Native American Community Academy Visit Māori in New Zealand

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown June 4th, 2015 Last Updated on: June 4th, 2015

Just wonderful to see these Indigenous cultures come together! Maori news service Te Karere TVNZ reports to us about a meeting between Native American Community Academy and their Māori sister schools in New Zealand.

They've flown all the way from Albuquerque, New Mexico, in search of language revitalization schemes and relationship building between native cultures. The Native American Community Academy have held a long relationship between Māori since the early 2000's – today they've landed with a whole new fleet of students eager to learn and experience off Māori.

What an amazing experience for these students! I hope a lot of great knowledge and insight was exchanged.

The Native American Community Academy (NACA) is a public charter school in Albuquerque, New Mexico that serves 6th-12th grade students. For more information you can visit them at http://www.nacaschool.org/.
