Why is it so important to keep oral story telling alive?

Maori storytellers believe these stories have been forgotten and lost in dust, they are trying to keep their culture, beliefs and language alive for tomorrow.

Today, Nazella and I worked collaboratively making a 25 word summary based on the question: Why is it so important to keep oral story telling alive? We watched YouTube videos and looked for the main message in the videos. Then we made our 25 word summary, it was difficult because we couldn't add everything inside the summary. To get around this problem, we had a few learning conversations which helped us agree and disagree.

How Maui slowed down the sun - Myths and Legends

Myths and legends has been our focus this week. Nazella and I have been looking at the myth of how Maui slowed down the sun. Nazella and I made a Storyboard from one of the scenes from the myth. It was difficult to find objects that could match with the scene because they were modern items.
