Kōrero: Te iwi Māori me te Whakaata

Te Waka huia, 1987

Ko te waka huia he ipu pupuri taonga, ka mutu ko te hōtaka o Waka Huia te kaipupuri i ngā kōrero a te hunga kaumātua o ngā iwi Māori. I tū ngā uiui tuatahi ki Waitangi i te tau 1987. Ko te kaingārahu me te kaiārahi ko Hēmi Hēnare (ka whakaaturia i te mutunga o tēnei kiriata) te kaumātua tuatahi i whakaae kia uiuitia. Whai muri mai i a ia ko Mira Szaszy, te perehitini o te Rōpū Wāhine Māori Toko i te Ora. Ko te whakahau a Te Reo Tātaki ki a Leonard rāua ko Ngata, me rapu e rāua ētahi ratonga mai i waho hei huruhuru mō te kaupapa. I haramai ngā pūtea i te Tari Māori, te tari mātauranga i mua noa atu i te whakaratonga atu o Te Reo Tātaki.

I roto i tēnei kiriata ka tīmata a Hēmana Waaka i runga i te tauparapara kātahi ka tuku i tana mihi ki te hunga mate, ka rua ki te hunga ora. Kātahi ia ka kī, ‘Ko te kaupapa o tēnei taonga tuku iho ki te iwi Māori, he hopu haere i ngā kōrero a ngā mōrehu kaumātua e ora tonu ana i ēnei rā.’
