El Tumauki

HE MIHI maioha tenei ki a koutou katoa. Kua timata ngā whakangāhau mō te wiki o Te Reo Māori. Hei whakanui i tēnei wiki whakahirahira ka tū a Ngai Tauira i te “Whakataetae Pātaitai mō Te Wiki o Te Reo” me te “Tautohetohe” i waenganui i ngā pūkenga me ngā tauira. Nau mai, haere mai ki te whakarongo ki ēnei tautohetohe i roto i Te Reo Māori. Kei te āta whakarite a Ngai Tauira me Weltec mō te hui e kīia nei ko Te Huinga (National Māori Tertiary Students Conference). Ka tū taua hui ki te Whare Wānanga o Te Ūpoko o te Ika a Māui ā te Hereturikōkā. I roto i te ao tōrangapū i puta mai te ripoata a te UN Special Rapporteur, te Kōwhiringa Māori mō te pōti, te ‘Principles of the Treaty of Waitangi Deletion Bill’, me ngā mahi mō te Hīkoi ki te Whare Pāremata kia whakahoki i te Manaaki Tauira me te kaupapa nei te ‘Student Debt’.

Kātahi anō kua hoki mai ngā kōrero o Ngai Tauira ki ngā whārangi o Salient. Kua whakakahangia ngā hononga tawhito o Ngai Tauira, ā, kua puta mai ētehi hononga hou i waenganui i a Ngai Tauira me te Victoria Broadcasting Club me te reo irirangi o Te Ūpoko o te Ika. I ngā wiki e heke mai nei ka timata te whakapāho o Ngai Tauira (pānuitia te tuhinga “Ngai Tauira on Air”). He ara pai tēnei mā o mātou tauira e ako ana i ngā akoranga pāho hei tipu haere i tō rātou mātauranga.

Kei te mahi tonu a Ngai Tauira ki te whiwhi i te tūranga o te “Incorporated Society” ēngari kua tino uaua tēnei mahi i tēnei tau. I tū te SGM i te marama o Haratua, hēoi, i tae mai 15 ngā tauira anake. Ko te tumanako ka taea e te kaiwhakahaere hou o Ngai Tauira ki te mau tonu te mahi nei kia tū tētehi SGM ano i mua i te mutunga o tēnei tau. Ka tū ngā pōti mō te kaiwhakahaere hou o Ngai Tauira ā te wiki e heke mai nei, ā, i tēnei wā kua puta mai ko wai kei te tū mō ēnei tūranga. He tari hou, he kaiwhakahaere hou – ka mau te wehi! He tino mīharo ki ahau āku mahi Tumuaki me te mahi o te kaiwhakahaere i te tau kua pāhure ake nei. Kei te tino hiahia au ki te kite i te kaiwhakahaere hou me o rātou wawata mō ngā tauira Māori.

Hei aha aku kōrero tautoko ki te Tumuaki hou? Hīkoi te kōrero!

Kei te pirangi ahau ki te tuku mihi atu ki te kaiwhakahaere o Ngai Tauira mō rātou mahi i tēnei tau. Ki a Tu Temara, Rangimiria Ihakara, Michelle Bartlett, Matt Gifford, Joanne Chell, Ren Simmiss, Christine Rapana, Renae Te Ringa Wetere rātou ko Jasmine Bell-Simpson. Me tuku mihi hoki ki a Te Aira Nyman rāua ko LeRoy Crawford mō ta rāua pukumahi mō ngā tauira hoki. Nō reira koutou, “I thank you once, I thank you twice, I thank you thrice!

In Which a Boy Leaves

: - SPONSORED - I’ve always been a fairly lucky kid. I essentially lucked out at birth, being born white, male, heterosexual, to a well off family. My life was never going to be particularly hard. And so my tale begins, with another stroke of sheer luck. After my girlfriend sugge
