Pele, he whakapureora

Rukuwai Tipene-Allen

Pele, te atua o te kāpura, te uira, te kani,  te hau me ngā puia. Te kaitango, te kaihomai. He ātaahua, he mana.

He nui ngā ripoata kua puta i a Hawaii whai muri i te pahūtanga mai o Kilauea. He kino te nuinga heoi hei tā tēnei kainoho i Kalapana he take e pēnā ai. 'Where she's flowing right now is where the man point where Rapid Ohia death broke out and the first thing it takes out is ohia like pohutukawa so when she comes and takes out the land the first thing that grows is the ohia.' - Kapuaoluolumaikalani Peleiholani-Blankenfeld

Ko te 'mate rapid ohia' he ngangara e patu ana i ngā rākau māori o Hawaii.

Ko te whakatika i ngā kōrero mā te whakaaro taketake tētahi o ā rātou mahi nui.

'The first thing we wanted to teach on this trip was our side of the story about Pele. Don't listen to the hype perspective told by the news.' - Kalani Wilson 

Kua patua e te roopū kanikani o Kāmehameha te ika a Maui ki te whakaako, ki te whakahoahoa noki. Ka hoki atu te roopū ki hawaii whakarite ai mā te WIPCE.
