Māori Matters

Ko te kaupapa hei arohaehae i tēnei wiki ko te “surveillance.”  Heoi, he kaupapa uaua, he kaupapa hou, otirā, he tauhou ahau ki te kaupapa nei.

Nōreira au ka timata ki te rangahau, ā, e ai ki te Papakupu Māori (http://maoridictionary.co.nz) ko tōna kupu Māori ko te “tūtai”, arā, “to keep watch, spy, scout out, keep under surveillance, watch.”

Nā tēnei māramatanga, ka toko ake ētahi kaupapa i te hirikapo.  Ko te whakaekeekenga o ngā Pirihimana ki Tūhoe tērā i te tau 2007 tētahi kaupapa hāngai ki te “surveillance.”

Heoi, ko tāku he kōrero mo ngā āhuatanga ka hahū mai i ngā kitenga o Youtube, o Pukamata.  He maha anō ngā āhuatanga ka hunaia e ngā Kāwanatanga, e ngā rangatira kaipakihi o te ao kia hunaia ētahi kōrero, ētahi kaupapa rānei e hāngai ana ki te whai moni, ki ngā āhuatanga tōrangapū rānei.  Ka kitea tēnei āhuatanga i ngā whenua katoa o te motu, ā, kua waiho ki a Youtube, ki a Pukamata rānei kia puta ngā kōrero tūturu ki te ao.

Hei tauira, kei te tipu tonu te reo o te marea ki ngā hara o ngā Pirihimana ki te hunga e tika ana kia tiakina e rātou.  Kei Amerika ngā tino tauira o te āhua kaikiri o te Pirihimana, ā, ko te hua, ko te riri, ko te mamae o ngā iwi mangumangu o reira.  Ae, kua kawea e ngā rōpū pāpāhō ēnei kōrero ki te ao, engari ko te nuinga o ngā kiriata e whakaatu ana i te kino o ēnei hara ka whakairihia ki te ipurangi kia puta ki te ao.

I ētahi whenua, pērā i a Papua ki te Uru, kua mū katoa te reo o te tangata kua aupēhitia nā ngā ture o te Kāwanatanga o te whenua rā. Ā, nā ngā here a tō tātou ake Kāwanatanga, nā te kuare rānei, kāore ngā kōrero nei e puta ki te motu.  Nā whai anō kua noho kuare tātou, ā, kua waiho ki te tokoiti anake, te hunga mōhio, kia kawe i ngā nawe nei ki te Kāwanatanga hei aruaru.

I ētahi horopaki, he mea pai te whakamahi i te ipurangi hei whakapāoho i ngā kaupapa kōrero nei, kia kaua e hunaia, kia ātā rongo, kia ātā kite te ao i ngā kōrero tūturu mo te ao katoa, kia kaua anō hoki e hunaia kia parea ki rāhaki.

I, Daniel Blake and the Welfare State

: Recently at the NZIFF I was fortunate enough to see Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake, this year’s winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes. By the end of the film nearly everybody seemed to be in mourning and most of the people seated around me were sniffling and wiping their eyes. I,
