Nā te Kōmiti Whakahaere o te Huinga Tauira 2016

1769 te tau, ka tae tuatahi mai a tauiwi ki tēnei whenua taurikura o tātou. Ko tōna hiahia, ko ngā tini rerehuatanga o Papatuānuku. Āpiti atu ki ngā tapuwae i waihotia mai e rātou i taua wā, ko ngā toki whakairoiro arero, toki tārai whakaaro hoki. Nō taua wā tonu ka rerekē hāere te hanga o te papa whenua a kiko, a whakaaro hoki mō ngāi tāua.

Mohoa nei, e anga atu ana te titiro ki te pae, te kitenga atu he rā anō kei tua. Koia ko te whitinga mai o Te Mātāwai hei herenga mā tātou ngā mōrehu a Māui. Mā Te Mātāwai ngā tini āhuatanga pōuri e aho mai anō, mā tōna wera tātou e āhei ai te pīhore i ngā tāera me ngā taura e here ana i ō tātou whakaaro e ai ki ngā whakaritenga a tauiwi e uaua ai te rere ki tua o te ao e karapoti ana i a tātou.

Ko tēnei kaupapa “Te Reo me ōna katoa” he kaupapa e whakanui ana i te Reo Māori ka tahi, engari ka whakanui hoki i ngā tikanga, ngā tukanga, me ngā tūmomo haumarutanga e whakamahana ana i te tangata kōrero Māori. Ko te “ōna” e kōrerotia ana, e hāngai ana ki ngā tini āhuatanga atu i te kupu, arā, ngā waiaro me ngā wairua Māori e hua mai ana i te reo. Kia kapo ake i te kōrero a Te Rangihau, “ko te reo te poutaka e iri ai ngā tāonga a ngā mātua tīpuna”.

Ko te pūtake o tēnei kaupapa he waiwai i ngā kākano e noho maroke ana ki roto i ngā whenua pīrere o hiahia, o whakaaro o tēnā, o tēnā. Mā tēnei waiwai e haumako mai anō ngā whenua o roto i a tātou.

Ko Te Matawai te whitinga o te ao hou mō ngāi tāua, ko tēnei aronga tētahi o ngā tuamaka a Māui. Mā tātou anō tēnei tuamaka e ruku ki Te Mātāwai. Mā reira e mau i a tātou ōna painga katoa

 

Te Huinga Tauira is the annual National Māori Students’ Conference where tauira have the opportunity to gather to discuss topical issues, participate in cultural and sporting activities and raise awareness about issues that affect Māori students at tertiary institutions, and within the wider community. This year Ngāi Tauira will be hosting Te Huinga Tauira ki te Ūpoko o te Ika. We would like to acknowledge the following sponsors; Victoria University of Wellington, Te Puni Kokiri, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori me Victoria University of Wellington Students Association.

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
