He Raumaharatanga O Te Rua Mahurutanga O Te Tumu Herenga Waka

E NOHO ana rā i te koko o te tipuna whare nei o Te Tumu Herenga Waka ka raumahara ake rā ki te rua mahuru tau i tuwhera ai ōna tatau ki te iti ki te rāhi ki te ngahue tāngata kua ū mai, kua māunu atu ngā waka i runga i ngā waikarekare o te ao hurihuri nei e.

Kā haku ake rā ki te hunga kua tere atu i runga i te tai awatea ki te tauawhi a Hine-nui-te-pō, rātou i whaiwāhi ki te whakaara i ngā poupou o Te Tumu. Ko te tuatahi i takoto te marae nei ko Takirua Shultz, whāea o Tānia tumuaki o Ngai Tauira i ngā tau tata nei, i muri i a ia ko . Te manu karapīpiti a aitua a Te Rangiāhuta Ruka Broughton rāua ko Wiremu Parker, ngā tohunga, ngā pūkenga; te utu nui mō te tipuna whare nei.

Nō muri ko te kuia o Te Whānau o Te Herenga Waka ko Māka Jones, te kaiwhakaaraara i ngā tauira kia mataara, kia whaiwhakaaro nui ki ngā tikanga. Ko tana tungane ko Tā Mōnita Delamere te pou o te Hāhi Ringatū, he kaitautoko i te marae nei, i whai tata i tana tuahine. Ka tere atu ko ngā tauira i puta i konei, a Cissy Paenga, Queenie Penny, a Christine Rereti-Want, a Raniera Higgins raua ko tana kōtiro ko Anihaka, a Moetū Matehe. Ka pāoro ko te reo o te kākā whanui, he tumuaki o Ngai Tauira a Lawrence Tukaki-Milanta. “ E ara rā Lawrence hei taituara mo tō rahi ki te pōhiri i te motu ki Te Huinga kia takatū rā ki ngā kaupapa tauira e!”

Ka tere i muri ko ētahi o ngā hoa mahi ko Nockie Kōpua, kātahi ka hinga i te mata o te pū ko Andrea Branda kaiāwhina ki te rapu kāinga noho mō ngā Tauira. Ōi an ate motu i te hīnangatanga o te manu tīrairaka, o te rūruhi o te reo Māori a Takuta Miria Simpson; hinga kau ana ko te manukura o te wānanga nei ko Winnie Jardine. No nā tata nei ka wahangū ko te hoa mahi ko Harry Hall, taukuri e! I tenei tau ko te kuia tautoko i ngā kaupapa rangahau, i ngā take nui o te wānanga nei ko Ani Delamere.

Takahi atu ana rātou katoa i te ara whānui a Tāne ki te kuia o te matemate-ā-one. Te huhua i tere atu nei ka mau tonu rātou ki te tūārongo o Te Tumu. Ko tātou i muri nei ka whai atu i runga i te tai ahiahi. Tau ārai ki te pō tītoko ki te ao mārama. Tai ahahā, tai ahahā!

HIRINI MOKO MEAD, POU TEMARA, WHATARANGI WINIATA

Ka tuwhera ngā tatau o te whare, i te kei o te waka ko te Ahorangi ko Hirini Moko Mead, i mau tonu iho ki te pupuri, ki te tia i ngā mahi rangahau o Te Tira Whakaemi Kōrero (wāhanga rangahau) me ngā kaupapa ako o Te Tari Māori. Nā te koroua nei me ōna hoa taipakeke i whakaū te āhua o te noho te Whānau o Te Herenga Waka. Ko te mea nui rawa atu ko te manaaki tangata, whai tonu ana i te tauira i ōhākītia mai e Ruka i tana waiata Kaore Taku Raru. Koia rā te wāhi uaua ko te whakatinana i te kaupapa, engari nā runga tonu i te wairua māhaki o te koroua me tana whai whakaaro nui ki ngā tauira Māori i noho penei ai te āhua i tēnei rā; i noho iti tonu ai te utu mo te kai i Ngā Mokopuna. I ēnei marama tonu ia e mīharo ana he kotahi tāra noa iho te pikinga o te utu o ngā tina!

He mea tō mai e ia ki tōna taha, hei pūkenga, hei tohunga hoki mō te marae a Pou Temara. Ko tāna he pupuri i te mauri o te tipuna whare nei. Ko te ako me te whakatauira i ngā tikanga katoa o te Ao Māori, o Rongomaraeroa hoki. He maha ngā wā i tutū ai te puehu, i mau tonu te mana me te mauri o te marae. He mahi nā te toa, nā te tohunga. Nō te tau 2003 ka whai atu ia i tōna Ahorangi ki Awanuiārangi. I te rā nei ko ia te Ahorangi o Te Tari Māori i Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato.

