Tuesday's Whakatauki



Kaua e mate wheke mate ururoa.

Don't die like an octopus, die like a hammerhead shark.

Octopus are renown for their lack of resistance when being captured, however a hammerhead shark will fight bitterly to the end, to the point that when you fillet it fresh, its meat quivers. Commonly used to encourage someone not to give up, no matter how hard the struggle is.

  1. Wow, I know this post this old but quality work is timeless. That was great pronunciation and I liked the way you presented the whakatauki with a visual aid and an audio track. He tino pai tenei mahi kotiro ma! Ka rawe!
