Mere Pōhatu Okoro – Intentions Defined Today Today, as I write, is a day where intentions are defined, the pathways ahead are clear and I need to take heed of nature’s unpredictable moods. I will keep this in mind as I work through to Turu, 30 December when I know calm and beauty approaches. I thought of this Maramataka written up by Wiremu Tawhai in a beautiful book called "Living by the Moon". Today I went to visit the people at STAND; Tu Maia. This is an East Coast Village. It’s near Rugby Park in Tūranga. Some of my vintage knew this as the Health Camp. My best neighbour Matua Rick Paenga is the Regional Manager. He has one of the most interesting assembly of human resources I have come across. They love their work. They love mokopuna. And they are experts in their field, therapeutic care and education journey for vulnerable children. This is all about dealing with trauma. Trauma attacks our brains. Trauma means we can’t stand straight and proud. We wilt because something terrible has happened to us. We retreat to a dark side of ourselves. We are mean and really naughty at school, that is if we go. These are our mokopuna I am talking about. Everyone wants to manage our behaviour and discipline us. Not so, once we get a referral to Stand. They are into healing the brain. I love that they refer to the key components of whānau wellness. They reference Sir Mason Durie’s work to anchor their programme.

Meka Whaitiri

I want to send a huge mihi to the victims, whānau pani, Iwi, first responders and East Coast communities affected by the Whakaari tragedy. To the victim’s families, the awhi of Tairāwhiti is strong. Our aroha and prayers are truly with you. No parent should lose a child in such a way, let alone at this time of year. If you are travelling, keep in mind that, as I write this, the rāhui Ngāti Awa, Te Whānau ā Apanui, Te Ūpokorehe and Te Whakatōhea have placed in their respective takiwā to honour the whānau and protect the mauri of the area, are all still in place. I especially want to acknowledge ngā uri o Ngāti Awa for the lead role they took in the disaster response. Having local Iwi front press conferences and more, showed the world that the partnership on which Te Tiriti is formed is a beautiful thing when it is actually put into practice. I challenge all our community businesses and organisations to make ‘partnership’ our kupu of 2020 in order to accelerate greater understanding, wellbeing and economic development in our rohe. One significant step in this direction is when Health Minita David Clark announced his ministerial appointments to our District Health Boards. By focusing on the right skills to further rebuild our previously underfunded system, there is now the biggest Māori voice ever at the top tables of our public health service. Forty three of 76 new appointments to the Health Boards, and four of 13 appointed chairs, are Māori. Tairāwhiti is a key part of this record-breaking result with Kim Ngārimu the first wāhine Māori chair of the Tairawhiti Health Board. I am confident she will disrupt the status quo and make a noticeable difference towards improving

health outcomes for local Māori. This level of appointments is a good start in the right direction for all public entities and one for which the Labour Māori Caucus continues to advocate hard. Speaking of which, this Government has officially apologised to our Maungapōhatu whānau for the wrongful imprisonment of Rua Kēnana and the lasting damage that was inflicted on their wairua and mana. While the apology has taken too long to occur, I am proud that the Labour Māori Caucus enabled things to be set right so that the healing process can begin. Thousands of local kids will benefit from this Government’s move to give nearly every state school $693 per student with a minimum of $50,000 per school so they can catch up on repair wish lists neglected by the previous Government. Two hundred and thirty schools, wharekura and kura in Ikaroa-Rāwhiti will share over $37 million to help 55,045 local tamariki reach their full potential. That’s fantastic. From Gisborne Girls and Boys High Schools getting $400,000 each to Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Horouta Wānanga receiving $118,503 and plenty more. This overdue action will also create jobs for our people. Speaking of mahi, the Labour Māori Caucus is committed to growing incomes amongst our Hapū and Iwi. We have supported our Government to raise the minimum wage every year we have been in power and on 1 April 2020 it is rising again, to $18.90 an hour. This extra $48 a week will improve the wellbeing of so many whānau Māori forced to do too much with too little for too long and entice more people into work at a time when Aotearoa is already enjoying record low levels of unemployment. Summer in Te Tairāwhiti is unlike any other. Enjoy the kaimoana, warm weather and time with your whanaunga but, most of all, stay safe on those roads and in our waters. Your whānau need you here for what will undoubtedly be a big 2020. Miri kirihimete!

