Tau ana te mihi ki a tatou katoa ngā tini o Muaūpoko. Ahakoa ngā taumahatanga kei a tatou i tēnei wā mate urutaa he wā ano hoki hei whakaarotangā ki a Ihu Karaiti. Ko ia te timatangā me te whakamutunga o ngā mea katoa. Nana ano i tēnei wā o te tau i whakakotahi ai i a tāua kia whai whakaaro ki a ia. Hei whakanui i ana mahi kei rungā i te ripeka i tona matehanga mo tātou te kaupapa tangata.
Rere tonu ana ngā whakaaro ki a koe e te tōhunga reo o Taranaki te tōhunga reo o te motu. I werohia te ture kia whakamana kia whakarangātira ia mo ngā uri whakaheke huri noa i te motu.
Tuku ano ngā whakaaro ki a koe e te rangātira o Rongamawahine me Ngāti Kuia. Tangi ana te ngākau mōu me tō whānau i te parekura nui nei.
Heoi ano hoki wairua atu kōrua ki te kainga tūturu i whakaritehia mo taua te tangāta. Koutou te ao wairua ki a koutou waiho matou ki muri nei kia kawea ai ngā mahi hei orangā mō apōpō.
From our whānau of Muāupoko Tribal Authority, we would like to let you know we are thinking about you all at this time and extend our warm greetings to everyone this long weekend of Easter. We extend our aroha and condolences rangatira and whānau who have passed during this lockdown period, and pray for strength for whānau as they grieve their loss in this time of restriction.
We also hope that, in this unusual times we are in that you all stay safe and create memories with your whānau this weekend. Please remember to stay and celebrate Easter in your bubbles, and if you are doing anything creative please share with us what you are doing.
Easter is a special time to remember the sacrifices and freedoms we are usually enjoy on this long weekend, so that we may have many more celebrations to come. Take this time to reflect, spend time with our whānau, get those jobs done around the house. If you want you can also take time to say a karakia or a gratitude.
And please remember, if you or your whānau need help or support with anything at all – no matter what – or if you have questions – please please ring us 06 3673311.
We have also found out that you can also call 1737 to talk to anyone at anytime you need a supportive ear from those qualified at listening and helping with our wellbeing
Have a wonderful Easter whānau. Stay safe, kia noho haumaru
