He wahine Māori kua whai wāhi ki tētahi whakataetae o te aō

Mere McLean

Rua tekau ma ono ngā tau o Hannah Paul, e eke ana i ngā ngaru nui o te ao. Ki raro o te whakaminenga o nga iwi o te ao, kua mau i a ia te mana ki te tu mō Aotearoa, a, kāre he kupu i tua. 

Hei tā Hannah Paul, “He moemoea te tu hei māngai mō Aotearoa, taku turangawaewae, me te mea nei, he Māori ahau.”

Ko te wa tuarua tēnei mō Hannah te tu hei kanohi mō Aotearoa ki roto i tēnei whakahuinga, he tuahuatanga e tāria nuitia ana e ia.

I tua atu i a ia, tokowha te hunga ka hāere ki tōna taha hei matiro i ngā taitara Miss, Mrs me te Mr United Nations i roto i te whakataetae. 

Hei tā Hannah, “He tika, kia whai koe i o moemoea, kaua e whakamā, na te mea he nui tonu tatau te Māori e whakamā ana.”
