Kōrero: Tuakiri o Aotearoa me te kāwanatanga

Te whakamau i te koru

Te whakamau i te koru

Ahakoa kāore tōna mana ā-ture, mai anō i tōna mautanga tuatahi e te kapa whutupaoro Māori ki Peretānia i te tau 1888, he tohu whakahirahira te koru nō Aotearoa. I te nuinga o te wā, ka whakamahia tēnei tohu ki runga i ngā kākahu o ngā kapa hākinakina, ki runga hoki i ngā kākahu me ngā urupā o ngā ope taua. He waitohu anō tēnei e whakamahia ana ki roto i ngā mahi hoko ki tai mō te mīti me ngā hua miraka. I tīmata mai te ia o te tā tuhi ki runga i te tinana i te kaitākaro poiuka i a Kim Dermott. I tū a ia ki Ngā Taumāhekeheke o te Ao i te tau 2000. Kei runga anō i te hoahoanga nei, ko ngā porowhita o Ngā Taumāhekeheke o te Ao. Ko tētahi o ngā porowhita e mau ana i ngā kōtuitui o te pōro poiuka.