Ko tetahi atu i te taha o Hirini Moko; ko te Ahorangi Ūmangako Whatarangi Winiata. I te ao i te po tā rāua kōkiri i ngā kaupapa tōrangapū o te Ao Māori; whakaaraara hoki i ngā tauira kia whakaaro nui ki te whakaputa i te ngao o te kōrero ki te ao whānui.

Ehara noa ko ngā kaupapa o te motu me te ao e pakangatia ana e rāua. I te whare wānanga nei ko āna ture me ngā āhuatanga aukati i te ao Māori i ēnei tūmomo wānanga. Nā rāua i kokiri kia whai whakaaro ki tā te Māori whakahaere i āna kaupapa. Ko te tohu nui o ēnei pakanga ko te whakaara, ko te whakaū i Te Tiriti o Waitangi ki ngā whakahaere katoa o te Whare Wānanga.

Otirā ka taka te wā e hoki ai rāua ki te mahi mā o rāua iwi ki te whakatū hoki i o rāua ake Whare Wānanga. Ko HiriniMoko i hoki ki Ngāti Awa ki te whakatū i Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi i te tau 1992. Ko Te Whare Wānanga o Raukawa nā Whatarangi. I whai atu ai hoki āna tamariki, i konei e mahi ana e ako ana kia noho pūkenga i tō rātou wānanga.

Nō te tau 1991 kē a Hirini Moko i wehe atu ai i tēnei whare wānanga, heoi he hokihoki tonu mai ki ngā huihuinga. Nō tēnei tau ka whakawhiwhi ai ki te tohu hōnore o Aotearoa (Distinguished Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit).

“E koro te rākau tuamatua o te wao ngā maiohaoha a tō whānau o Te Herenga Waka.”

TAKIRIRANGI SMITH ME NGĀ KAITOI

Nō ngā tau ruarua nei ka whakarauika mai ngā kaiwhao, kaituitui, kai tākōwhaiwhai ki te korero mo a rātou mahi ki te whakaara i te whare nei. I puta ai ngā kōrero nunui me ngā kōrero tinihanga o au rā. I taua wānanga i puta ai ngā kōrero mo ngā mahi a tēna a tēna. I kite ai hoki te whānui o tā rātou hīkoi i roto i ngā mahi toi puta noa i te motu tae atu ki tāwahi. Kua noho tohunga ētahi o rātou i roto i ēnei mahi pēnei ia a Nick Tūpara (Kaitarei), Mark Kōpua (kaitarei, uhi tā moko, tangata rongonui o te ao whanui), Heni Kerekere (nga mahi a Hineteiwaiwa), Con Jones kei te takatū tonu ki te tuitui tukutuku, mahi raranga i ngā whare o te motu.

Hāunga te tohunga a Takirirangi nō ēnei marama tata ka tutuki i a ia tōna tohu Tākutanga. Ngā mihi nui rawa atu. Ko tēnei tangata mai ka wehe atu e hokihoki tonu mai ana ki te tapitapi i te tāonga a ōna ringaringa. He tuku kōrero hoki ki ngā tauira mō te tārei tāonga tuku a te marae. I tēnei wā tonu kua tīmata tana tārei i te pou haki o te marae. Ko te tumanako ano ka oti i mua o te 6 o Hakihea o tenei tau. I roto o ēnei tau, tokorua ana tamariki kua whai, kua whiwhi i o rāua tohu mai i Te Kawa a Maui.

TE WHARE KOHUNGAHUNGA O AHUMAIRANGI

Ko ētahi atu wāhanga o tō tātou marae i ara i ngā tau o muri mai; he Kōhanga Reo mō ngā tamariki a ngā tauira me ngā kaiako Māori, ka taka te wā ka noho ko Te Whare Kohungahunga o Ahumairangi. I te tau ka pahure nei i whakanuia tia ai te tekau tau o Te Whare Kohungahunga. I taua tau anō hoki i tatū mai ai hei tauira i Te Kawa a Māui tētahi o ngā tamariki tuatahi a Te Hirata Moke. Koia nei te hua nui o te poipoi i a tātou tamariki i te reo.

NGĀ KĀINGA NOHO

He kāinga noho mō ngā tauira Māori i kōkirihia ki te whare wānanga. Ka whakawhihia mai ki te marae te Whānau House i Holloway Road. E rua tau kua pahure i hōmaitia ai he tuarua, arā ko Aromahana i Fairlie Terrace. Tērā pea ka waimarie tātou hei te tau e tū mai nei ka hokona atu a Holloway Road ka hōmaitia ai ko 61 Fairlie Terrace i te taha o Aromahana. Ko ngā tūmanako hei tōna wā ka whakawhiwhia mai ētahi atu kāinga noho i te whare wānanga i tua atu o ēnei.

