Mai i te pukapuka “Te Tākuta Pai”

I te whārangi tuatahi o tēnei rangitaki, i kōrero au mō te pukapuka The Good Doctor (ko te noho me ngā whakaaro o Lance O’Sullivan te kaupapa). Anei ētahi wāhanga iti noa iho mai i tērā pukapuka.

He Pākehā tōna māmā, ā, nō te Waka a Māui ia, otirā, he Māori tōna matua, nō te Ika a Māui. E ai ki a Lance, he tino rerekē te mahi a te kāwana ki ngā whānau o ōna mātua. Mō te taha Pākehā – i te wā ī hoki mai ai te tipuna tāne o Lance i te Pakanga Tuarua o Te Ao, i hōmai  whenua ki a ia e te kāwana (484 ngā eka, i te rohe o South Canterbury). Ahakoa te nui kē o te kōhi (gorse) ki reira, nā tōna kaha i taea e ia te hanga pāmu, ā nāwai rā, ka nui te ora o te whānau (ahakoa ehara i te mea he mea tino whai rawa). Otirā, kāore i pēnā mō te tipuna tāne o tōna pāpā (i te taha Māori). Hoki mai ai tērā i te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao, kua iti haere te whenua tipuna ki te mahi  tinihanga ā-ture a te kāwana, kua nui haere hoki te pēhi o  ngā tāke kaunihera (rates), me ērā momo mea. Kua pohara te whānau, ā, he kino te noho o te whānau, e kai noa iho ana rātou i ngā kai i te māra. Kino kē te tipu ake o Eddie Wātene, ko ia te pāpā o Lance. Nō ngā whārangi 26-27 tēnei kōrero. Ka aroha, nē rā.
