Kia hikitia, kia hāpaitia ki te pae o whiti
Whiti, maranga mai, he ora!
Wānangahia te atua o te rangi
O te rā, o te marama, o te whetū, o te kapua, o te hau
Tātaihia ko te kawa o te rangi,
Ko te nui o te rangi, ko te hua o te rangi
Ko te paki o te rangi, ko te pū o te rangi
Ko te mana o te rangi ka tau hā,
Whakatau ko te rangi e tū iho nei
Ka tau hā, whakatau ko te whenua e takoto ake nei
Takitakina ko te kawa o Papa, ko te horanga ā-nuku, he atua!
He tipu te atua, he rākau te atua, he ngārara te atua, he manu te atua
He oneone te atua e tangi ai te mapu
I te korowai ka takapau he kawa ora!
He orangarangi, he oranganuku, he aroha nā, he kōmanawa
Rurukuhia ki te wai whakaika, ko te kawa Tangaroa, he atua!
He mātāpuna, he pukenga wai, he terenga ika, he paringa tai,
Homai te waiora ki a au, ki taiao nuku, ki taiao rangi
Ka whakairihia te kawa, homai te kauhou atua ki uta e
Tēnei te ara, ko te ara ki hea
Ko te ara ki uta, ko te ara ki tai
Ko te ara ki tua o taumata noho
Kia puta ki te whai ao, ki te ao mārama
Mārama te whakaaro
Mārama te whakatika
Mārama te whakakao
Mārama te hau, he kawa ora!Kia tīkina atu ko te kawekawe, ko te taputapu, ko te ō hei kai
He manawanui, he manawaroa, purupurutia, hereherea
Ki te rauhī, ki te rauhā, ki te rau atua o tua whakarere
Ki te rau matua o mua whakataki
Tūturu o whiti, whakamaua kia tina
Tina! Hui e, tāiki e!
Working for the iwi has highlighted numerous issues with the management of the environment including how tangata whenua rights and responsibilities have been treated or largely ignored. The cultural relationship tangata whenua has had with the environment, has been eroded. Streams treated like drains, springs and waterways run dry and water abstraction holds primacy.
Despite best efforts and Environment Court ‘success’, Havelock North was still the centre of the biggest gastro outbreak in our recorded national history and groundwater abstraction continues to increase beyond sustainable environmental and cultural limits. This demonstrates how human health and well-being is not a priority in water and environmental policy, and the examples are numerous.
Day two of the Toi Tangata Hui ā Tau 2022 is focusing on kai.
This panel brings together Jared Hiakita, Rangimārie Mules, and Tyne Marie Nelson in a discussion about kai. This panel will explore the very tūāpapa of kai Maori and pūnaha kai Māori (Māori food systems) more broadly. What tohu taiao are being observed, and what do these tohu communicate? We explore the fruits of the Māori food systems our kaikorero have been a part of and look at the hopes that they have for their hapori.
Ka ū mai a Jared Hiakita rātou ko Rangimārie Mules, koTyne Marie Nelson ki te wānanga i te kai. Ka tūhuratia e rātou te tūāpapa o te kai Māori me ngā pūnaha kai Māori me tōna whānuitanga. He aha ngā tohu taiao e tirohia ana, ā, he aha tā ngā tohu e kī mai nei? Ka kōrerotia e tātou ngā hua o ngā pūnaha kai i tupu mai ai ki ngā kaikōrero, me ō rātou wawata mō ō rātou hapori.

During this workshop Te Kawa will share some of the principle drivers of his work, which is first and foremost a journey towards better understanding whakapapa as it is expressed through taiao. What atua govern the various realms of taiao and how are these atua again reflected internally. In particular we look at Te Kawa’s close relationship with the moana, which started with his parents, and reflected in his mahi with rangatahi, and continues on to another generation as he raises his young daughter, Te Taiawatea, in close relation with the moana. Te Kawa shares some of his work alongside Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ngā Mokopuna identifying the vast roles that rimurimu (seaweed) play as kai and as a means of carbon sequestering to support climate action. Te Kawa will close with a practical session making rimurimu face or body scrub.
In this workshop Sam will share some of his formative experiences, from his early experiences hunting with his grandfather to his eventual return to the East Coast to do conservation work in his region. Sam will share some of the monitoring methodologies he uses to measure ecosystem health. Using mātauranga Māori and western science this includes observing traditional mahinga kai species such as Pikopiko, Kareao, Tawa and Kohia fruit as well as introduced species such as trout and deer. At the same time as Sam is coming to understand what it means to return our ecosystems to a state of balance, he looks at the potential of Tāne to restore balance within us as individuals and as whānau.
