Kōrero: Ngā tuakiri hōu

Ka whakapōtaehia he kaumātua

Ka whakapōtaehia he kaumātua

Nō te tau 2010 rā anō ka whakapuaki a James Rāwiri i tana whaikōrero tuatahi. E 84 ōna tau. He kaumātua a Rāwiri nō Tainui. E 7 ōna tau ko te reo Māori anake e mōhio ana ia, engari nō roto i ana tau kura, ka ngaro i a ia tana reo. I te tau 2007 ka tīmata ia ki te ako i Te Whare Wānanga o Aotearoa, me te whai i ngā akomanga i pā ki te paheketanga o ngā kaumātua whai mātauranga o roto o Tainui. I te Hūrae o te tau 2010, ka tū ko Rāwiri mā ngā tuatahi kia whakapōtaetia ki taua hōtaka toru tau. I mea mai ia, 'Ka nui whakaharahara te reo Māori ki ngā whakatipuranga e heke mai nei, ā, ka whakapono au ko ā tātou tamariki me ā tātou mokopuna ka waimarie mehemea ka mōhio ki ngā taonga i tuku mai i ā tātou tīpuna.'
