Ka mate kāinga tahi, kei hea a kāinga rua?

Ko te kāinga he kaupapa whakamahana i te whatu manawa, whakakoakoa i ngā mahara e kōrorirori nei i te hinengaro.   He maha anō hoki ngā momo kāinga, heoi ko te mātāpono ka kitea i ngā momo kāinga katoa nei ko tōna iho, arā, ko te tūrangawaewae.  Ko te tūrangawaewae te tūāpapa e āhei ai te tangata ki te hanga ake i tōnā katoa, i tōna tuakiritanga, i tōnā ao.

Heoi, he tokomaha ngā tangata e noho kāinga kore ana i ngā tōpitopito o Aotearoa, Māori mai, Pākeha mai.  Ko ētahi e moe mararā nei i ngā tiriti matua ki ngā tāone nui.  Ko ētahi whānau, whai tamariki kōhungahunga, e moe ana i roto i o rātou waka, ahakoa te tio o te hōtoke.  Kāore kau he kāinga, he tūāpapa, he tūrangawaewae.  Kāore he hua o taku ruku hohonu ki te take i pēnei ai te noho pōhara o te tangata, kāore i au aua tatauranga, aua mōhiotanga.  Heoi, mārakerake ana te kite, he raruraru e koropupū ana.

Inā anō te nui o ngā rautaki kua kōkirihia e te Kāwanatanga mō te hunga kainga kore, ā, he rerekē ngā hua, ngā painga ka puta.  Heoi, kua roa nei au e tautoko ana i te whakaaro kei a Māori anō hoki te kawenga ki te whakaara ake i a tātou anō i ngā aupiki, auheke o te ao.  Ka tika kia mihia te hunga pērā i ngā marae o Te Puea rāua ko Manurewa kei Tamaki Makaurau, kua tūwhera i a rātou tatau ki te hunga kāinga kore.  He nui anō ngā hua kua heke i ēnei o ngā whakatauiratanga o te aroha.  I tua atu i ngā kai wera, ngā moenga mahana, kua āwhinatia hoki te hunga nei ki te whai kāinga, whai mahi, whai oranga mō rātou.  He nui ngā hua kua puta i te aroha o te tokoiti.  Whaia te tauira nei! Tautokohia te kaupapa nei! Kia ora te tangata, kia ita tōna tū i te ao hurihuri.

The shade of Pasifika Brown is Bold and Brilliant. So is being a Woman and Fa’afafine

: Proud. Because I am a woman. I am a fa’afafine. I am unapologetic for that. Brown. Because my skin carries the stories of thousands of brown women who came before me. Pasifika. Because I know this is my culture. This is tradition. I know that there has been, and will always be,
