Kauhau: Te Pire Tiaki i Nga Kararehe o Te Moana – Hone Harawira

Te Pire Tiaki i Nga Kararehe o Te Moana
Hone Harawira, Mema Paremata mo Te Tai Tokerau
Wenerei : Rua Tekau ma Iwa o Hurae : te tau Rua Mano ma Iwa

I nga tau e rua ki muri – i te wa i haere a Taitokerau ki Orakei ki te korero mo te kaupapa o WAI 262 – ara te kaupapa mo nga uri a Täne, kei to mätou taha a whäea Saana Murray. Engari, ehara ko ia anake – e tautau mai ana i tana kaki, ko töna taonga tüturu, te anga o te pupuharakeke.

Two years ago, when Tai Tokerau turned up to Orakei Marae, to speak to the hearings for the WAI 262 claim – the indigenous flora and fauna claim – we were flanked by a little old lady in a long red dress, our aunty Saana Murray. She never travels alone – around her neck she carries the large coiled white shell of the pupuharakeke – a flax snail.
