Stacey Morrison (Te Arawa, Ngai Tāhu) is a radio and television broadcaster whose projects have spanned 25 years. She is also a mama to three young tamariki who have been brought up with te reo Māori as their mother tongue. Stacey herself didn’t learn to speak Māori until she was an adult. It required a lot of research, determination, wonderful mentors and the support of a community to achieve her goal of becoming fluent by the time her children were born. As a winner of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori Champion Award in 2016 and a graduate of Te Panekiretanga o te Reo (the Institute of Excellence in Māori Language), Stacey loves encouraging the learning and use of our country’s beautiful native language.


The My First Words in Māori Flashcards are also available for purchase in store at Wellington Museum.
