Ngā uauatanga o ngā ture hōu mō ngā tangihanga – Hinerangi Goodman

Hinerangi Goodman

I tēnei uiuinga, ka kōrero a Hinerangi Goodman mō ngā uauatanga o te whai i ngā ture hōu nā te kāwana i te wā o te tangihanga. Ehara i te mea e whakahē ana ia i ngā ture, e amuamu ana rānei mō ēnei mea – ka kōrero ia mō te kino rawa atu o te mate karauna – heoi anō, he pōuri tōna ngākau i te whakamahi i ēnei ture hōu.

Tuatahi, ko te uiuinga tūturu (mai i Manako, i Radio Waatea):

Tuarua, ko taku kōrero whakarāpopoto (e toru ngā mēneti):

Me te tuhinga (taku mea whakarāpopoto):

I tēnei uiuinga, ka kōrero a Hinerangi Goodman mō ngā uauatanga o te whai i ngā ture hōu nā te kāwana i te wā o te tangihanga. Ehara i te mea e whakahē ana ia i ngā ture, e amuamu ana rānei mō ēnei mea – ka kōrero ia mō te kino rawa atu o te mate korona – heoi anō, he pōuri tōna ngākau i te whakamahi i ēnei ture hōu.

I te uiuinga, ka kōrero a Hinerangi mō ngā tangihanga e rua i roto i tōna ake rohe, i te Urewera. Me iti te hunga ki reira, me kaua e tū tata ngā tāngata. Kāore i whakaaetia te harirū, te hongi, te awhi, te kihi rānei – me tutuki kaokao kē ngā tāngata i reira. Ki a ia, ka tino kukuti te tuku aroha i tēnei momo mihi ki te tangata. Ahakoa te kaha o ngā tohutohu mai i te paepae, mai i ngā kaiwhakarite hoki i te kēti o ngā marae, me te pai o ngā whakamārama, he uaua kē te whai i ēnei momo ture i te wā o te pōuritanga. Ki a ia, he raru ēnei mea ki te hinengaro, ki te ngākau, ki te wairua Māori.

Ko tētahi atu raru, ko te wewehe i ngā whanaunga e rua i mate. Kua kawea tētahi ki marae kē, kei nui atu te kaute o ngā manuhiri. He uaua tēnei ki ngā manuhiri e haere mai ana – me haere rātou ki ngā mea e rua.

Heoi anō, ko te tino kaupapa o te uiuinga, ko te pōuritanga i te kukuti i ngā momo mihi tēnā ki tēnā. Ka rangona te tino pōuritanga i tōna ake reo mō tērā āhuatanga. E ai ki a ia, “Pēhea e taea ai te kukuti i tērā āhua o te aroha? Me kī, ehara tāua i te kōhatu!“

Ngā mihi o te tau hou Māori ki a koutou!

In this episode, Rangi Matamua talks with Tumamao Harawira about Matariki. The link to the original interview on Manako has now lapsed, but the audio of the original is attached. The original interview should be quite easy for intermediate learners to follow.

The original interview:

 

And my summary (just under three minutes):

 

I tēnei hōtaka, ka kōrero a Tūmamao ki a Rangi Mātāmua mō Matariki. E ai ki a Tūmamao, kua rongonui haere a Matariki i Aotearoa, ā, he kaha te whakaae a Rangi. Ki a ia, ko te kāhui whetū o Mataraki e whai wāhi ana ināianei i te tuakiritanga o ngā tāngata katoa o Aotearoa, ahakoa ko wai te iwi, ahakoa nō hea rātou. Mō tāna ake mahi hei whakatairanga i a Matariki, he nui te wā i huri haere ia i te motu, i te ao whānui hoki, e kōrero ana mō Matariki. E hia kē ana kauhau mō tēnei kaupapa, i Aotearoa, i Ahitereira, i whenua kē hoki.

 

I pātai hoki a Tūmamao mō te huringa a ētahi o Ngāi Māori ki te maramataka tawhito o te ao Māori. He kaha tā Rangi whakaae, engari, ki a ia, he maha hoki ngā tāngata o iwi kē e whai ana i ēnei momo mātauranga o neherā. E ai ki a Rangi, ko te raru kē, nā te whai i te maramataka i mahia whānuitia (te Mane, te Tūrei, te mea, te mea), kua pakaru ngā herenga ki te tāiao, ki ngā āhuatanga o te marama. Ka mihi a ia ki a rātou e manaaki ana i ngā momo mātauranga o neherā mō ngā whetū me te marama (ko Rereata Makiha tētahi). Otirā, e ai ki a Rangi, ko te mea matua – mēnā ka whai wāhi te tangata i ēnei momo mātauranga, me kaha ake te haere ki waho. Ehara i te mea me hī ika, me ngaki māra, engari me aro ki ngā rākau, ki ngā manu, ki te tāiao i ō rātou ake tāone, i ō rātou ake rohe.