They have a beautiful complex. They deserve our support. Simply because they take each child on a 5-week journey of re-discovery of how to learn, how to be appropriate in the right space, how to regain confidence and be confident. You can feel their passion for their work.

Advocate hard out for our mokopuna. Care big time. Please don’t let our mokopuna go around drunk, drugged and fried idiots. Our mokopuna matter and they, along with their brains, have such a lot of learning and development ahead of them.

We need lots more of this approach to wrap around our whānau. They, at Stand, are always on the look-out for that one significant adult in the whānau who can be the meaning and safety for our mokopuna. Sometimes that responsible significant adult is hiding, maybe even hovering and doesn’t actually realise he or she is it.

In the long-run Rick and his crew at STAND should ideally be out-of-work. However I can tell you that will not be in the immediate nor short-term future. They are here for the longhaul simply because too many of our adults aren’t putting our mokopuna and their safety and well-being first.

It’s going into Christmas now. Then New Year. Think about this folks, lots of our mokopuna are going to be in unsafe places with stupid adults. A time of joy can quickly fall into being a time of despair. A time to celebrate can quickly develop into a time of abuse and violence.

It’s a bit of a downer this talk. But it’s so good to know there are a few safety nets out there. And of course, there are all of us reading Pīpīwharauroa who can be on the alert and watching carefully across our whānau over the holiday season.

Who is that significant adult? It’s time for you to stand up and be there for our mokopuna.

Ngā mihi o te wā kia koutou. Mā te Runga Rawa e tiaki e manaaki i ngā wā katoa.

Nōu te Ao!

E kore e taea te kaute ngā tohungatanga o Tūteari Te Rauna Lamont. Kua tohua ia hei Kaitātaki Matua mo te kura o Tūranga Tāne mo te tau e heke mai nei (2020). He tamaiti koi a-tinana, koi a-hinengaro, koi a-wairua hoki. Ahakoa hāngai ana ki te aronga whakamua ki tōna ao hākinakina te mātāmua o ōna whakaaro ki tōna ao Māori, te kapa haka me tōna reo rangatira kia tika. Otira he toki i te ao hākinakina, pēra anō hoki ki ana mahi o te mātauranga, nā reira whakapōtaetia ana hei Kaitātaki Matua mo te kura. Ko tōna tīmatanga ki te tākaro whutuporo i te tīma o YMP, ono tau te pakeke, ka eke atu rātou ko ana hoa ki te reanga o te iwa tau tae noa ki te tekau ma toru tau.

E ai ki a ia, nā tana matenui ki tana reo me te tātai whika i puta ai ana mahi. Nā whai anō i huri ai ki ngā akoranga pākihi me te pai hoki ki ōna whakaaro, ā tēra pea he painga a te mutunga.

Pipiwharauroa He Raumahara

The following is reprinted from the 2005 editions of Pīpīwharauroa and is continued on from last month's edition

Buddy Eru Mahia Smith During the 1980s it was recognised that the shearing industry had a major role to play in the economy of the country and new skills had to be Iearnt and applied to ensure high quality fleeces and maximum prices for the raw wool. To run a successful gang a contractor has to have good people, communication and social skills as well as fit and skilled workers and shed hands who can sustain the pace, as a contractor you had to look after your gang. I also shore at Waipaoa Station for four years and took on contract work for the Catchment Board, pole planting and building dams. In the off season I contracted to Mangatū, where I completed miles and miles of fencing and built sheep and cattle yards. During all that time I taught a lot of young people a whole range of different skills. At this point I would like to sincerely acknowledge the Proprietors of Mangatū 1, 3 & 4 Blocks, Committee Members, the Mangatū office staff, farm supervisors, managers and station staff for all their support over the many years I worked for and contracted to Mangatū Incorporation. My life has always been very active. I started my rugby career in 1952 when I played for Waipata. From there I joined Mangatū then changed over to Whatatutu in 1967. I also played representative rugby for Poverty Bay from 1963 to 1971, Poverty Bay and East Coast from 1965 to 1966 and for the Takitimu Māori team. During that time I played against many overseas teams including South Africa in 1965, British Isles in 1966 and Japan and Fiji.

