He tākuta karu e mahi ana kia kitea e koro mā, e kui mā

Rukuwai Tipene-Allen

Ko tā te pō tuku taonga a te roopū whakawhanake wāhine he whakamōhiohio, he whakatairanga i ngā wāhine e mahi ana ki te whakawhanake i ō rātou hapori. Ko te kaiwhakahaere o Occhiali Optometrist, ko Renata Watene tētahi kua tonoa ki te whakatatae mō āna mahi me Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei kia whai mōhiti ngā kaumātua kuia o te iwi.

Tekau tau tēnei tohu e noho ana i roto i te pouri inaia kua kitea ano. Hei tā Watene, e pai ana ia i te mōhio e whai whakaaro ana ki ngā mahi papai ki a ia.

Inā ko te whakatakanga a Renata Watene he āwhina i te hunga kāpō ki te hou atu ki te māramatanga.

Rua tekau mā whitu ngā kaumātua kuia kua tae atu ki te aromatawai i ō rātou karu erangi kāpātao i te take ka pā ki te hunga pēperekou anahe, ka kite i te hunga rangatahi tonu. 

Ko te mahi he whakamatautau i nga kuia kaumatua me pehea te manaki te ripoata, me te kōrero e whai oranga ai o ratou karu.

Hei tā Watene, 'e rua anahe ō karu, e kore e pai te mārama ki ā rāua mahi nui whai muri i tā rāua pōtanga.

Hei te Hatarei e tū mai nei  whakataki atu ai te minita whakawhanake Māori i te pō tuku taonga ki te Whanganui ā Tara, ki Te Papa Tongarewa.
