About the Teacher:

Austin Haynes was born in Aotearoa New Zealand, growing up between Ōtākou (Otago) and Wurundjeri Country in Australia. He is Pākehā (New Zealander of European descent) and his ancestors came to Aotearoa from the 1850s onwards from Scotland (MacLabhrainn and Hay Clans), Ireland, and Austria. Austin began his reo journey with Learn Māori Abroad in 2020. He was initially inspired by several of his ancestors who had immersed themselves in te reo Māori and te ao Māori. Austin quickly fell in love with te reo and is passionate about sharing what he has learned with others on their own haerenga (journeys).

Austin is also an opera singer and now lives in Rānana (London). He is currently studying for a Masters degree in Literature, for which he is researching the history of te reo Māori translations of English language literature from Shakespeare to folksongs. Austin is a poet and writes in both English and te reo Māori. He hopes one day to be able to write poetry in Scottish Gaelic, the indigenous language of many of his ancestors, and to help create a world where te reo Māori and other indigenous languages are spoken, written and celebrated everywhere!
