Te Matatini 2015

I ahu mai Te Matatini o Te Rā i te tau 1972. I puawai tēnei whakataetae kapa haka hei poipoi, hei whakarangatira, hei whakatinana i to tātou iwi Māori me ngā taonga tuku iho. Ko te kapa haka he momo toi whakaari ka noho tata ki tō tātou ngākau. Mai rā ano i raranga i ngā pakiwaitara, ā, i ngā kōrero, i ngā pukenga o tēra hapu, o tēra iwi i roto i te kapa haka. Ko tēnei mea te kapa haka he momo mahi-ā-tinana, ā, he momo mahi-ā-wairua.

Ia rua tau ka tū ngā whakataetae ki tēnei iwi, ki tēra iwi o te motu. I tēnei tau i tū ngā whakataetae kapa haka o Te Matatini ki Ōtautahi, Te Waipounamu. Kāore e kore i whakamana te iwi i a rātou anō mai i te ekenga mai o ngā tira o te motu tae noa ki te whakamutunga.

Parekapreka ana ki te kite i ngā tamariki, i ngā kaumatua, i ngā whanau i huihui mai ki te tautoko i ngā rōpū kapa haka. Kāore he kupu hei whakamarama i te wairua o te hunga matakimaki, ka eke te rōpū ki runga i te atamira, kua tau te mauri.

Katahi rā i tu maia, i tu rangatira ngā kaihaka katoa. I kitea e te tangata i te ihi, te wehi me te wana i runga i te ātamira. Ka whātero ngā arero ki a Ranginui, ka pukanakana ki to tātou whaea a Papatuanuku. Ka kaha te mauri o ngā kaihaka i runga i te ātamira i  maringi ngā roimata o Ranginui mo ngā rā e rua.

Kāti rā me whakanuia e tātou i ngā tauira, i ngā kāhui ākonga onamata i tū ake i runga i te atamira o te Matatini. I tū rātou hei manutaiko mo a rātou ake iwi, hei manu tīoriori mo ā rātou ake whānau. Ko rātou mā e koekoe, e ketekete, e kuku ana. Na rātou i kawe i ngā puhi raukura ki ngā tatahi o Te Waipounamu,hei reo mo ā rātou ake iwi,hei reo mo Te Whare Wananga o Wikitoria. He mihi matakuikui ki a kōutou i tuia i te korowai ka uhia i ngā pakahiwi o ō tātou matua tipuna. Ka noho kōutou hei pou, hei tauira mo ngā pia ka eke ki runga i te mata o Te Whare Wananga o Wikitoria.

Ten things I wish my friends knew about being Māori

: 1). I wish my friends knew that when they ask me what “percentage” of Māori I am—half, quarter, or eighth—they make me feel like a human pie chart. I don’t know how people can ask this so nonchalantly, but they do. So I want to let you know: this is a very threatening
