What does Te Anau mean in Maori?
Some think it is the name of a Maori chief who lived in the area; others believe it is a shortened form of Te Ana-au, meaning "cave of swirling water current" (since there are such caves on the lakeshore).

"Te" means "you" or "your" it depends on the sentence and the way it is used. If you can give me an example, I can differentiate the two meanings for you.
It means 'ordinary' or 'natural' .. I te reo Maori - ko te tikanga o te kupu, ko te Maori.
There is no specific Maori meaning for the word 'kiwi'. The namecomes from the call of the kiwi, a high-pitched "keee-weee" sound.
'Of'. Ngati Kahungunu (descendant of Kahungunu). Te whare o Tama - the house of Tama.. Te ngeru a Mere - the cat of Mere.
People. Iwi means People. 'E' is what you start a sentence with when referring to a person. E.g. e hine (girl), e Mere (Mary).. Note: This only happens with words of two syllables or less. The 'e' is not spoken if the word has three or more syllables. E.g. Rawiri (David), Katarina (Katherine).. Th…e 'e' at the end of the phrase is a 'throw in'. Similiar to oi! eh! and does not need to be spoken although it is found in songs and poems for 'flow'. (MORE)

The word 'mÄori' (the macron over the 'a' denoting a long vowel sound or else spelt 'maaori' to again ensure correct pronounciation) simply means: 1. (stative) be native, indigenous, normal, usual, natural, common, fresh (of water), belonging to Aotearoa/New Zealand, freely, without restraint…, without ceremony, clear, intelligible. 2. (noun) aboriginal inhabitant. When asked - "Ko wai koe? Who are you? He aha kÄ koe? What race are you?" - the answer came back as - "He MÄori ahau! I am indigenous! " - alluding to the fact that the person who posed the question did not look like anyone they had seen before! (MORE)

Get the audience in suspense, or excitement. Start with saying something like. a place that would be dark, except for the light emanating from small clusters on the walls. A place that living lamps call home. The Te Anau glow worm caves are truly a wonder. . Sorry. I'm not the public speaking type…, but I listen to speeches, and the only ones that I like are the ones that grab me and captivate me from the start.. Good luck! (MORE)
The first section is already answered by others. 'Ma te Atua e manaaki' means 'May God cherish and take care of you". The second part is a very confused use of Maori, which is unclear and not gramatical. It doesn't relate at all to the first part of the phrase. The 'e' is usually used as a gramatica…l element for a sentence but here it sits with no clear role. 'Ka pai wahine' loosely means 'good women' (not clear if plural or singular). Note, in English you could try to make some interesting connections to the two phrases above but I assure you that in the Maori language those connections are clearly not being made. (MORE)
The translation I have seen is as follows: Matai - Watching or gazing intently at the sea.
Probably cannot help you out much. Canberra is an Aboriginal word meaning "meeting place" in English.
Roto has two meanings. The first is 'lake'. The second is referring to the inside or interior of something.
In which context, please? Because it can translate as 'that (specific) canoe', but there are a lot of less literal (and probably more relevant) alternatives.
Because Te reo Maori is a language!! And without it maori people wouldn't be able to talk!!
Brave - as in the old Maori proverb Kia kaha, Kia Maia Kia manawanui 'Be strong, be brave, be steadfast'

Facial tattos in maori culture are used to denote rank within a tribe and what tribe you are from.
Aria in modern Maori means. . . "Aria" as in the solo vocal piece, often with musical accompaniment. AriÄ has other meanings = likeness, resemblance, notion, idea, concept, theory, feeling, the visible material emblem of an atua . The "AriÄ" however were symbols [picto-graphs] which represe…nted NgÄ Atua [the deities], the elements [earth, air, fire, water etc..] trees [totara etc.] and a many other things. Traditionally, AriÄ were used only by Tohunga [priests, shamans, holy-men/women] It is believed, theorised perhaps, that if the AriÄ was allowed to evolve it could have become a written language, similar in concept to Chinese characters. Perhaps if European contact wasn't for another hundred years, this could have become a reality. Sadly, there is next to no information about the AriÄ in libraries and even less on line. (MORE)
Iwi Maori means the Maori Tribes. There are many 'tribes' of people in NZ who descend from a common ancestor and/or come from a common waka (one of the canoes which brought the original maori to NZ from their homeland - Hawaiiki).

A Turehu is a term which is not commonly used nowadays due to the large mixing of races. However in the olden days to maori when a child who is born relatively fair compared to the rest of the whanau (family), he/she is called a Turehu because there is no explanation for his pale appearance. He/she …will be more fair-skinned or fair-haired than the others and may even have blue/green eyes, and often this trait runs in families - some whanau having one turehu in each generation or so. The legends say that a Turehu is descended from Patupaiarehe (fairy folk). Another name for Turehu is 'Waka Blonde', waka being the canoes on which the maori sailed to NZ on from their place of origin. (MORE)
E noho ra (written as three separate words) means goodbye to someone you are leaving.

A marae is like a church or a town hall in aotearoa (new Zealand) although not so much important now as before the pÄkihÄ came to nz. It is tapu (sacride). PÄkihÄ are not aloud on the marea with out first being welcomed onto it which is a big prosese which I won't go into. The word marae… means a place cleared, free of weeds, trees, etc. A marae is a speical place for your iwi. . A Marae however, unlike a church or town hall, often has more than one building. It will often have a whare, or sleeping room, with photos of the ancestors on the walls and beautiful handwork in the form of woven panels on the walls. Then there is usually a large hall where those who belong to that Marae and their guests may eat and food may be prepared. A Marae could be almost like a small village in a way and in some parts of New Zealand it is still used as such. More often it is a place where those who belong to the same Iwi - ie Family or tribe or large extended family, may gather for meetings or celebrations or Funerals (Tangi) and also a place where they can extend hospitality to visitors from out of Town. There is indeed quite a ceremony involved in being 'welcomed on to the Marae' - even for Maori themselves. This process involves singing (Karakia) and 'calling' the visitors on to the grounds of the Marae. It is a very stirring ceremony. (MORE)
