Te Tiaki Taonga i te Kāinga Tonu

Ko ētehi ō tātou e tiaki tonu ana i ā tātou taonga ake i ō tātou kāinga ake, i ō tātou marae ake, i tētehi wāhi kē atu rānei i ngā whare tiaki taonga.

Kāore au mō te kī atu, “Tēnā, tukuna mai āū taonga ki a mātou!” Engari mō tēnā! Heoi anō, kua toko ake te whakaaro kia whākīna atu he kōrero e hāngai ana ki te mahi tiaki taonga hei āwhina atu i ā koutou. Nā, he marama he kōrero hou, he marama, he kōrero hou.

Korowai


Kia papatahi te whakatakoto o te korowai i ngā wā kāore i te whakamahia, tā te mea, ka ngoikore haere te kaupapa o te korowai inā pōkaia, whakairihia ai rānei.

Ka rawe kē atu te tiaki taonga ki roto ‘pouaka waikawa kore’, ā, e ahei ana ki te hoko mai i te whare nei.

Me he pātai āū he pīrangi rānei ki te kōrero ki tētehi e mātau ana ki ngā mahi tiaki korowai, tēnā ringi mai ki Te Puni Tiaki Taonga o Whanganui nei, kia kōrero mai ki tō mātou tohunga tiaki kākahu, arā ko Trish Nugent-Lyne, māku rānei koe e āwhina – 06 349 1110.

The Wanganui Amazon Carbineers were originally called the Girls and Ladies Khaki Corps. Organised throughout New Zealand during 1900 to support and raise money for New Zealand's involvement in the South African War, members of the Corps were mostly young women from well-to-do families who dressed in military style uniforms which they had to provide themselves for a cost of 17s 6d.
