Mahuru Māori: Tino Rangatiratanga, part 1 of 2

Ko te tuatoru tēnei o ngā pāhorangi, ā, e rua ōna wāhanga. Kei te pāhorangi tuarima te wāhanga tuarua o tēnei whakawhitiwhiti. Kei te whakahoki mahara a Tash Ropata ki tana ohinga ake i tētahi ao kōkiri i ngā kaupapa Māori me te pānga ki ōna whakaaro e pā ana ki te ‘tino rangatiratanga’ me te tipu hei Māori o te wā. Ko te kōkiritanga o te wā, arā, te mahere ā-iwi, Te Whakatipuranga Ruamano, i whakatakotoria e Ngāti Toa, e Ngāti Raukawa, e Te Ātiawa ki Whakarongotai hoki, tērā i whai wāhi nui i a ia e tipu ana i Horowhenua. Ko ōna hua ka noho hei tuku ihotanga ki āna tamariki, me āna mokopuna.

In the third of a series of podcasts, Tash Ropata talks about growing up around kaupapa which would shape her early opinions of tino rangatiratanga and what it meant to be Māori. Growing up in Horowhenua, Te Whakatupuranga Ruamano, a 25 year iwi development plan initiated by Ngāti Toa, Ngāti Raukawa and Te Ātiawa ki Whakarongotai (ART), would naturally play a big role in her life, with it later becoming part of the legacy she now shares with her tamariki and mokopuna.
