Whakataukī are commonly referred to as proverbs/ sayings - but they often open the door to appreciating many parts of te ao Māori. 

They can be applied in many settings, in speeches, affirmations, sharing stories, learning places etc. They most often have very deep meaning beyond a simple message or saying, especially in relation to significant events, places or people. 

On a day to day basis, they can be used as affirmations or assisting in ones ongoing reo journey. 

Whakataukī are proverbs/ sayings etc where the original speaker/ author/ composer is not known, whereas Whakatauākī can be attributed to the original source.
