"Kāhore te kumara e korero ana mo tōna reka"
The kumara does not brag about its own sweetness
This weeks whakatauki was explained by Ken Keneti (nō Ngāti Pikiao)
For Māori it’s about water. For the Government it’s about reducing overseas debt. Victoria University Law lecturer Carwyn Jones (who was at the Wellington consultation hui with Māori) outlines how the provisions for Treaty principles, in section 9 of the State Owned Enterprises Act 1986, are affected by proposed changes to legislation to enable the partial sale of power companies.
When the Fourth International Conference of the Elders of Ancient Traditions and Cultures takes place in India in March they will be joined by a delegation from Rotorua that includes Malcolm Short, Director of the Rotorua based Māori Research Institute, senior scientist Dr Guna Magesan and Kaumatua, Ken Keneti. Keneti explains how tikanga Māori stacks up against its peers.
Some artists let their work speak for them while others, like James Molnar lets his personality do the talking. Justine Murray is entertained by him at the largest annual gathering of contemporary Māori artists, Māori Market 2011.
Waiata featured: Comforter performed by Tama Waipara from the album Sir Plus and the Requirements (2009), Way we live performed by Tama Waipara from the album Lewis McCallum Wake (2007).
