Waewae taku haere

Ngatai Taepa 24/07/2020

Ngatai Taepa, Te Atiawa and Te Arawa, visited tauira at Pūtahi to share the new waiata we will be singing to tautoko the opening of the new whare at the Wellington Campus sometime in the future. Beautifully composed by Kura Moeahu, Te Ātiawa, the waiata shares the historic Māori landmarks of Te Whanganui-a-Tara. I have lived in Wellington for most of my life and never really knew much Māori history from the area, and I love being able to learn our history by connecting to stories about people and places I know.
