TE MANU E KAI ANA I TE MĀTAURANGA

I te āhua o te whakataukī he whakahirahira te mātauranga. Kei konei tātou ki te whai mātauranga hei whāngai i te whānau, hei whāngai i te hapū te marae me te iwi. I ngā teihana Pākehā o ngā reo irirangi, niupepa, pouaka whakaata hoki, kua waihangatia tētahi āhua pōuri o te iwi Māori. E ai ki ngā kōrero o te ao hauora me te ao mātauranga, e mate ana te Māori i te pōharatanga. He nui ngā kōrero e pā ana ki tēnei kaupapa. Hei tā ētahi, kua mate te Māori i te koretaketanga

o te Kāwanatanga. Hei tā ētahi atu, nā te Māori kē ia anō i whakararu. E kī e kī, ki te whakapono tātou ki te whakaaro o muri mai kāore e kore ka hinga te iwi. Kua pahure ngā tau kotahi rau whitu tekau mā rua i tāngia te Tiriti o Waitangi engari e whawhai tonu ana tātou kia tū motuhake ngā marae o Aotearoa.

Ko te āhua nei, ko Wikitōria hoki tērā e kore e whakamana i te Tiriti. Kua whakarōpūngia te Māori ki iwi kē o te moana-nui-ā-kiwa hei rōpū e noho hauā i ngā āhuatanga o te hapori. Ka hono te Māori ki aua iwi engari i te whakaaro o te Tiriti ko te Māori te tangata whenua o tēnei motu.

Ka huri ki te tino aronga o tēnei kōrero. Nei tāku, me pēhea tātou ki te whakanui i te whare wānanga nei mehemea kāore te whare wānanga e whakanui i te mana o te Māori? Me pēhea te karanga atu ki ngā whānau kia haere mai ki konei ako ai mehemea kāore te whare wānanga e whai wā ki te whāngai i a rātou? E rua ngā tino raru o te wā.

I te tuatahi, I tēnei Mane ka hui te kaunihera o te whare wānanga nei, wānanga ai ngā moni rēhita o ngā pepa ako. E ai ki te tumuaki tuarua kāore e kore ka nui ake te utu. Ka pēhea ngā whānau ki te kai i te mātauranga mehemea e kore e taea te whai pūtea? I te tuarua, mā rātou e whai wā ki te haere mai, ka aha a Wikitōria ki te whāngai i a rātou mehemea kāore te whare wānanga e whakanui i te Tiriti?

Kua whai hua ahau i ngā tari Māori me Te Herenga Waka engari ka tū mō ake tonu ēnei pou ki te kore te Tiriti e whai mana? E aua hoki.
