the ground using red hot rocks and steam. Rocks or bricks are heated on a pile of burning wood. When the rocks are hot they need to be carefully rolled or lifted into a pit in the ground and the wire baskets of food quickly put on top. The basket is then covered with wet sheets and the wet sheets get covered with wet sacks. Then the sacks are covered with dirt. The water from the wet cloths turns into steam through the heat of the rocks, the steam can’t escape through the dirt so it steam cooks the food. The meat is put in the basket first basket (chicken, fish, shellfish, pork and lamb), the veggies on top (kumara (purple potatoes), pumpkin, and corn on the cob and herbs and spices. You can also add the desert of steam pudding in the basketSeven hours later you open the box and enjoy the succulent meat and vegetables that taste wonderful after being steamed inthe earth, and also get to know new friends and old friends

  26. 26. Two special Holidays that are only celebrated in New Zealand are: AnzacDay and Waitangi DayAnzac DayHeld on Apirl 25 is similar to our Veterans Day. It is to commemoratethose who died in the service of their country and to honor thoseservicemen and women who returned. This originated from theanniversary of the landing of the Australian and New Zealand ArmyCorps at Gallipoli in 1915. On the first anniversary of that landing services were held throughoutthe country in remembrance of the 2,721 New Zealand soldiers who diedduring the eight-month Gallipoli Campaign. Since 1916 Anzac Day hasevolved to the observance we know today.They even have a special cookie called an Anzac Biscuit (cookie).Waitangi DayHeld on February 6 February to commemorate the signing of NewZealands founding document - the Treaty of Waitangi - in 1840. Thisholiday was first declared in 1974, and has grown in significance for allNew Zealanders through the Māori renaissance that has fostered betterunderstanding of the Treaty’s ramifications. Official celebrations areheld at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in the Bay of Islands, Northland,but there are also many other events throughout the country.
