He puawai au nō runga i te tikanga

July 22, 2020

I am a blossom from the foundation of legacy

These are the first words of a whakataukī from Te Whiti o Rongomai of Parihaka: He puawai au nō runga i te tikanga - I am a blossom from the foundation of legacy. This week, as we think about ways to hiki wairua - lift our spirits and warm our hearts - think of those kupu and what they remind us of. Yes, it’s still cold outside… But look closely… There’s beauty… There are blossoms and buds coming up everywhere. Be observant of the small things, the new life, the glimpses of beauty in the cold. Hā ki roto, hā ki waho, and #ProtectOurWhakapapa #ProtectOurWhakapapa #Manaaki20 #BeAGoodAncestor #TūpunaWisdom
