Kōrero: Te whakakata

‘Kapa Haka’, nā Michael Parekōwhai

‘Kapa Haka’, nā Michael Parekōwhai

I whakamahi te pūkenga toi nei a Michael Parekowhai i tana tuakana a Paratene (he kaihaumaru) hei tauira mō tana kohinga whakapakoko kaka kōata 15 nei, e rite tonu ana te nui ki te tangata. E kīa ana tēnei kohinga ko ‘Kapa haka’. Nō te tau 2003 ka whakaatu tuatahitia ki tētahi whare toi ki te huarahi o Karangahape ki Ākarana. E kī ana te kaitātari kōrero toi a Justin Paton, ‘Hetokomaha atu ngā kaihaumaru kei ngā pēke me ngā karapū pō o Karangahape i ērā o ngā whare toi whai rawa, ka pūpū ake ngā tōrangapū i te kite atu tokorima rātou e tūtei tahi noa ana ki te rūma kotahi. Inā whakanōhia ki te whare o ngā kaikohi toi whai rawa, kātahi ka rerekē rawa atu –ko te uaua parauri e haumaru ana i te rawa kiritea mō te utu pīnati noa iho.’
