Te Reo Whakahoahoa #5

A recount in te reo Māori forms part of what I have to do for my assignments, as well as the upcoming exam. Me parakitihi au 🙂

I te wā whakatā, ka ako au i a Tāne ki te tunu, ā, ka ako ia i a au ki te whakatangi i te kīta. Ka whakaako ia i a au ki te waiata Takawirihanga.  Ka pīrangi ia ki a au ki te puoro, engari ka whakamā au.

The waiata is about the whakapapa of the Poi and seems appropriate as we have been learning about whakapapa in class too.

I waenganui pūharakeke ahau
Whakarongorongo ana ki ngā hau
Oho ana toku wairua
Oho ana toku wairua

Ki ngā takawirihanga o te poi
E mīreirei ana ka toko
Te whakaaro i ahu mai koe i hea
Te whakaaro i ahu mai koe i hea

Nā Io Matua kore
Ka noho e a Whaea Rikoriko
Ka puta ko ngā Ao, ka puta ko ngā Pō

Ka puta ko Ranginui, e tu iho nei
Ko Papatūānuku, e takoto nei
Piriana rāua
Ka puta ko Tāne Mahuta, ko Tāne Mahuta

Nā Tāne Mahuta ka moe i a Pakoki
Ka puta ko Harakeke, Ka puta ko Harakeke

Nā Tāne Mahuta ka moe i a Repo
Ka puta ko Raupō
I a rāua tahi
Ka puta ko Muka, ko Taura, ko Here, ko Awe
Ka tae mai ki a koe e Poi

Ehara to mana
I te mana i takea no nanahi
Engari to mana
No tua whakarere
No tua whakarere
Āke ake ake tonu atu
