Ko Te Aru Rangi Reitu (Rangi) he ākonga whakatere nō Ngā Kuki Airani
Ko taku matakite i ngā tau maha ki muri nei, tērā au me taku waka kei runga i te moana. Kāre anō au kia whākī atu. Kātahi anō ka kōrerotia. I roto i taku moemoeā ko tāku, “E aha ana au i konei?” He mataku nōku, kātahi au ka mārama i te aha au i konei. Koinei te wāhi tika mōku, kāre kē ko Aotearoa. E tika ana ahau hei mema o te hapori whakatere.

He Haerenga he Whakahounga

I ētahi wāhi o Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa, erangi rawa ia i Maikaranīhia, kua pupurutia ngā mātauranga whakatere. I ētahi atu wāhi, kua ngaro kē.

Ināianei, puta noa Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa, e whakahoungia ana. He maha ngā iwi haere moana ināianei, tae noa ki ngā iwi o Hawai’i, o Tahiti, o ngā Kuki Airani, o Aotearoa, o Ngā Moutere o Māhara. E maha haere ana ngā tangata haere moana i roto i ngā waka tūturu – he kitenga i ngā mātauranga o neherā, he whakaritenga mō āpōpō. E ara ana ngā kura hou hei whakaako whakatere ki te hunga rangatahi.

I ētahi wā, ka rite ngā tikanga Pākehā – pēnei me te ako-ā-pukapuka, te tārai waka ki ngā taputapu hou, te whakatere ki te mapi me te kāpehu, tae noa ki te mau mīhini tautau me ngā poti ārahi PAPAKUPU poti ārahi - poti o tēnei wā hei ārahi i te waka hei tautoko. Kei tēnā, kei tēnā ōna whakaaro mo ēnei mea, engari e rite ana te whāinga o te katoa – kia pupuru i te mātauranga tūturu me te tuku atu ki ngā kaiwhakatere rangatahi o ngā whakatupuranga hou.