land has stabilised with the pines. I was also very competitive in wood chopping as a member of the Whatatutu Axeman's Club where I won team trophies in the Poverty Bay, Wairoa and Hawkes Bay chopping circuits. Many individual trophies were also won by members of the Wainui, Smith and Henry whānau.

I even still found time to take on the duties of a Māori warden and, as the Ringatū Hāhi still remained a major part of my life, I became ordained as a Minister for the Wairua Tapu in 1979 at the Marae along with Matua Brown. Our Pou was Tupai (John) Ruru.

Uncle and Auntie with their moko Tui Reeves (Smith) and mokopuna tuarua

All of us menfolk managed to fit in a rugby career, chopping competitions and our mahi, fortunately our wives and girlfriends were right behind us. When Albert Horsfall came back in the 1980s as Supervisor for Mangatū Blocks we took up from where he had left off when he had previously. been working with us. Some things had changed though, everything was going faster and I found I had to employ two gangs for docking. Where it used to take two weeks to dock one station our time was cut back to a week. We were docking 2,000 lambs a day; imagine all those lamb tails and mountain oysters! With the support of the Kaumātua I tutored the Mangatū Kapa Haka group and we competed from 1950 to 1986. There was generally four or five Mangatū managers performing with us and most of the community activities were run under the Kapa Haka group's umbrella. This involved me in the College and School committees, Marae Committees, Māori Women's Welfare League, Youth Groups and the Māori Executive and, as you could imagine, a lot of fundraising. Both Albert Horsfall and Bill Te Kani also played key roles at the school and the Marae.

In 1972 I became a councillor on the Waikohu County Council, representing the In 1967 our combined Waipāoa/Whatatutu Mangatū Riding. I remained there right up rugby team made quite a mark in the district to 1987 when the local county councils were and we were even joined by the local disbanded, it was a great farmers. In 1968-69 we were experience. Prior to 1987 at the top of the rugby ladder Māori only had three or and Whatatutu farmers like four paragraphs within the Bob Coates started to sit up Waikohu District Scheme so and take notice. It gave our we called in a consultant district a higher profile and to develop further policy there was always plenty of for Māori. work locally for the players thanks to Albert Horsfall. Following negotiations over two to three years we Even after he left the achieved three pages of district we were still very supportive integrated shearing, docking, fencing, policy that provided yard making and pole for Te Ture Whenua and planting for the Catchment recognition of Papakainga. Board as erosion was the big concern at the time.

the amalgamation of all the East Coast; Gisborne and Waikohu County Councils' into the Gisborne District Council. Another great event around that time which I was involved with happened in 1983 when we moved the Mangatū Marae from Pakowhai to its current site; that was just before Bola hit the district. In 1974 our Kapa Haka roopu went to Waitangi. We had a joint practice with the Waihirere group, it was awesome in those days. While I was there I saw this waka and really wished that I could go on it. However it was not untit 1990 that my dream became a reality when Toko Te Kani managed to secure us a fibre glass waka which became known locally as the 'plastic fantastic.' Toko approached me to train the Kai Hoe in Haka Taparahi, Kura / Ti Waka, Tikanga and Kawa for the waka which was formally named Te lka-Nui-ā-­Rauru. We trained using the Marae forms and all sorts of people came to join us. Gang members left their patches behind - to come onto the Marae, it was definitely one of the best training programmes I have been involved in. Before we went to get the new waka from Mercer the kaumātua made me the captain. Over there we practised on the Waikato River to get our sea legs and once our waka was ready to launch I blessed it with water I had taken from Mangamāia, Mangatū and the Mouth of the Waipāoa Rivers. What a magnificent sight it was, it was the waka we used at the 1990 celebrations. We were the Marker for the other twenty eight waka. Queen Elizabeth II was coming on her craft and the Ngātoki-Mata-Whaorua was going to pick her up. When we were given the signal we started the Armada which formed a Guard of Honour on each side of the main waka coming through.

