Kia ora koutou katoa,
Ako Māori was a series of community nightclasses in Te Reo Māori run by Regan Stokes, Damien Taylor, Joshua Toki and Jamie Stevenson in Ōtautahi Christchurch, Aotearoa New Zealand. They are not running anymore but the resources are available on the Course Content page above. The courses were each 4 weeks in length, with the introductory course Ako Tuatahi (First Learning) and then Ako Tuarua (Second Learning) and Ako Tuatoru (Third Learning).
In January 2015 National Radio broadcast a talk I gave about my experience and philosophy around learning and teaching te reo Māori which can be heard here (this is a much better version of the live Pecha Kucha talk I gave in early 2014 which can be heard here). In 2014 The Press published an article on the Ako courses which can be read here.
See the Ngā Kaupapa page for course information; if you are interested in attending any of the courses please fill out the relevant form on that page so I can get an idea of attendance numbers. Lesson content/resources can be found at the Ngā Kiko page. There is also a list of recommended reading and viewing for anyone wanting to learn more about Māori culture/history/tikanga here.