TE KAWA A MĀUI

I te tīmatanga ko Te Tari Māori noa tō īngoa, heoi ka whakatauria kia tangohia te ingoa Wikitōria i te wāhanga Māori o tana ingoa ka whakaritea kia whakahoutia te ingoa, ki tēnei inaianei. Ko Te Kawa a Māui (TKAM) te whare wānanga o Māui (e ai ki ētahi kōrero)

I te tau 1999 ka aromatawaia tia a TKAM ka puta ko tētahi o ngā whakatau nui kia wehetia te marae mai i te maru me te whakahaere o te TKAM. I tutū rawa te puehu, heoi kīhai i arohia mai e te whare wānanga, e noho wehe tonu nei ēnei whakahāere. Ko TKAM te tino whirinakitanga me te herenga o ngā kaupapa ako o te ao Māori. Tērā pea a tona wā e hoki anō ai te ringa katau i te ringa māui!

TE KAPA HAKA

I te ōrokohanga mai o Te Herenga Waka i noho ai he kapa mo te whānau. Ko tāna he tautoko i ngā whakatūtū waewae o Rongomaraeroa ki ngā pōhiri, ki ngā mahi ā Rēhia i te whare wānanga nei. Rere rawa hoki rātou ki tāwahi ki te whakaatu i ēnei o ngā taonga a kui mā, a koro mā. I te tau 1991 ka whakaurutia rātou ki ngā whakataetae o te rohe o Te Whanganui ā Tara, wikitōria ana kotahi atu ki ngā whakataetae o te motu i Tūrangawaewae i te tau 1992. Whai tonu i tērā ka hoki atu ki te whakatūwhera i te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiarangi. I roto i ngā tau e whakauru ana te kapa i nga mahi ā Rēhia ia tau ia tau. E haere tonu nei ngā mahi ki te tautoko i te marae, i ngā whakapōtae o ngā tauira ki te Michael Fowler Centre, i ngā Hui Whakapūmau o te marae. Ko rātou tonu ngā ringaringa me ngā waewae o te marae. Autaia tonu tā rātou whakatūtū waewae i ngā whakataetae o te rohe i tēnei tau. Ka mihi ki tō rātou kaiako ki a Teurikore Biddle, i riro i a ia te tohu kaitātaki wahine.

NGĀ HUI

He maha rawa ngā huihuinga ahurei kua tū i tō tātou marae i roto i ngā tau, pērā anō hoki ngā tauira kua puta ki te ao whānui kei roto i ngā mahi ikeike e ārahi ana i tō tātou iwi.

HEI WHAKANUI I TĒNEI TAU RUA

Ngahurutanga aneī ngā kaupapa:

  • Poutūterangi – The Rangatiratanga Symposium 2006
  • Paengawhāwhā– Ko te rā whakanui i a Te Rangiāhuta Broughton
  • Haratua – Wānanga Mātauranga Māori
  • Hereturikoka– Te Huinga Tauira, Ngā Tau Tohetohe a Ngā Tauira
  • Mahuru – Ngā Mahi Toi
  • Whiringa-ā-nuku – Mā te ture anō te ture e patu!
  • Whiringa-ā-rangi – Te Rā whakanui i a Wiremu Parker (Ngā Mahi Pāpaoho)
  • Hakihea – (6/12) Te Rua Ngahurutanga, Te Hōkai (formal ball) (8/12)Hui Whakapūmau

I te tau 2000 ka whakawhiwhia te tūranga hou Toiahurei ki a Piri Sciascia. Ko tāna he kokiri i ngā kaupapa katoa e pā ana ki a Ngāi Tāua. Ko te marae tonu tētahi o ngā wāhanga nui kei raro i tōna maru. Kua tipu ake i ngā wāhanga katoa o te Whare Wānanga ngā kaupapa me ngā take Māori, a-ako, ā-kaupapa tautoko (Māori student services).

Heoi ko te marae tonu te tūrangawaewae mo Ngāi Tāua i te Whare Wānanga o Te Ūpoko o Te Ika a Māui. Ko te poutokomanawa e whikiti ai ngā waka ko Te Tumu. Heoi!

RED

: - SPONSORED - I have always thought that red was a sneaky, manipulative colour for Frank Jackson to choose in his Black and White Mary thought experiment. It is the colour of the most evocative emotions, love and hate, and symbolises some of the most intense human experiences, bi
