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.

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
