About the Authors

He holds a Master’s degree (Education), is working towards his PhD, and has been an Adjunct Professor and the Director of Maori Student and Community Engagement at Auckland’s Unitec Institute of Technology. In 2017, he adopted a new role at Massey University’s Te Putahi-a-Toi (School of Maori Art, Knowledge and Education), working alongside his wife Stacey in a strategic, advocacy and lecturing capacity.

They live in Auckland with their three children Hawaiki, Kurawaka and Maiana.

Stacey Morrison

Stacey Morrison (Te Arawa, Ngai Tahu) is a radio and TV broadcaster whose projects have spanned 25 years. She is also a mama to three young tamariki who have been brought up with te reo Maori as their mother tongue. Stacey herself didn’t learn to speak Maori until she was an adult. It required a lot of research, determination, wonderful mentors and the support of a community to achieve her goal of becoming fluent by the time her children were born. Stacey and her husband Scotty wrote Maori at Home to help other families use te reo in everyday settings, and they both work with many groups and families to build Maori-language friendships and community for whanau. Stacey has also been an advisor on pre-schooler and children’s TV shows, which, along with her experiences with her own children, has helped her identify the words children pick up early in their language learning. As a winner of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Maori Champion Award in 2016 and a graduate of Te Panekiretanga o te Reo (the Institute of Excellence in Maori Language), Stacey loves encouraging the learning and use of our country’s beautiful native language.
