He Waka Ianei E Herea

Rātou kua wehe atu

I TE TAU KUA PAHURE, KUA TAU MAI TE KAPUA PŌURI I RUNGA I NGĀ TAUIRA, NGĀ KAIMAHI, NGĀ MĀORI O WIKITŌRIA. I NGARO ATU RĀ TE IERE O NGĀ MANU NEI, ARĀ KO ROB DOWNES, KO AUNTY PAE RĀTOU KO BOO (LINDA) PEARLESS. NEI NGĀ MAIMAI AROHA MŌ RĀTOU.

Aunty Pae
nā Te Whanau o Te Herenga Waka

E pā tō reo, e Te Tairāwhiti e
pākatokato ai te aroha i ahau.
Tākiri ko te ata kia kōrihi ko te manu,
ka tahuri, ka tahuri
ka ngātoro i te whenua!
He pōkēao tātaka mai ki te whenua takareko mai ai,
he māwakerangitahi hei ngaki i te mate.

He wharekura, he maraekura, he reo tūnohunohu
he ringatōhao nui ki te whakapeto ngoi kia tino kore tō tātou reo rangatira
e ngaro ki te Whanga-nui-ā-Tara
otira i te mata o te whenua.
kia kore anō hoki e eke te wā manawakiore ai te reo

Maiea maiangi te whare tāhūhū kōrero kōkewa atu, kōkewa mai.
He marutuna, he maruwehi e noho ai ko ia hei pou whakawhirinakitanga
mō te Whānau o Te Herenga Waka.
He manu tītakataka o Te Whānau-a-Apanui me Ngāti Porou i te oinga kōtore o te marae mai i te whānautanga mai o Te Herenga Waka Marae.

He kanohi i kitea ki te marae i ngā wā i kōkiritia ai e te marae me Te Kawa a Māui i āna kaupapa whakangungu, whakamātautau i ngā tauira. Ko ia tonu i noho ki tā te kanohi hōmiromiro aromatawai ai i ngā tauira kia kite atu ai he aha ngā kai i roto i ō rātou hirikapo, he aha rā ngā kai i roto i ō rātou ngākau i roto hoki i ō rātou hinengaro. Tae noa ki ngā kaupapa hoki i whakahaeretia e Ngāi Tauira mō Te Wiki o Te Reo.

He kanohi i kitea anō hoki i ngā hui whakapūmau a ngā tauira. Ko ia anō hoki tēnei i taunaki i ngā tauira i whakawhiwhia ki te raukura. He ngākau mahaki he ngākau makere, he puna mātauranga, he ika a Whiro,

he kete whakatihi a kura mahora, a kura huna i noho ai a Pae Ruha hei whaea, hei kuia mō Te Whānau o Te Herenga Waka. He maire parepare, he pākairiri he manawa ora.

Ko koe tēnā e te onge kāmehameha kua nunumi atu ki te pō.
E kōmanawa ake te whakaingoingo mōu te kura ka riro
ka rehu atu ai koe te whetu kukume ata
kia whitawhita te moe i te moenga te rea
i te moenga te au,
i te moenga te whakaarahia,
ki te takapou wharanui o tō tātau tīpuna a Hinenuitepoo.

Rob Downes
nā Tere Harrison

I ā au e tuitui kōrero ana mōhau e Rob kā pāpōuri mai tō iwi
Kua hinga tō amokapua, kua riro ā Timi, aue Tuwharetoa e

Tō oranga katoa, he ringa tupono koe ki te whare o Te Heuheu
Nā, i ā tātou e poroāki nei koe, e tika ana kia mihia, kia tangihia tō Ariki

Mōhau rā
Ahakoa kua hura te tau
E ua e te ua, te ua i aku kamo
Wai ka rere, mehe tāheke e rere
He puna roimata, he tohu aroha mōhau
E te hua ō manaaki, ō aroha, ō rangimārie, Nāhau rā tātou o Te Herenga Waka i whiri, i here, i pipiri
Kia eke ki te pae poto ā Rangiāhuta,
Kia hora te marino i ngā ngaru wānanga
Koe hei tumu, koe hei tuara, koe hei tuwata Nei tātou ka tangi
Nāu tonu te reo Māori i pāhō ki ngā tai ā Tara, ki ngā awa ō Kairangi
Me te wawata o te ngākau, ka pā mai anō tō reo
Hoi, tē taea e ngākau te aha

Kua mū te koro tui o Korohe
Ana tō pukenga, tō koha ki te ao, ko tō reo Nōhau te reo waiata e hika e
Kei pōhēhē tātou kua ea ā mamae, kua māhea ā riri – e kao, ka ngau kino tonu nei
He aha ai? Te wā i tau heke, i tau wehe ai tō tinana, kihai tō reo e tau maha, e tau toro
Tō tātou tangata manaaki kāore tātou i manaaki, te pūmanawa i hē manawa
Ko taku tangi, ko taku whakamā he rite! Kātahi ka rere mai tō reo ngāwariwari, E tau e te hoa, e tau
Ā ka noho koe, ka waiata i tō waiata E Ihoa o ngā mano te Matua…
Ka whakatoi atu au, Ko tō reo waiata nō tō taha Kahungunu e hoa ā ka pakaru mai tō katakata
I ō pukukata, i ō kupu rongopai, ka tipu taku ngākau hou…
Ā tēnā e te hoa, waiho māua ko mahara nui i te poho o Te Herenga Waka
Kia tirohia koe, kia tirohia o hoa haere ā Tukaki, Raniera, Anipera mā
Kua ngaro atu koe, koutou i te kitenga kanohi Engari kei whatumanawa koutou mau tonu ē He aroha nui mōhau Rob, takato, e moe, okioki e
I runga i te ingoa o te Matua, te Tama, te Wairua Tapu me ngā Anahera Pono me te Māngai, Ae.

A ha Te Herenga Waka iii eee!

Boo (Linda) Pearless
 David Jones 

E rere ngā wai o Tongariro kia waimeha i te mamae e haehae nei i ahau
Ko ngā maharatanga mōu kua mokopapa ki te kokonga ngākau
He reo pākura ki te pō he reo tuitui i te tokomaha
he wai kei te rangi he wai kei ngā kamo, E hine moe mai rā.

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