We started out shearing with Uncle Steve Wainui on Omapere Station. To reach it we had to cross the river on a swing bridge which was a quite an experience. Boy, did those heavy loads cause the bridge to swing and sway. After Omapere we headed to Te Hua where the cooking was done over an open fire. These were two amongst many sheds we worked back then. The shearers were Ned Ruru, Buddy Smith, Kiri Wainui, Sam Wainui, Peter Houia, Ma Te Maipi and Tata Wainui and the fleesos included Nancy Ruru, Ema Peneha, Phyl Smith, Thelma Houia and Joy Rodgers. Manny was the pressman and Auntie Sarah the cook.

Newman. We travelled on horse and buggy. Just imagine heading back to work right after Christmas Day. After we left Uncle Steve’s shearing gang we ended up working for Peter Edwards which was a real experience. He took a pig and a cow to each shed where his wife fed the pig and milked the cow. Buddy Smith took over from Peter and continued the shearing run on Omapere and Te Hua as well as Wairere, Riki, Dome, Tāhu, Te Apiti, Okaihau, Waitangirua and Tapere. We also did some shearing at Waiohika and Awapuni. We also shone at Moonlight for Chris Spence where there was a 14 stand shed, seven on each side. We were joined by two shearers from overseas, Colin McGregor from Scotland and Robin from England. Nā, Phyllis Smith

Pipiwharauroa Nga Tama Toa

Tera e whara te tank mehemea e puhia atu ana mai i te taha, kia hangai tika ki nga 'tracks; engari he tino uaua te whakatinana i tenei ahuatanga. I ata haere ai te tank nei, na nga kariri tekau ma rua i whakapaua atu ra ki runga ki te tank ra. No te ata haeretanga o te tank ra, katahi a Jacky Baker ka kokiri atu ki te tank ra.

Ko tēnei kōrero e pā ana ki te pukapuka rongonui nei, ara Ngā Tama Toa: The Price of Citizenship. Kei te whakamāoritia ngā kōrero, ā, ko Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Porou kei te whakahaere i te kaupapa nei, i raro anō o te mana i tukua mai e ngā mōrehu o C Company o Ngā Taonga a Ngā Tama Toa Trust. Nā Wiremu and Jossie Kaa i whakamāori tēnei wāhanga.

(Continued from last month)

