Haruru Ana

Ko tātou tēnei e tautāwhi ana, e raupī ana te haumanutanga o te reo Māori kia renarena te taukaea. Heoi i runga i tēnei kaupapa whakahirahira kātahi anō tētehi toki whakaora i te reo ka whakanui i tōna rā whānau waru tekau. Ko Te Huirangi Waikerepuru tētehi i whakapeto ngoi kia whakamana e te kāwana i tēnei puiaki. Nā tōna mahi i te taha o te roopu hui whakapūmau i te reo, kua pārekehia tēnei taonga ki te kōpū o Taranaki whānui, ki te poho o te whenua huri noa.

“Kia maia kia toa kia manawanui ki te kaupapa o tā tātou reo. Kāore he kōrero kē atu. Mā te kōrero ka rangona. Kaua e whakaeke kōrerotia te reo. Kaua e whakahihi, kōrero pai tō reo. Kanohi Māori kia kaha ki te kōrerotia te reo Māori. Ngā mea matatau ki te reo Māori kōrerotia te reo.”

Nā reira e tika ana ngā kōrero ‘kaua ma te waewae tūtuki engari mā te Ūpoko apā anō’ kia kore ai i memeha tō tātou reo rangatira.

E te poutoko hāpai i tēnei taonga, haruru ana te rongo pai nei e horahia nei e te reo, ki runga i ngā iwi o te motu nei!

We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.

: Interior – Industrial Soviet Beerhall – Night It was late November and cold as hell when I stumbled into the Zhiguli Beer Hall. I was in Moscow, about to take the trans-Mongolian rail line to Beijing, and after finding someone in my hostel who could speak English, had decided
