Ngāi Tauira

E rere kau nei,

mai i te kahui maunga ki Tangaroa.

Ko au te awa.

Ko te awa ko au.

Nei ra tāku mihi maioha ki a koutou e hoe ana tō waka ki tēnei whare wananga o Te Upoko o te ika a Maui, ōtira ki Te Tumu Herenga Waka. Nāu mai, piki mai, kake mai ki raro i te manaakitanga. Ko Kealyn Marshall tēnei. E tipu ake au ki Te Awa Tupua o Whanganui, ā, nō Ngā Rauru me Te Whānau ā Apanui anō hoki. Ko au tētahi o ngā tumuaki takirua o Ngāi Tauira. E whai ana ahau i ōku tohu o te matauranga me te reo māori hoki.

Uia mai koe whakahuatia ake ko wai te whare nei e?

Ko wai te teko teko kei runga?

Ko Paikea! Ko Paikea!

Ko wai tēnei? Ko Maia Te Koha he uri no te Whitingamai o te ra! He tau tuatoru ahau ki te whare wānanga. Kei te whai ahau i ōku tohu matauranga me te reo māori. Ko au tētahi o ngā tumuaki takirua o te roopu Ngāi Tauira. Ko te tumanako ka tautoko ahau, mātou ko tōku roopu i ngā tauira hei poutokomanawa mā koutou.

This year, as the co-presidents of Ngāi Tauira (VUW Māori Students’ Association), our goals are to build on our relationships with our fellow student associations. This will ensure that we are advocating for Māori students using a collective impact approach. In addition to this, we provide holistic social and academic support to ensure students have a well-balanced lifestyle and the best university experience. We are your Māori whanau on campus that always has hot kai and quality bantz!

Follow us on Facebook, Snapchat (ngai_tauira), and Instagram, or come see us around uni!

Watch this space whanz!

The Things We Share

: - SPONSORED - As a Pākehā kid, when I first learnt to mihi, I found that building a sense of my own whakapapa was a kind of patchwork, something I could stitch together by pulling threads from family stories. The waka I chose, or borrowed from my father, was called the Wanganel