Che Wilson (Māori Party president) on the ‘wellbeing’ budget

In this interview, Tūmamao Harawira talks to Che Wilson, the new president of the Māori party, about the recent ‘wellbeing’ budget.

The original interview should be reasonably easy to follow, although Che (from Ngāti Rangi) does not pronounce the ‘h’, so (for example) ‘huri’ becomes ‘uri’.

If you find errors here, feel free to contact me and let me know!

Here is the original interview (broadcast on Manako, Radio Waatea,  on 2/6/19):

 

Here is my spoken summary:

 

I tēnei uiuinga ka kōrero tahi a Tūmamao Harawira rāua ko Che Wilson mō te tahua pūtea i puta mai ai i tērā wiki. Ko Che te perehitini hōu o te Tōrangapū Māori, o te Pāti Māori.

 

E ai ki a Che, me mihi ka tika ki te kāwanatanga mō ō rātou whakaaro mō te oranga o ngā tāngata o te motu, engari, kāore i te pai ētahi āhuatanga o tēnei tahua pūtea mō ngāi Māori.

 

Ki a ia, ko te tino raru, i tukuna pūtea ki ngā tari kāwanatanga kia whakapai ai i ngā raru o te ao Māori, kāore i tukua pūtea ki ngā rōpū Māori kia mahi ai i ēnei mahi. E ai ki ngā kaikōrero e rua, ko te whakaaro o te kāwanatanga, he pai ake te huna i te pūtea hei āwhina i te ao Māori i roto i te pūtea i tohaina ki Aotearoa whānui, kei amuamu ētahi mō te āwhina i te iwi Māori.

 

Ko tētahi atu raru, ahakoa i tukua moni mō ētahi mea, kāore i te nui tēnā kia tino pai ai ngā raru – hei tauira, ki a Che, āhua iti te moni mō ngā papakāinga – torutoru noa iho ngā whare hōu e taea te hanga, nā te iti o te pūtea i tukua. E ai ki a Che, ko te tirohanga whānui, he tino nui ngā raru i Aotearoa – hei tauira noa iho, he nui te hunga kore kāinga – otirā, he iti noa iho te rongoā i tukua e te kāwana kia pai ai ēnei raru tino nui.

Kia ora anō

Here is the original broadcast, with Eruera Morgan and Roihana Nuri, on Manako:

 

And here is my 3 minute summary:

 

And a transcript…

I tēnei pūrongo, ka hoki mai anō a Roihana Nuri, ki te kōrero mō te hōtaka ‘Q and A’ (ko te pātai me te whakautu te tikanga o ‘Q and A’). Ko tēnei te uiuinga tuatahi o te tau, ā, ko Jacinda Ardern te manuhiri i tēnei wā. Ko Roihana te kaiwhakaputa (producer) o Q and A, otirā ko Corin Dann te kaiuiui, nāna i tuku pātai ki a Jacinda Ardern.

 

I pātai a Eruera mō te uiuinga, ā, e ai ki a Roihana, he pai te kōrero a Jacinda mō ngā āhuatanga o te wā, mō ngā kaupapa a te kāwanatanga. Ki tā Roihana, kāore a Jacinda Ardern i te tino kaha ki te whakapae ko ia kē te tino rangatira o te kāwanatanga. Ko Winitana Pita te minita mō ngā take tāwāhi, ā, ka āhua āwangawanga ētahi ki tana kaha ki te whai i ōna ake whakaaro hei minita tuarua o te kāwana. Ko te tino kaupapa here pea mō tana mahi, ko te whanaungatanga o Haina me Aotearoa, otirā, e ai ki a Jacinda, he pai tonu ngā herenga o ngā whenua e rua, ahakoa ngā āwangawanga o ētahi ka kino haere  ngā herenga me te whanaungatanga.

 

I pātai a Eruera mō ētahi take e toru – mō te hauora, mō te mātauranga, ā, mō te āwhina i ngā tāngata e rapu mahi ana – nō te mea, ko te tūmanako o te iwi whānui, he pai tēnei kāwana hei tautoko “i te pani me te rawakore”. Ko tana pātai ki a Roihana, kua tutuki kāore rānei i te kāwana ngā mea i oati ai rātou i te tīmatanga. Otirā, e ai ki a Roihana, i horo tutuki ētahi mea, e tārewa tonu ana ētahi atu, ā, e ngokingoki ana  ētahi atu- he pōturi te anga whakamua o ētahi atu āhuatanga, ahakoa ngā whakaaro pai o te kāwana.

Kia ora anō! In this episode of Manako, Tūmamao Harawira talks to Maiki Sherman about the lead-up to Waitangi Day. My summary covers just the first part. Maiki may be easier to follow than some other speakers, so try listening to the original first.

