Lasting Legacy - Maori Flutes

Wonderings About Maori Flutes

For this particular piece of learning Voyagers explored the idea of Maori flutes as a lasting legacy. The exploration was based on a series of questions created by the children. Our questions start with ‘I wonder…’

  • I wonder how I could make a Maori flute?
  • I wonder how people have made them and from what things?
  • I wonder what it would look like and sound like?
  • I wonder if we could get music to come out of it?
  • I wonder if you have to be a Maori person to play a Maori flute?

Maori flutes are an instrument that several of the children were intrigued with.
