Te mamae pai.

I tērā wiki,  ko te wiki o te reo, ā,  ko te kaupapa – arohatia te reo. I pirangi au ki te tuhia tētahi kōrero i roto i te reo, no reira…anei!  He poto tēnei, na te mea he paku noa iho tōku reo, engari ko taku wawata: mahia te reo.  Ko te whakautauki tino pai ki ahau, i tēnei wā: “Ahakoa he iti, he pounamu”

I tuhia  e ōku hoa mō te kaupapa: He aha te mea e whakamamaetia ana koe.  He aha te mea ātaahua e whakamīharo. Ko taku whakaaro  tuatahi – ko te ao tino ātaahua.  Ko ngā putiputi, ngā whetu, ngā wai, te rangi, me te rā.  He tino miharo ēnei mea.

Ko taku whakaaro tuarua – ko te marenatanga.  E aroha ana au kia kite i te kanohi o te tane, i te wā ka hikoi ōna wahine tae atu ki a ia.  E whiti ana te kanohi o te tane i roto i te aroha. 

Hei whakapi, ko taku whakaaro te reo Māori, arā ko te reo rangatira.  I tipu ake au i roto i te ao o te reo Pakeha.  I mohio au i ētahi kupu; whānau, kai, moana, kowhai.  Engari, kāore au i mārama i te nuinga o te reo.  I te tau 2009, ka timata au ki te ako.  Ahakoa e rua tekau mā tahi ōku tau, he pepi noa iho ahau, na te mea kāore anō au kia ako i te reo ō ōku tīpuna.  Ko tēnei te hurihanga o taku koiora. E ako tonu au.  Kua timata, ā, īnaianei me haere tonu ahau.  Me whaia te ao mārama, me piki ake ki te traumata.

I te wā e kōrero ana te reo, kua mahana tōku ngākau. Kua kī tōku ngākau. I roto i taku ngākau te mamae pai. No ōku tīpuna te reo tuku iho. Nā te reo e rarawhi ngā whakaaro Māori.

E kitea ana tōku whakapapa e au.  Ko te reo te mea tino nunui o tēnei haerenga.

Hei ngā rā i muri ake nei, ka pirangi au ki te tipu ake i roto i te reo Māori.

Kia mau koe ki ngā kupu o ōu tīpuna.  Tōku reo, tōku ohooho.

    Kia kaha

  2. Tenā koe Peta-Maria! Te mīharo ana au ki tēnei whakaaturanga me tō rangatira ki te reo - tō koia kē!

    Kei te noho whakamā ahau inaianei mō tāku kore whakaaro mo tēnei kaupapa te wiki o te reo - kei kapi au pea i tō whakaaro :)

    Menemene rawa au i ō whakaaro mo te marena me te ahuatanga o te kanohi o te tāne. Pēnei te kanohi o te wahine hoki, engari ki aku whakaaro ko tenei tetahi o nga wa tokoiti mena ka kite matou i tenei hohonutia o te aroha ki te kanohi o te tāne. Ki aku kitenga, tokomaha nga wā ka tangi te tāne, nā te hohonu o tāna aroha mo tāna wahine. Ki te kite i tēnei, ki aku whakaaro, he whakaata o te ahuatanga o Ihu - i te arohatia me te mokemoke o tētahi mo tētahi. He pikiti iti, pikitia hawhe hoki ō to matou atua, engari "Inaianei hoki he titiro pouriuri ta tatou i roto i te whakaata, ko reira ia he kanohi, he kanohi: inaianei e matau ana ahau ko tetahi wahi anake; ko reira ia ahau mohio ai me ahau i mohiotia ra." (1 Koriniti 13:12) (Ae, i Jesus Juke au i a koe i te reo. Ae marika.)

    Ki runga i tērā, i sentimental rawa ahau mo ēnei mea. :)

    I te wā rongo ai au i te reo, ka whakamahana taku ngakau. Ko te manu kai i te reo, nānā te ao!
