THE TRANSFORMERS NGĀ POU WHAKAAHUA: KĀRETU, SMITH
At a time when the need for critical thinking has never been more urgent, meet two visionaries who have transformed approaches to education and language revitalisation. 84-yearold Tā Tīmoti Karetu (Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Kahungunu) is the godfather of the Māori language movement whose recent endeavours include work on Dame Hinewehi Mohi’s Waiata Anthems project, and the book Ma-ta-mua ko te Kupu. Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith (Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Porou, Tūhourangi) is internationally renowned for her groundbreaking Decolonising Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples and is an Honorary International Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Together with Festival Curator Māori, Moana Maniapoto, they discuss their transformational legacies.
I a tātou e matekai nui nei ki a ngāi hirikapo koi, ki a ngāi whakaaro nui, ka tūtakina tētahi tokorua matatawhiti, nā rāua i panonitia ai ngā aronga ki te ao mātauranga me te whakarauora reo. E 84 tau te kaumātuatanga o Tā Tīmoti Kāretu (Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Kahungunu), koia ko te amorangi o ngā mahi whakarauora i te reo Māori. Ko ētahi o ngā mahi i oti i a ia inā tata nei ko te whai wāhi ki te kaupapa Waiata Anthems a Hinewehi Mohi, ko tā Tīmoti pukapuka anō, ko Mātāmua ko te Kupu. Kua hau te rongo o Ahorangi Linda Tuhiwai Smith (Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Porou, Tūhourangi) ki te ao i tana pukapuka para huarahi, i a Decolonising Methodologies Research and Indigenous Peoples, ka mutu, he mema hōnore ā-ao ia o te kāhui American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Ka noho tahi te tokorua nei ki te Kairauhī Māori o te Ahurei Waituhi, ki a Moana Maniapoto, ki te kōrero mō ngā kura whakaahua kua hua i a rāua.