Here’s my summary (it’s only 2 minutes):

I tēnei pūrongo, ka kōrero a Tūmamamo ki tētahi kairīpoata Māori, a Maiki Sherman, e pā ana ki ngā take o ngā rā i mua i te rā o Waitangi. Kei te Tai Tokerau a Maiki. E ai ki a ia, e muia ana tērā rohe e te kāwanatanga, ā, tokomaha ngā minita o te kāwanatanga i tae atu rā ki Te Tai Tokerau hei whakanui i te rā o Waitangi, ki te kōrero hoki ki ngā iwi i reira mō ngā mahi pai o te kāwanatanga mō te iwi Māori. Ko te kaupapa tino nui, i whakapuakina e te kawana tētahi pūtea hou hei whakawhanake i ngā whenua Māori. He mea whaitake tēnei mō te ao Māori, nā te mea, he uaua te whiwhi moni i ngā pēke nui (ko BNZ, te mea, te mea) nā te maha o ngā tāngata e whai pānga ki te whenua. He nui kē te pūtea i whakapuakitia – kotahi rau miriona tāra. Me whai mahere pai ngā whānau, ngā rōpū rānei e tono ana mō te moni, otirā, mā te wā pea, ka whai hua tēnei pūtea hou.

Kia ora anō – this is the third of an ongoing series of simplified summaries of reo Māori broadcasts, taken from the programme Manako on Radio Waatea. More details here about Te Matatini. Try listening to the original

Here’s the original broadcast, from Manako on Radio Waatea (31.01.19):

And here’s my summary, in te reo Māori:

 

Kei te mōhio pea koutou, ko Te Matatini te taurima e whakanui ana i ngā toi Māori, ā, ko te mea nui i reira, ko te kapa haka. Ka tū tēnei taurima ia rua tau, ā, i tēnei tau ki Te Whanganui a Tara. He tino whakataetae tēnei, ā ka kitea i reira ngā tino taumata ikeike o te kapa haka.

I tēnei hōtaka ka kōrero a Paraone Gloyne mō ōna whakaaro mō Te Matatini. Kua tino mōhiotia a Paraone Gloyne mō tana whakatairanga i te Mahuru Māori, me tana ū ki te reo Māori i ngā wā katoa o tērā marama, o Mahuru, o Hepetema.

Ko tō Paraone tino wawata, kia tino Māori ai tēnei taurima, nō reira, ki ōna whakaaro, me reo Māori, reorua rānei ngā āhuatanga katoa o Te Matatini, ahakoa ngā wāhi hoko kai, he aha, he aha. Ki a ia, he ngāwari te tū ki te atamira, e reo Māori ana mō ngā meneti rua tekau, otirā, mēnā ka tino Māori ai te tuakiri o ngā kaiwhakataetae  i ngā wā katoa, ko te reo Māori tētahi tino āhuatanga o te tuakiri Māori. Ki a ia, mēnā mā te kōrerotia o te reo ka ora ai te reo, me whakatairanga te reo Māori i tēnei hui taurima.

Otirā, ko tetahi āhuatanga nui, me tautoko ngā tangata iti te reo ki te korero. Nō reira, kua whakaritea ētahi rauemi āwhina, ā, ka haere atu ki reira ētahi tangata kaha ki korero, hei akiaki, hei āwhina hoki i te hunga kore reo Māori, iti rānei te reo Māori. Ko tana ingoa mō tēnei whakaaro, ko Te Mitatini. Ko te ingoa Te Matatini, ko ‘many faces’, ā, ko Te Mitatini, kia tino rangona te mita o te reo i te taurima nei.

post

Tēnā koe! I’m a semi-retired reo Māori  teacher – most recently at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, in Dunedin.

I’m Pākehā – my parents were born in Aotearoa, but my ancestors came from Germany and England.  I’ve worked as a reo Māori teacher at secondary level, and taught adults at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa (2019 -2020). I received a PhD in Māori studies in 2018, looking at adult learning of te reo Māori.

I don’t claim to be an expert at te reo Māori – in fact, I have a reo Māori blog under the name of “Āhua mōhio”, which means “I’m reasonably knowledgeable,” or “I know a fair bit.” However, I do have a good working knowledge of te reo Māori; I speak it regularly, and  listen to it and read it a good deal. I also have a good idea of how adults learn, and I’m keen to help them get into the swing of speaking te reo Māori and using it as a means of communication. I’m semi-retired now – I run short courses, do some private tuition – and do ‘Kōrero Poto,’ of course.

I recommend Māori Made Easy, by Scotty Morrison, as a beginner text. It’s crammed with good information, has answers in the back, and is excellent value for money (about $35).

Mauriora rā!
