Te Kāea

Kua whakakotahi atu tētahi tira Māori i Tāmaki ki te whare kāwanatanga o Amerika ki Aotearoa, hei taunaki i ngā iwi taketake o taua whenua e whakahē ana i te raina paipa hinu.

Koinei tētahi o nga haka maha kua whakātuhia huri noa i te motu hei taunaki i ngā iwi taketake ki Dakota.

Hei tā Benita Tahuri, “the whanau and the people have come together in solidarity to support the whanau from the Sioux nation at Standing Rock to show and express our indignity and our heartfelt compassion towards the cause that’s happening over there.

E āhua toru tekau ngā māori i Tamaki Makaurau i whakakotahi atu ki te whare kāwanatanga o Amerika ki Aotearoa hei whakaputa i o rātou āwangawanga mo te hanga paipa hinu ki Dakota.

Nā tēnei haka takitahi o tēnei tangata ki te tū pihi i Toka Tū, ā ko te haka ko Tika Tonu nō Ngāti Kahungunu, ka puta te kōingo o Ngāi Māori huri noa i te motu me te ao kia pēra.

E ai ki a Tahuri, “These decisions are going to happen and I think the world is changing and we are rising to a conscious level of unity and the time is now.

“So I’m more concerned about what we are doing and how we unite because from that power of us uniting locally and globally we can make change in the world we have technology to support that.”

E wha mano tāra te nui o te pūtea kua kohia mā tētahi tira māori kia hāere ki Dakota hei te mutunga o tēnei marama ki te tautoko i ngā kaiporotū. Ko Benita Nikora tētahi,
