Ko Wai Mātou

Ki Tāmaki Makaurau, ki Rotorua hoki a Kaupare me wā mātou toronga ki ngā kokonga katoa o te motu. Hakoa te tawhiti, ko te here ā whānau e tuitui nei mātou kia motuhenga te tū i te reanga kamupene mātanga. Ko ēnei here e kore rawa e tuku, e kore rawa e motu. He kōrero māori mātou katoa o Kaupare. Koia pū hei kīnaki i ngā mahi katoa o Kaupare, ao noa, pō noa.

Tuia te rangi e tū nei, tuia te papa e takoto nei, tuia te muka tangata e rangitāmirohia nei, e whiria nei i roto i tō tātou whare, e ita ai te taukaea o te aroha kei roto i tēnā, i tēnā o tātou. Mauri ora!

Mai tōna pōtaetanga i Te Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau i te tau 2007, i rukutia rawatia e ia ngā puna maha i te ao Ture, pērā i te ture taihara, te ture whānau, me ngā wahanga katoa o te ture pakihi. Engari ko te nuinga o ōna wheako katoa, e pūkana mai ana i nga take Māori i Te Kooti Whenua Māori, Te Kooti Teitei Māori me Te Tairaipiunara o Waitangi. Ko ia tētahi o ngā roia e koke ana ngā kokoraho o ngā hapū, whānau me ngā kaikereme puta noa i Aotearoa.

He mema a Alana o Te Hunga Roia Māori o Aotearoa (The Māori Law Society), he tumuaki o Mua o Te Rākau Ture (Māori Law Students Association), anō hoki, mohoa noa nei, he mema a Alana o tētahi rangapū e whakahaere ana i te mana o te wahine i roto i te ao Ture. E tika ana, ko te reo te maiaorere i tuituia, i tānikotia e ō tātou tūpuna hei tāwharautanga mō ngā whakatupuranga o mohoa noa nei, o haere ake nei kia mahana tonu ai tātou i roto i te ao hurihuri. Nō reira, ko tōna whāinga matua kia māori ai Te Reo kei ngā Kooti, ngā Taraipiunara, ngā wāhi katoa o Aotearoa.

E ngākau nui ana a Alana ki te ao hākinakina, ki te ao haka, ki tōna hapū, whānau me wāna tamariki tokorua.

Nō reira, kei ngā kākā tarahae, kei ngā kēkerematua o te wao, kei ngā tātāriki o te tongarerewa tapu o tuawhakarere kua tau mai nei, ka mihi rā. Ā, ka mātua i kōnei ngā kupu whakamihia.

He toto Kuki Airani, he toto Māori anō hoki tā Apimaera. Mai tōna pōtaetanga i Te Wānanga o Tamaki Makaurau i te tau 2009, he tangata whatiwhati kō ia ki te māra o te Hauora Māori. Kua ngaki, kua hutia, kua whakaturia e ia ngā kaupapa maha e pukana mai ana i taua māra, pērā i te roopu CAYAD (Community Action Youth and Drugs), National Action Group, Kia Piki Te Ora – All Age Māori Suicide Awareness and Prevention, Kaitoko Whānau me te Whangarei Children’s Team.

Mai ēnei pōtae maha, kua taea tonutia e Apimaera te noho tahi ki ngā roopu whakahaere i roto i ngā hāpori Māori, ngā hāpori Pākehā, ki te taha o ngā Poari Hauora a Rohe hoki. Ko te kii a Apimaera, e hia kē nei ētahi o tātou e noho taharangi ana, e hukore ana ki te tautoko i ngā kaupapa Māori i te ao hauora. Me mutu tēra. E whakapono ana a Apimaera ki ngā rautaki me ngā kaupapa here i roto i te ao hauora e manawanui ana ki Te Reo me ōna tikanga. Hei ko tāna, kei reira te oranga tonutanga mā tātou te iwi Māori. E whakapono ana a Apimaera ki te hauora o ngā whānau Māori katoa, me tā rātou māramatanga ki Te Ao Māori. E tika ana te kōrero, “mā te rongo ka mōhio, mā te mōhio ka mārama, mā te mārama ka matau, mā te matau, ka ora”.

E ngākau nui ana a Apimaera ki te ao o te Taiaha/Mau Rākau, te ao whutupōro, tōna ake whānau me āna tamariki tokorua.

Nā tana putanga ā ihu i te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau ka whāia e ia ngā akoranga ki Rānana, ki Airani noki. I aua whenua rā ōnā pukenga me ōna tirohanga katoa rangiwhāwhā ai ki ngā pekanga o tēnā, o tēnā. Ā, tōia mai ēra wheako ki Aotearoa nei, ko Te Amohaere me tōnā reo māori rātou ko ngā mahi whakatairanga piri tahi ai hei hoa haere. I noho āhuru a Te Amohaere ki te ao pāpāho ki reira titia rawatia tōnā hiahia kia tū ia hei mātāmua i roto i āna mahi katoa. Kua toka rawa ia ki ngā rautaki ā waitohu, ā mahi tauhokohoko, ā ao ipurangi. Kā mutu, kua rongo marika a Te Amohaere i te angitū i roto i aua mahi. Hei mātāpono matua mōnā, ko te mauri o te kupu me tana karawhiu, koia tērā hei tauihu i ngā ara e hiahiatia nei e te tangata. Kupu māori mai, kupu pākeha mai, ko ngā reo e rua nei ka noho hei marumaru ,engari ko te reo māori, ko ia kē te tuāpapa, te pou whakawhirinaki.

Hāunga rā te mahi o te tari, kua rae tōtā a Te Amohaere ki ngā mahi o te kāinga, o te noho hoki hei māmā ki ngā tamariki tokowhā. He whānau reo māori, he whānau kapa haka, he whānau hākinakina hoki. Kia tūpato, ko te whakataetae te mutunga kē mai o tōnā pai, o tōna hianga hoki.

Mai i tōna mutunga i Te Wānanga Aronui o Tāmaki Makaurau, he nui tō Te Arepa uru ki ngā pūkenga huhua. He mata kikoha ia i te whakawhitiwhiti kōrero me te whakangāwari i ngā kupu ā-kaupapa.
