Māori Matters

Kia whakairi ake te kaupapa mo te wiki nei koia, ko ngā ‘feelings.’  Ko tāku he kōrero mo ngā kare-ā-roto me te hē o te noho whakatōngā, wahangū ki ngā aupēhitanga o te ao kikokiko.

He kaupapa nui whakaharahara tēnei i ngā rā anamata nei.  Kei ngā tōpitopito katoa o o tātou ao ngā kōrero, ngā pikitia me ngā karere mo ngā kaupapa pēnei i te mate pāpouri, te anipā tae rawa ki te whakamomori.  Ko ngā wero ki Pukamata, ko ngā whakatairanga ki ngā pouka whakaata aha atu, aha atu.  He kaupapa nui ēnei, engari he uaua ka kite i te tangata Māori tino hiahia ki te kōrero.  Heoi, me kōrero, ka tika.

Kei tēnā, kei tēnā o tātou o tātou ake raruraru, o tātou aupēhitanga, ngā maunga pukepuke e ārai ana i te huarahi ki o mātou ake pae tawhiti.  Ki ētahi, ka whati a turi i te taumaha o ngā pōrarurarutanga nei, ka waipuketia te whatumanawa ki te pouritanga, ā, ko ngā kare-a-roto ērā e kōrorirori ana i te puku.  Kia pono aku kupu, ehara au i te mātanga hinengaro, te tohunga kare-ā-roto rānei, heoi kua kitea ki wī, ki wā, ko te rongoa matua ki ngā raruraru o te ao, ahakoa tana momo, ko te kai a te rangatira, koia ko te kōrero – ko te whakawhitiwhiti kōrero, whakawhitiwhiti whakaaro, kia horaina ngā kare-ā-roto, kia wetewetehia ngā nawe, kia whāia he rautaki whakatau i ngā raruraru o te wā.

He māmā te kite ko ngāi Māori, ko ngāi tāne te hunga kaore pea i te hiahia ki te kōrero mo ngā kare-ā-roto, mo ngā mea uaua whai hāngai ki a rātou anō.  Engari kare he hua o te noho wahangū, te noho whakatōngā kia kōrorirori noa atu ngā whakaaro, ngā kare-ā-roto kia koropupū, kia pahū mai.  He nui ngā hua o te kōrerorero.  Mā te kōrero ka hikina māmā haere te taumaha ki ngā pakihiwi.  Mā te kōrero ki tētahi hoa ka whai pou whirinaki koe hei toka tū moana mou i ngā ngaru kaitangata o te ao hurihuri.  Mā te kōrero ka whai wāhi koe ki ngā kupu akiaki, ki ngā kupu āwhina a o hoa, tō whānau, ngā mātanga hinengaro rānei.  Nōreira e hika mā, kōrerotia te kōrero, huakina te tatau ki te puku, kia maringi iho mai ko ngā kare-ā-roto, ngā raruraru, kia hikina tahitia e tātou ā-whānau, ā-hoa, ā-Māori.

Go Watch TV: Rick and Morty and Secular Humanism

: - SPONSORED - Writers and critics have praised Rick and Morty for its sharp character writing and absurdist take on sci-fi tropes, and I count myself in that number. But there is a mounting backlash against it that I can’t help but pick a bone with. On one of the many, many pop
