Some say 7 stars, some say 9.
Some say 7 stars, some say 9. Some say it’s Puanga, some say it’s Matariki. Some say Tāne, some say Tāwhaki. But there’s only one sky. The difference is the location from which you view the sky. And that creates our world view, our perspective. Once we understand that, we can have a lot more empathy and understanding and acceptance of each other’s views. Ko tō piki amokura, nōu. Ko tōku piki amokura, nōku. Your house of learning is yours. My house of learning is mine. Neither is right or wrong. Both are to be cherished. It’s not a competition. In this world where we’re recognising the dire need to celebrate diversity and inclusion, just know, #TūpunaWisdom tells us the same. Tātai whetū ki te rangi. #ProtectOurWhakapapa #Manaaki20 #BeAGoodAncestor #TūpunaWisdom
