WAIKATO TAINUI - NATIONAL MAAORI
HOUSING CONFERENCE 2018

HE MIHI

E taakiri tuu ana ki ngaa kupu a Kiingi Taawhiao e kii mai ana, ‘Maaku anoo tooku nei whare e hanga’. Nau piki mai! Nau kake mai!

Haere mai raa i runga i te koomuri aroha. Kia rere ngaa mihi a Kiingi Tuheitia, huihuia mai ngaa waka o te Motu. Naa taku pootiki koutou i too mai ai i te tahatuu o te rangi, kukume mai ai, whakatau mai ai. Ka noho mai ki te kupu a te Karapiture, “ki te kore te Atua i roto i te hanganga o te whare, he moumou te whare”. Haere mai e ngaa poupou ki roto i te whare o whakaaro nui!

The prophetic words of King Taawhiao are as relevant today as they were in his time ‘I shall fashion my own house’. This is our home, we bid you welcome.

We join with Kiingi Tuheitia in saying, our people, our river and our mountains are ready to host you. A passage from scripture states ‘in the spirit is not in the building of a house, the house is wasteful’. Come near oh pillars of the house of thoughtful resolve. Come near and rest awhile. For together we can fashion a house of which we will be proud. Paimaarire ki a taatou katoa.
