TE AO HOU

He Tika tonu te korero ra he tohunga nga iwi o nga whenua o te Moana-nui-a-kiwa penei me te Maori ki nga mahi waiata; ki nga mahi whakairo me era tu mahi. Titiro tatou ki nga whakairo, ki nga tukutuku, ki nga kowhaiwhai, a te Maori ana taonga ka mutu nga taonga whakapaipai. Ka mutu te iwi reo reka i te Maori, he iwi tau hoki ki nga mahi haka a ki nga mahi tu marae.

Kua paoho ki te Ao to te Maori rongonui mo te waiata ina a Inia Te Wiata he tangata tino rongonui ia. Ko Orewo Haddon tetahi Maori tohunga ki nga tuhi ahua. Kua tokomaha rawa atu nga taitamariki Maori kei nga kura e whakaakoako tamariki ana ki nga mahi tuhi ahua a ko etahi kua whakaputa hei tino tohunga. Ko Selwyn Wilson inatata nei ka whakawhiti ki tawahi ki te whai i te hohonutanga atu o nga mahi o enei tu mahi.

Kua whakaputa o te Maori ona tohunga ki nga mahi tito waiata o Te Ao Hou nei, ko Ruru karaitiana tera, ko Erina Kaihau ko Hemi Piripata, a ko Anania mohau nara ra te warata rengonui mo te ope taua o te whawhai nui kua taha ake nei.

Ko tenei putanga o Te Ao Hou te korero mo etahi Maori tokotoru kua whakaata ki nga mahi tiata.

He pai tonu enei korero engari katahi tonu te Maori ka whawha ki enei taonga o te ao Pakeha. Pera me te ako haka, me te akoako waiata ma te pukumahi ma te u ka tutuki pai te mahi
