Haruru Ana

Ko tātou tēnei e tautāwhi ana, e raupī ana te haumanutanga o te reo Māori kia renarena te taukaea. Heoi i runga i tēnei kaupapa whakahirahira kātahi anō tētehi toki whakaora i te reo ka whakanui i tōna rā whānau waru tekau. Ko Te Huirangi Waikerepuru tētehi i whakapeto ngoi kia whakamana e te kāwana i tēnei puiaki. Nā tōna mahi i te taha o te roopu hui whakapūmau i te reo, kua pārekehia tēnei taonga ki te kōpū o Taranaki whānui, ki te poho o te whenua huri noa.

“Kia maia kia toa kia manawanui ki te kaupapa o tā tātou reo. Kāore he kōrero kē atu. Mā te kōrero ka rangona. Kaua e whakaeke kōrerotia te reo. Kaua e whakahihi, kōrero pai tō reo. Kanohi Māori kia kaha ki te kōrerotia te reo Māori. Ngā mea matatau ki te reo Māori kōrerotia te reo.”

Nā reira e tika ana ngā kōrero ‘kaua ma te waewae tūtuki engari mā te Ūpoko apā anō’ kia kore ai i memeha tō tātou reo rangatira.

E te poutoko hāpai i tēnei taonga, haruru ana te rongo pai nei e horahia nei e te reo, ki runga i ngā iwi o te motu nei!
