Te Ara Tauira

E koekoe te tui, e ketekete te kākā, e kūkū te kereru.

Ko te tangi, ko te waiata a te wahine te reo tuatahi i runga i te marae-ā-tea. Nō ngā purakau o ngā atua e arahia ake tēnei tikanga, nā e whai tōnu mātou te iwi Māori. Piki mai rā, kake mai rā ki te whare kōrero a kui mā, a koro mā. I tōku whare ka tū ake ngā pou whakairo hei tuapapa mō tēnei mea kamehameha te karanga.

He mana tō te karanga. He aha rā te tikanga o tēnei kōrero? Ehara i te mea ka noho te mana i runga i a koe anake, engari ka noho koe hei reo mo tō whānau, mo tō hapū, mo tō iwi, nā mō ngāi Māori kē. Ki te tū hei kaikaranga kei te whakamana koe i a Papatuanuku, ā, i ngā mātua tipuna kua hoki ki ngā rangituhāhā.

He wairua tō te karanga. He aha rā te tikanga o tēnei kōrero? He ahua kāore e tino marama ki te titiro atu. Ki ahau nei ka ahu mai te wairua mai i te manawa, mai i te ngakau, ā, ka puta ki te whai ao ki te ao mārama. He ahuatanga ka ora i waenga i te hunga ora, ā he ahuatanga ka ora i te te hunga mate, nā tēnei hononga ka kaa te ahi.

He haerenga tō te karanga. He aha rā te tikanga o tēnei kōrero? Ko te karanga he ara mo te tangata mai i te kore, ki te pō, ki te māramatanga. He nekehanga o te tangata mai i te tomokanga tae noa atu ki te poho o te whare. Ehara i te nekehanga ā-tinana anake engari he nekehanga ā-wairua, ā-whakaaro hoki.

Mehemea kā tū te kaikaranga i te taha tangata whenua, i te taha manuhiri rānei he mana tō te karanga, he wairua tō te karanga, he harenga tō te karanga.

I’m Not Sure How I Feel: Disillusionment With Elections

: - SPONSORED - This post-election sentiment was written prior to the election, due to both the limitations of print and the pervasiveness of this disillusionment beyond the election’s outcome. If there was a revolution over the weekend, some of these thoughts can be disregarded.
