Celebrating Cook Islands Language Week 2020 by sharing the words of some amazing Cook Islanders... writers from the past, and students + scholars from today.
As Mama Marjorie Crocombe said in the Pacific literary journal 'Mana' back in 1974, "The Canoe is Afloat!" This 'Bonus' language week episode accompanies four longer podcast episodes that feature a different Cook Islands scholar (based in Tokoroa, Wellington, Dunedin and Rarotonga) who has worked with Kuki 'Airani writing as part of the 'Writing the New World' project.
