I remember the time, that we just came down from the ski field and we were sitting on a bench about to eat lunch. We saw a green kea peeking on dad,s car tyres. Dad started going wild, he ran up to the car and waved his arms and shouted to shoo it away. I started laughing and my little brother spilt his juice and started to whine.
What makes us kiwi? Well what does make us kiwi is nature, sport, food and of course our history.
Don't you just love nature? Well, if you don’t you should and if you do love nature which I'm sure you do, you should know about plants to, like the silver fern. The silver fern makes us kiwi because it is our symbol and it is unique like us Kiwis. Speaking of silver ferns, what about our silver fern netball? It is also the symbol of the All Blacks, our pride in rugby.
There is also our sports that makes us Kiwi like our basketball team, the NZ Breakers and our rugby the All Blacks also our netball team they all have great success. Also in the Olympics we have had heaps of success for rowing , shot put and many other sports we are also doing good in the american cup.So you see. Sports must make us Kiwi.
Our food? What could we do without it? Our bbq’s no one can cook like a kiwi. We do bbq everywhere. In the backyard ,beach, park, car parks.We like our sausages but where would we be without desert. Well luckily, we have our pavlova with nice kiwi fruit on top. That must make us Kiwi!
How about we end it with history always a boring lesson! History is always going to be a big part of us kiwi’s. The maoris made us kiwi because they are our ancestors. Maori also added myths and legends to our world like their tikis. There is also their culture like the haka and the waiata. The Maori are what makes us Kiwi.
So, what makes us also Kiwi is: our awesome nature, our excellent sport teams, our lovely food and of course our history.
Today that kea that hassled our car is probably terrorizing tour buses, welcoming people to New Zealand. So E noho ra (goodbye).
