HE KUPU KAUMĀTUA: HAARE WILLIAMS
He kaumātua, he pū kōrero, he kaiako,he kaituhi, he ika a Whiro o te ao pāpāho, i tupu ake a Haare Williams me ōna tū puna o Tūhoe, ki Te Tai Rāwhiti, ki tētahi ao reo Māori i whai wāhi atu ai a Tāne rāua ko Tangaroa, a Te Kooti me te Kawenata Tawhito, ā, me te tiu tuangi karikari anō, tōmua i tana hū nuku ki Tāmaki Makaurau. I ngā- 50 tau nō muri mai, mā roto mai i ngā- toi Māori, i ngā mahi porotū, i te whanaketanga o te ao pāpāho Māori anō, kua whai wāhi ia ki te auahatanga mai o te ao Māori mā roto mai i te mana nui o te kupu. Ka whakamāramahia e Haare ngā rau whakapaparanga o ōna rā ki te mata o te whenua, ki a Oriini Kaipara, ka whakanuia ai ko ngā ruri, ko ngā tuhituhinga, ko ngā ma-tauranga anō e mau nei ki tana tānga o nā noa nei, ki Haare Williams: Words of a Kaumātua.
He kaupapa reo Māori tēnei
He mea tautoko na- Te Puni Kōkiri.
Kaumatua, storyteller, educator, writer, and veteran broadcaster Haare Williams grew up with Tūhoe grandparents on the East Coast in a te reo world of Tāne and Tangaroa, Te Kooti and the old testament, and curried cockle stew, before moving to Auckland. Over the subsequent 50 years, through the Māori arts movement, waves of protests, and the ascendance of Māori broadcasting, he has been involved in shaping Māoridom through the power of words. Williams distils his rich and fabled life with Oriini Kaipara, celebrating the poetry, prose and wisdom which infuses his recently published Haare Williams: Words of a Kaumatua.
Session delivered in te reo Māori.
