Hei aha kē tēnei tūranga te Kaitiaki Taonga Māori?

 

Te Tūranga Nei 
Tīmata ai te tūranga nei, i te Hune o 2010, hei tūtuki i tētehi moemoea kua roa e wawatahia ana e te Poari Māori o konei (Tikanga Māori House) arā, he ringaringa, he waewae, he ngākau Māori hei tiaki i ngā kaupapa ā te Māori ki ō ngā Māori tikanga, ki tā te Māori kawenga; kia whakamana ai i te ahurea nui whakaharahara, kia pono ai te kōrero ā Te Puni Tiaki Taonga o Whanganui,

Koinei tētehi wāhi e whakamana ana i te kākano ruatanga.

Ka arahina, ka kōkiritia ngā āhuatanga Māori. Ki te kore he māramatanga o ngā kaimahi me ngā tūao o konei, ka whakaakohia, nā, ka noho hei kaitiaki i ngā tikanga, i ngā kawa ā Ngāi Māori i te piringa nei.

Ko tētehi atu mahi ā te Kaitiaki Taonga Māori, ko te noho hei kaitakawaenga i ngā iwi, ngā hapū, ngā whānau, ngā tāngata me te piringa nei. Māna rānei tētehi e kimi; e tohu kia tūtukihia ai ngā wawata.

Ka kōkiri kaupapa ki ngā māramatanga ō ngā tikanga Māori e tika ana, hei arahi i ngā kaimahi me ngā tūao ō roto mai nei i te Te Puni Tiaki Taonga o Whanganui, ā, ki te kore rātou i mōhio ki te tikanga, ka whakaakohia ki te tikanga.

Me pewhea au āwhina atu ai?
Inā he pātai āū, he hiahia rānei kia kōrerorero ki tētehi o te takiwā nei, engari e hiahia ana ki te kōrero ko tōū kanohi Māori nei, tēnā whātoro mai, māku koe e āwhina. Kia haere koe ki te nanao atu ki āū taonga ō roto mai nei, kia kimi māramatanga rānei, kia kimi i te ara kōkiri i āū take rānei, māku koe e tautoko, e arahi rānei ki te tangata tika inā tē taea nei e au.

FEATURED PHOTO

Dating from the 1920s, taken from Cooks Gardens looking towards Queens Park in Whanganui, the feature of this photograph is the Sarjeant Art Gallery. The Sarjeant was built with the bequest of Henry Sarjeant. When he died in 1912, he left property in Whanganui valued at 30,000 pounds ($4,697,800 in today's money) in a trust for the purposes of building and maintaining an art gallery in his memory. The Sarjeant was opened in September 1919 by the Prime Minister the Right Honourable William Massy.