Ki ORSOGNA No te taunga o C Company ki te tauhiwi, ka puhipuhia mai a 13 Platoon e nga Tiamana.Heoi, kare tonu i roa, ka raru i nga roopu hoia o Ngati Porou me Te Whanau-a-Apanui nga Tiamana. Katahi ka whakawhiti atu a 13 Platoon i te rori, a, katahi ka timata te kari i nga rua whakaruru mo ratau, ki te taha tonu o te ara o te tereina. Kare a 14 me 15 Platoon i wehe mai i to ratau taha o te rori. Rima karaka i te ahiahi, kua tae a Capt Awatere me nga hoia o H.Q ki te awa o Moro. Ko ta ratau mahi he to a tinana i nga anti-tank guns ki nga pari maunga o Pascuccio, hei awhina i nga hoia o te infantry. I nga hoia e whakapau ana i wo ratau kaha ki te to i nga taura kua herea atu ki nga pu nei, ko Awatere kei tahaki e tataki atu ana i te haka to waka, ara, a 'Toia mai' hei whakakaha, a, hei whakapakari i nga wairua o nga kaito. Engari, tureiti rawa nga pu nei, no te mea, kua tu a tinana ke a 13 Platoon ki te aroaro o nga tanks a te hoariri, e haere tika mai ana ki te raupatu ano i nga wahi i raupatutia ra i a ratau. Ahakoa kare i te tino kaha te tiaho mai o te marama, ka kitea marakerake tonutia atu e korara mai ana nga mata o nga pu a te hoariri. E haere tahi mai ana nga hoia o te hoariri i te taha o wa ratau Panzer Tanks - he 'Flame Thrower' tetahi o aua tank ra. E haere tika mai ana aua tank ra ki te waahi kei reira ra a C Company. Ki nga korero a 2/Lt Jacky Baker, ko tana Platoon te papa 0 te pakanga nei, kare koa ko nga hoia kei nga kapa o mua o te ope taua (a, no Te Whanaua-Apanui nga hoia nei). Ko ratau nga mea i tino whara, i nga leading tanks a nga Tiamana. I takahi kinotia ratau e nga 'tracks' o nga tanks nei, a, e puhia mai ana ano hoki e nga pu mihini me nga pu nunui a nga Tiamana. Katahi a Maioha Honana ka puta ake i tana rua, ka oma atu ki te rori, a, ka timata ki te pupuhi atu i tana Piat mortar, ki te tank kei mua e haere mai ana. Ko wana hoa e tiro makutu atu ana, me te ohorere hoki, no te mea ahakoa te nui o nga kariri e puhia atu ana, kare i whara te tank ra. Na Pat Kaa nga whakaaro mo taua ra. Anei ana kupu e mea ana: 'Te tino kore take o nga purari pu nei. Paku noa nei te panga atu ki te tank, engari kare i pahunga i te Piat mortar!'

Tino tata tonu mai nga tanks nei ki a matau, a, ko au e tu tapapa ana i raro i wa ratau pu, kia kore ai awau e whara ina puhia mai e nga pu nei. Katahi ka ngoki atu awau i taku trench kia tu ki te taha o te tank kei mua e haere mai ana, a, katahi ka whakapiritia atu e wau he Hawkins grenade ki runga i te track o te tank nei. No te haere whakamuatanga o te tank nei, katahi ka puhia nga tracks o te tank nei ki raro. Ka tutu mai nga tanks e whai mai ana i te mea kua ehara ra nga tracks i waku grenades. Na konei ka watea mo matau ki te hikoi whakamuri. I whakarerea e Baker tana rakau apiha ki tana rua puhipuhi. He rakau he mea whakairo na te kaumatua na Takanini i tana penknife i a ia ka noho ki te parani o te whare o te whanau i Otanga, kei Mangatuna. Nana tonu i hoatu taua rakau ki a Baker i mua i tana wehenga mo rawahi. I runga ano i tana mohio kare ke he painga o nga raiwhara me nga Brenguns a C Company ki nga tanks a nga Tiamana, ka puta te ota a Capt Wirepa ki nga hoia kia whakarerea o ratau nohonga. Otiia, ki ta Pat Kaa, he rereke te ota a Wirepa ki a ratau, ara: I kii mai a Tutu Wirepa ki a matau kia kaua e neke, engari kia u tonu ta matau noho. E oma whakamuri ke ana matau no te mea, ka whiti atu koe i te rori, he paripari kei reira. I whakaaro matau ki te oma kia kore ai matau e mauheretia, engari, ka mea mai a Wirepa ki a matau kaua e neke engari me u ta koutou noho! E hika ma, no te wehenga atu o Wirepa, ka mauheretia matau e te hoariri. Tokoono matau i mauheretia. Ko nga tangata i mauheretia i te taha o Kaa ko Honana, ko Walter Rowlands, ko Bear Koia, ko Eru Tuhoro, ko John Gerrard me Buick Green. I mate a Rongo Peta no te roopu o Te Whanaua-Apanui. Ka marakerake te kitea atu o tetahi o nga tank e haere tika tonu ana ki te rua o Stan 'Jinx' Hovell. Ko te hiahia a te tank nei ko te whakamate i te tangata kei taua rua e noho mai ana. No te tahatanga o te tank ra i te rua o Jinx, ka tino pa te oranga ngakau ki wana hoa, i tana putanga mai i tana rua me te ruru haere i te puehu i tana tinana, penei me te pikaokao nei. Katahi a Hovell ka korero mo tana waimarie no te mea, tino tata rawa atu te tank ra ki tana tinana. I penei rawa ai te tata no te mea kare ano kia hohonu noa tana rua whakaruru. Me kii pea, rima tekau paiheneti noa te hohonu o tana rua, i mua i te pautatanga mai o te tank ra ki tana rua. No te mea kare ano kia hohonu noa tana rua, kare i ngaro pai tana tinana ki roto i tana rua. Ka mea a Hovell:

