He manawanui ki te ao

July 24, 2020

I am a blossom from the foundation of legacy

These are final words of the whakatauki from Te Whiti o Rongomai of Parihaka. He puawai au nō runga i te tikanga, He rau rengarenga au nō roto i te raukura, Ko tōku raukura he manawanui ki te ao - I am a blossom from the foundation of legacy, A herb of healing from the sacred emblem - the raukura, My raukura is an assurance to the world. And so, as we move into the weekend, take strength from these words... Be resilient, Be steadfast, Remember who we are, who we are descended of, and what that means in our lives, Have hope, because that feeds our heart, our soul, our wairua. He oranga ngākau, he hikinga wairua #ProtectOurWhakapapa #Manaaki20 #BeAGoodAncestor #TūpunaWisdom
