Te Ao Māori

  • E kore e taea e te whenua kotahi ki te raranga i te whāriki,
    Kia mōhio ai tātou ki a tātou,
    Mā te mahitahi o ngā whenu,
    Mā te mahitahi o ngā kairaranga ka oti tēnei whāriki.
    I te otinga, me titiro tātou ki ngā mea pai ka puta mai,
    Ā tana wā hoki me titiro ki aua raranga i makere,
    Nō te mea, he kōrero anō kei reira.

"The tapestry of understanding cannot be woven by one strand alone. Only by the working together of strands and the working together of weavers will such a tapestry be completed. With its completion let us look at the good that comes from it and, in time we should also look at those stitches which have been dropped because they also have a message." - Kukupa Tirikatene
