Kua whakamanahia ngā kai-tuhituhi Māori

  • Te Whanganui-ā-Tara

I whakahōnore ngā kai-tuhituhi Māori i ngā kairangi o rātou, ā, ko te kaituhi i te kōrero paki mō tētahi tohunga Māori o tērā atu rautau tētahi o rātou. Inapō i tü te pō tuku taonga pukapuka a Te Kunenga ki Purehuroa i Te Whanganui-a-Tara, ā, ko te pukapuka nā Witi Ihimaera, ko Medicine Woman i puta whakaihuwaka i te wāhanga paki.

Mai i te whārangi ki te whāata, koinei ngā kupu a Witi Ihimaera kua whakatinanatia nei. I whai waahi ai te reo Māori me te reo Pākehā ki ngā tuhituhi a Witi, ā, e ai ki tenei ika-a-whiro o te pakiwaitara, mā te reo rangatira ka tāea e tētahi te oke i te Aō Māori
