He mea māori noa iho (ehara i te mea Māori anake!)

I tēnei pohi, he kiriata whakangahau mō te kīanga ‘Tau kē!’me ētahi whakaaro mō te wiki o te reo Māori.

Mena he kōrero Māori koe / kōrua/ koutou, kua hōhā i te wiki nei, me ngā kupu akiaki ki te ‘Korero Māori!!!!’ Ia rā, ia rā, ka whakarongo au ki te reo, ka kōrero au i te reo, ka ako mea hou i te reo… he mea māori noa iho, i kōrerotia e ētahi hoa Māori, hoa Pākehā, hoa Wīwī (me te whakaahua ki runga). Āe, ka auē hoki ahau ina ka rongo e toru orau o te motu nei he kōrero Māori. Āe mārika, me akiaki te nuinga kia ako ai, kia kōrero ai i te reo, otirā – ko te mea nui ki ahau, me tuku rauemi pai ki ngā mea e ako ana, kia pai ai ō rātou haerenga reo Māori.

Anei te  kiriata whakangahau, nā Rā Pomare; ko te whakaaro, e ai ki a ‘Spinoff’, ka puta mai he mea hou ia rā, ia rā o te wiki nei. Kia pai te wiki nei, me te ako tonu i tēnei reo rangatira.

Mauri ora rā!

Kei Ōtautahi ahau, kia whakatikaina ai taku karu māui

 

I tērā wiki i tuhi au i te mea nei. I pōhēhē kua tukuna ki te ipurangi, engari, kua hē

E hia kē ngā tau e tatari ana kia whakatikangia taku karu i te rāngai hauora tūmatanui, otirā, auare ake. Nō reira, anei ahau i Ōtautahi; āpōpō ka whakapokea taku karu, kia tango ai i te cataract i taku karu māui, kia hōmai ai te arotahi hou (lens). He mea āhua ngāwari ki ngā tākuta i tēnei wā. He pai te karu i te taha matau, no reira,  nāwai rā, mena kua whakatika ngā mea e rua, ka whiwhi au ki te mahi test-pilot pea… He raru ki uta noa iho – kei te mōhio au he nui ake ngā raru o tēnā, o tēnā… Mauri ora tātou.

 

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.

 

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!
