Te Kupu o te Wiki – The Word of the Week

Kia ora. To celebrate Te Reo Māori we are publishing kupu (words) and whakataukī (proverbs).

Kīwaha (colloquialism)

E mea ana koe
You bet

Kupu (word)


Kei ngā rangi ngā manu e rere ana.
The birds are in the sky flying about.


He manako te koura i kore ai.
There are no crayfish as you set your heart on them.

This is similar to not putting all your eggs in one basket. You could also consider this as Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched.
