Kōrero: Ngā Māori kei tāwāhi

Eugene Toki

Eugene Toki

I hūnuku a Eugene Toki atu i Tāmaki ki Ahitereiria i te tekau tau atu i 1980. I te tau 1989 e rua ana mahi – i ngā rā o te wiki ka mahi a ia hei kaiwhakatika mīhini, hei ngā rā whakatā ka hoko tī hāte ia ki ngā wāhi hokohoko o Poipiripiri. Tekau mā rua tau a ia ki Ahitereiria ka mutu, kotahi anake te kupu kaikiri i whiua ki a ia. Nā te kuia o tana ipo: ‘He nika ia neha?’ Ka hemo kē a Eugene i te kata. Nō muri ka whakarata mai te kuia ki a ia.