I te haerenga mai o te tank ra ki taku rua, ka timata te totohu haere o nga taha o taku rua i te taumaha tonu o te tank ra. E ora ai awau, na taku whakakoromeke i taku tinana me waku waewae. Tata tonu awau i te takahia e te tank ra. Ko te mate tonu e piri tata mai ana ki au i taua wa tonu. Ka whakahemo awau i a au ano, no te mea kare ke he huarahi ke atu e watea mai ana ki a au. E tiro whakararo mai ana te apiha Tiamana ra, ki a au. E tiro korotaha atu awau ki te pokokohua apiha ra. Pohehe pea a ia kua hemo ke awau'. No te tahatanga o te tank ra, ka marakerake taku kite atu i te tino tokomaha o nga purart Tiamana e haere mai ana. Ka whakaaro ake awau - whakamutua atu. Pakake ana taku haere atu.

FINAL YEAR DENTAL STUDENTS WORK WITH REAL LIFE PATIENTS

Final year Otago University dentistry students Shay Taylor and Ishani Sukumaran work with real life patient Derek Biddle as part of the Tairāwhiti Interprofessional Programme for which Tūranga Health is one of the hosts.  Kristine Walsh.

S

INCE suffering a cardiac arrest in early 2019 Derek Biddle has been under the care of Tūranga Health, and it is thanks to its relationship with the Tairāwhiti Interprofessional Programme that he got the dental care he needed.

“That was just amazing,” he says. “It has been a few months since my heart attack but I still have only 20 percent of its function and, for now, that's keeping me out of work. If I couldn't get the dental work done this way, it wouldn't have happened.” As part of the Interprofessional Programme, final-year students in disciplines from medicine and dentistry to nursing and paramedicine get to spend five weeks in Gisborne, where they work with real patients in real-life situations. “It was a chance to get some really important work done so I jumped at it,” says Derek, whose work was carried out by University of Otago dental students Shay Taylor and Ishani Sukumaran.

“They might not yet be fully qualified but they were totally professional. They fully earned my trust.” Tairāwhiti Interprofessional Programme leader Natasha Ashworth says the student placements occur five times a year and Tūranga Health is a regular host across all disciplines. “We love working with them because they always come up with really innovative ideas that students have been able to work on over the years,” Natasha says. “They put a lot of thought into what might be of most benefit to their whānau

so the student can work on, say, research or creating a resource that can be used going forward. It's good for Tūranga Health whānau, and it's invaluable experience for the students.” That has a positive spin-off for the wider community in that, according to Natasha Ashworth, around 13 percent of visiting students later return to work in Te Tairāwhiti. “So, for us, it's a really important part of our recruiting strategy going into the future – the community doesn't just get health professionals . . . it gets really engaged young professionals who are eager to contribute.” And both Shay Taylor and Ishani Sukumaran agree that, as well as giving

them invaluable professional experience, their East Coast experience has opened their eyes to options for their futures. “We can't overstate just how much we learn by going into communities and working with patients with complex health needs,” Shay says. “As well as that, absolutely everyone we've dealt with have been so warm and welcoming,” adds Ishani. “The opportunity to get to know communities around the country will really help us make decisions around future placements.”
