He kōrero poto, riterite tonu, i te reo Māori

Tēnā koe! Ko te whakaaro o te rangitaki nei, kia puta mai ai … he kōrero poto, riterite tonu, i te reo Māori. Nō reira, ko wai au? Ko Ngāti Pākehā te iwi, nō Ingarangi, no Tiamani ōku tūpuna; i whānau mai au i Ahuriri, i tipu ake au i Rotorua, otirā, kei Ōtepoti tōku kāinga inaianei. Ko John tōku ingoa. E whai tonu ana ahau i te tohu kairangi i te Whare Wānanga o Otago (he kaupapa reo Māori), otirā, kei te kimi mahi hoki – kua pau te karahipi, kāore anō kia oti te tuhinga roa!.

Otirā, ko te kaupapa – he kōrero poto, riterite tonu, reo Māori hoki. He kōrero poto, kia ngāwari ai te riterite tonu! Me te reo Māori, kia rere ai te reo (nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou). Me mōhio hoki koe, ko “Ahuamōhio” taku ingoa i tēnei wāhi ipurangi, a WordPress – i te reo Pākehā, ‘reasonably knowledgeable, knows a fair amount’ – engari, ehara tēnei i te mea tino matatau! Mena kua hē te whakatakoto o tētahi kōrero, whakatika mai…

Nā tētahi tama tāne nō Tiamani e noho tahi me tōku whanau i homai ki ahau te pukapuka The Good Doctor, hei whakanui i taku huritau i tērā marama. Ko te kaupapa, ko te oranga me ngā whakaaro o Lance O’Sullivan. Pai rawa atu te mea nei! Nō reira, ā tōna wā, ka kitea ētahi o ngā wāhanga pai i tēnei whārangi.

Me te pikitia ki runga nei? Ko te ahi i te pāparakāuta iti i konei, ko te Inch Bar. E hia kē ngā haora i noho au i reira, e kōrero ana, e katakata ana me ētahi hoa kōrero Māori, i ngā ahiahi pō, ia Wenerei, ia Wenerei.

Hei konā rā!
