8 Jul - Ngati Whatua Remembers the Time


Ko ngaa tuuru Maori te kaupapa whakahuihui taangata, engari i tua atu i ngaa tangi mo ngaa tuuru mana whenua, e tangi ana a Joe Hawke ki a Michael Jackson. 

Hei ta Joe Hawke, o Ngati Whatua, "His coming here was quite a dramatic happening, and of course our young people were here in their hundreds."

I tuutaki ai a Joe Hawke ki a Michael Jackson i te tau 1996, otiraa tokohia kee nei ngaa Maori kua kai tahi raatau me te Kingi o te Ao Waiata?

Hei ta Joe Hawke ano, "We had dinner together that night in the city and we had a good koorero about him coming to this country and him singing to our people and meeting the Maori nation."

Tuuturu, kua titia ngaa mahara ki te whatumanawa.

Joe Hawke - "He was very candid and very open, and he laughed all the time."

E kore hoki e tarea e te Mema mo te Te Tai Tokerau te huna i oona pouri. 

Hei taa Hone Harawira i noho piri ia ki te pouaka whakaata i teenei ata, ae, i heke ngaa roimata.

Hei ta Hone Harawira, "Ko ahau teetahi e tarai ana ki te waiata i aana waiata, ki te kanikani i aana kanikani, i teenei waa kua ngaro atu i a taatau, na reira me mihi atu ki a ia."

Ahakoa te pouri me uu tonu ki te kaupapa.

Hone Harawira - "I teenei waa he raa pouri, no reira a toona waa ka hiki teera pouri, ka puta mai te raa anoo, e toru, e whaa raanei ngaa tuuru Maori, ka hari te ao Maori anoo."

Moe mai raa Michael Jackson.
