Now’s the time to collaborate.
Remember the spirit of cooperation that was there during the rāhui. Let’s hold that close. Let’s maintain it. When our vision is short term, we’re selling ourselves short. This is a chance for us to work together. Kotahitanga brings collective purchasing power, collective investment power, collective influence. That’s how we make change. That’s how we hāpai and whakamana each other. Support local, yes. Support Māori business, yes. AND, think beyond ourselves. Think bigger. Think collective. Kia tapatahi. Kia kōtahi rā. Tātou, tātou e Puritia, kia mau. Ksss hī auē, hī.
