Kōrero: Matariki – Te Tau Hou Māori

Te Whakanui i a Puanga

I tēnei ataata, kua huihui a Ngāti Rangi ki Ruapehu ki te whakanui i a Puanga i te 2019. Pērā i a Matariki, he wā a Puanga e hoki ai ngā mahara, e whakaritea ai, e whakanuia ai te tau ka takoto ake. He huarahi tēnei mō te iwi me te hapori ki te whakahōnore i tō rātou maunga, e whakamaharatia ai te hunga kua riro, e titiro whakamua anō ai ki te tau hou.

Hei tā te kaumatua nei a Che Wilson, “I ngā rā o mua i te wā o te makariri i haere mātou [a Ngāti Rangi] i te Awa o Whanganui ka noho ki te mātaki i te aranga ake o Matariki, heoi, ko Puanga kē ka kitea. Nō reira ka titiro mātou ki a Puanga, koia kē ngā whetū ka ārahi i a mātou."
