Whakairihia ko ‘te tinana’ ki paetara hei wetewete, hei wāwāhi mā te hirikapo.  Ko te tinana ka hono nei ki a hinengaro, ki a wairua kia hau mai ko te ira o te tangata me ōna, mana, tapu, ihi, aha atu, aha atu.  Ko te tinana te waka kawe i a tātou, o tātou wairua, whakaaro i ngā wai karekare o te ao hurihuri.

Me te pakari anō hoki o te waka nei.  I ngā wiki kua taha ake, kua kitea te taumata ka taea e te tinana.  Ko ngā taumāhekeheke o te ao tērā e whakaatu ana i te tino tihi o te maunga o te tinana pakari, te tinana kua whakairohia kia autāia te tū ki te mura o te ahi, ki te papa tākaro o whakataetae.

Hēoti, he taumata anō ka tāea ki te panaia ko te tinana kia whai i tā te whatumanawa, i tā te wairua whai.  Ki te pakari te hinengaro, ki te muramura mai te hiahia, ki te tika te haere ka whai mai ko tinana pakari.  Ko Te Huinga Tauira ki Pōneke 2016 te tauira o tēnei pahupahu, arā, ko te mahi kawea e ngā kaimahi.  Ka whakaeke mai ko te tini o tauira Māori ki Pōneke, mo Huinga te take, ā, nā Ngai Tauira te mana whenua i te tau nei.

Pō te ao, ao te pō, ko ngā kaimahi ērā e ātā muramura ana i te ahi o te kauta, e whakamahana ana i ngā paetara o wharemoe, e whakariterite ana i ngā whakahaerenga whakahirahira mo te hui.  Ko Ngai Tauira, ko Te Herenga Waka, otirā ngā rōpū katoa e hāpai ana, ā, ko ringa ka raupa mai, ko ihu ka ruku hohonu ki te one, waihoki ka whati ko tuara, ka mamae ko te tinana.

Mīharo katoa ahau ki ngā mahi i mahia mo te mōhio hoki i whati katoa a tinana ki te nuinga o te hunga hāpai ō.  Heoi, nā te ū ki te kaupapa o te hui, ki ngā tikanga a kui mā, a koro mā, ka pania a tinana ki taumata kē atu.  Ka parea ko mamae ki rāhaki, ka mū a tohe, a amu, ā, ka kawea te tinana kia ū ai ko kaupapa ki uta.

Kei uta anō hoki te whiu, tau ana!

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
