ABC WEdnesday: K for Kiwi
The Kiwi, the iconic bird of New Zealand. It doesn't fly, it stays in the dark, but the New Zealanders have affectionately called themselves Kiwis.
Roger is right, it is not a real Kiwi. I bought it for my students. Real Kiwis are protected and I can't keep one in my classroom.
At one stage, people were considered Kiwis who were born in New Zealand. Now, they use it as a NZ citizen. I teach immigrant kids, and I get a lot of arguments ," You are not a Kiwi."
