Tuatahi ko wai a Ngaruaa?
He roopu waiata a Ngaruaa,
Ko Christine Waitai Raapana raaua ko Acushla Deanne O’Carroll.

Whakamaaramahia mai, i ahu mai te ingoa i hea?
Ko te mauri o te ngaru toona whakamaarama, i ahu mai te ingoa nei mai i te maanuka i whakatakotoria e Maaui Tikitiki. Kia rite taaua te Maaori ki te wairua o teenaa oo Maaui. Kia whakahiihii te tuu, rukuhia te ruku o te Kaawau.

He aha ngaa momo waiata i runga o te koopae nei?
He waiata Maaori katoa ngaa waiata o roto i te koopae. He whaanui ngaa kaupapa. He kaupapa toorangapuu, pakiwaitara, aroha, reo Maaori heoi he tangi oonamata toona, e whakauru ana i ngaa taaonga puuoro whakatangi Maaori. He akiaki teenei ki te hunga rangatahi kia whai i oou moemoea i tua atu i te pou raahui. Kia reo Maaori ngaa waiata. Hei aha? Hei whakamana i too taatou Maaoritanga, too taatou Reo Rangatira.

Tuatahi naa, he waahanga noa iho maaua o Ngaruaa e hanga ake ana i te whare whakairo e whakarangatira ana i too taatou reo Maaori. Ko te tumanako ka whai mai te hunga rangatahi i ngaa tapuwae kua takahia e maaua o Ngaruaa. Koiraa taa maaua moemoea kia kite i a Maaori, e whakamana ana i too raatou Maaoritanga.

Koinei te wiki o te reo Maaori, hei whakakapi ake, he aha teetahi whakatauki moo ngaa taiohi e hiahia ana ki te whai atu i te ara e takahia ana e Ngaruaa?
