"Mana" is the Maori word for "power".
well guess what the Maori word for “women” is. “Mana Wahine”
Power is inherent in their concept of women and I think that’s pretty darn cool.
uh nah the word for woman is just wahine, not mana wahine
I think it’s both, a friend of mine is doing a dance show in New Zealand called Mana Wahine all about the power within women and I asked her and she said it was right, but I could be wrong!
as someone who is māori, i’m telling you that the word for woman is wahine
mana wahine is the power/kaha within a wahine/wahine toa
also power dosent necessarily mean mana, right.. What I mean is John Key would have power but I wouldn’t say he has mana… Like I’m not Maori but for I know there’s similar expressions in other Pasifika cultures.. I’m not explaining it well but Pasifika mana is complex
*this one black guy says its ok so cultural appropriation isn’t an issue anymore*
