Hello. My name is Hannah Tiniteila Tetini-Luatutu. Haumata Timoteo Hewett is the name of my grandmother from Rakahanga. Cramand Teaukura Hewett is the name of my grandfather from Aitutaki. I am 13 years old. I have 2 sisters and 1 brother. I go to Point England School. I'm Cook Island Nuiean, Samoan and Tongan. My teachers name is Andrea Tele'a. I am a year 8.
Kia Orana, so this week is a very very special week for us Cook Islanders because it is Cook Island language week, this year also marks the 50th year anniversary of the Cook Islands self governance. I will be posting a blog for the next few days about Cook Island Language Week. The Theme for this year is, "To tatou reo tupuna e korona ia no to tatou matakeinanga" which means "Our language is a crowning glory of our community". My mum and I were looking through some Cook Island websites, and spotted this video out. I thought I'd share it with you folks to watch and see what the Cook Islands looks and feels like.
