Te Aho Tāmiro Mokopapa mō Rongowhakaata - kātahi te rangi miharo ko tera.

On Thursday, 7 January 2021, Te Aho Tāmiro Mokopapa was held at Whakatō Marae. This was the first mokopapa conducted by Tā Derek Lardelli in Rongowhakaata since he began this kaupapa 30 years ago. While Pūkanohi were undertaken, the primary focus was Pūkauae with our wahine. A wānanga was led by Tā Derek alongside the Kāhui Tara, Aunty Charlotte Te Kani and Koka Hine Haig the previous evening to prepare everybody. The group was oriented to the kaupapa through kōrero on whakapapa, context and purpose. A comment made from one of the participating artists was, “Rongowhakaata are the untouched portion of Te Tairāwhiti in regard to Moko Kauae” which stimulated a little giggle from the whare. But if there were concerns or anxieties from recipients these were allayed by the end of the night and everyone looked forward to the day ahead. Tā

Derek was supported by fellow Rongowhakaata Moko Artists; Johnny Moetara, Henare and Joni Brooking, and Mark Kopua. Fourteen Rongowhakaata uri received Pūkauae or Pūkanohi within the tipuna whare, Te Mana o Tūranga and were surrounded by over 150 whānau members. The presence and tautoko of these whānau members did much to create the wairua that was generated through this kaupapa. Kikī ana te whare, e te tangata, e te waiata, e te mauri o ngā tipuna mā te mahi a te Kaitā.

Following on from the Ngātapa Commemorative event, held the previous

day, whānau were on a ‘cultural high’ citing the Mokopapa as an amazing way to conclude two wonderful days of Rongowhakaata kaupapa. A great positive start to 2021. Te Aho Tāmiro Mokopapa brought home the kaupapa that began in December 2020, Te Ara o Mokorau, with Rongowhakaata Pou Tikanga, Taharakau Stewart and April Su’a receiving the first stages of Pūkanohi and Pūkauae in Te Hau ki Tūranga at Te Papa. Tā Derek led both of these kaupapa with the agreement and support of the Rongowhakaata Iwi Trust and Karanga Aotearoa. The mahi of Karanga Aotearoa Repatriation Programme is to bring our Māori and Moriori ancestors home. The connection here is in the Toi moko that some of these tūpuna wear. Rangahau (research) on tā moko designs is led by Tā Derek Lardelli with the aim of linking the engraved tā moko patterns on tūpuna back to their communities of origin. In this regard Te Herekiekie Herewini of Karanga Aotearoa states: Ruku i te pō, ruku i te ao. By diving into the depths of mātauranga pertaining to tā moko, we importantly discover more about ourselves and the rich art tradition we come from as Māori. Kia raranga mai te takapau. Let the ancestral mats of our whare be woven in order for our taonga to return. Ma ngā wāhine te tapu o te whare e hiki. 2021 is a big year for Rongowhakaata as we come to the end of our Iwi residency at Te Papa, we need to consider the closing of the ‘Ko Rongowhakaata’ Exhibition and the return of our taonga. As the whakatauaki above states: Through Te Ara o Mokorau and Te Aho Tamiro Mokopapa we begin our preparations for the uplift and return of our taonga. All of our taonga? Kei a tātou te whakautu.


Pipiwharauroa HIKOI KI NGĀTAPA PĀ

HIKOI TO NGĀTAPA PĀ

On January 6th 2021 marked 152 years since the Siege of Ngātapa ended. This event has been described as 'The fall of Tūranga', as many of our tipuna fled the district, were killed or captured and sold into slavery. The meteor flag of mighty England reigned over Tūranga from that point forward which would change our lives forever. We received overwhelming from our whānau and the wider community to participate in this historic hikoi. Emotions ran high as we reached the peak of the hill where the siege occurred. This was a signifiant day for Rongowhakaata and we thank all of you who participated. Our goal is to create educational opportunities for everyone to learn our distinct narratives. Feeding identity through narrative is key so that future generations will better understand who they are.

interest “The scale of the systematic killing at Ngātapa represents one of the worst abuses of law and human rights in New Zealand’s colonial history. 43 per cent of the adult male population of Tūranga, were killed in armed conflict with the Crown. This is an extraordinary level of loss for any community anywhere. It is believed to be the highest casualty rate suffered by Māori in any region in New Zealand during the land wars.” – An excerpt from the Rongowhakaata Treaty Claim.

Droving

RETURN HOME

Monday brought us all back to reality. Ivan asked me to join him on a couple of short droving trips through to the Bay of Plenty. I had picked up a couple of extra dogs. We took one mob through the Waioeka Gorge, where there was a lot of activity with the Ministry of Works realignments. And there were three mobs a couple of days apart.

I returned home and in 1961 started working with my father. I spent the year learning everything possible including fencing and shearing he did for his own and others’ sheep at the Kaitoke farm he leased on the Wharerata.

We took the next mob to Motu and over the Motu track. I recall Toatoa School as our mob drifted past, the pakeha teacher in his shorts and 12 mainly Maori kids standing to attention and singing at the top of their I was given my first dog, Storm, which Pop voices, God Save the Queen.

good. Sam, Butch and I did a lot of fencing for Hugh in the off-season. He always put out more gear than required, his rationale being it was easier to pick up extra post and battens later when it was a slack time on the farm.

Hugh had one of the first woolaway sheds built in Gisborne. Both he and his father Selwyn asked for more reinforcing and the wool room to be lined. Pop got the job to build the new sheep yards and used me, Sam and Butch as his crew. On the first day we were a bit concerned as we only put in two post and string lines running what seemed everywhere. Selwyn smiled the next day as Pop had his levels right and the two posts were for the drafting gates. Every part of the yard centred on this. The timber was durable, long-lasting rata milled from T J Hill at Matawhero. Pop was paid 1 pound an hour, we got 10 shillings an hour, incredible wages at that time. We always did the best job we could when we were on Kohekohe. Hugh Bridge was a top farmer, a very good employer and a nice person to boot.

Hamilton Black Hamilton Black wanted me to help with his stock work. He was an unusual, slightly dark man, about six feet and of strong build. Many years later, his son Donald, a doctor, contacted me as he had been in the same class as mum at Manutuke School. He asked if we could meet before the Mangatū AGM as he had inherited some shares. He was an only child; his mother was from Patagonia and loved gardens hence the magnificent ones around their house on the hill. This house was a real gem with a small ballroom. Don said his parents were very private people and had little contact with any of the locals. Don trained as a doctor then went to America, married a wealthy lady, had a family and lived in the foothills of California. He flew his private plane into his practice every day.

We rode up and spent the night at the roadman’s hut beside the old hall and Pu Morgan’s Post Office at the Paritu turn-off. This eventually became the site of the Wharerata Forest HQ. Jim Bowen had just been made ranger as the Forest Service had purchased the Bowen property past Paritu.

Jim said: “These cattle are cunning and have beaten several attempts to take them away. Don’t come along the Paritu Road. Cut through Tietjens’ block, take them up to the main road, push them hard then down the main road. Only give them a rest when you get to your father’s cattle yards.” His advice worked like a charm. Our dad always advised us to listen to the old stockmen as they knew every trick animals will use, how to muster a property, shift stock etc. It’s still relevant today but these cattle and conditions are now history.

We ran the sheep through. I had to ask him to tie his two dogs up as they were biting too much and too many sheep had dog bites and blood over them. He took both and locked Wharerata characters them in a big cage in the woolshed.

The biggest job he had in England was painting doors and windowsills. The job doing this house was unbelievable for him. He mentioned there was an unusual big car in the garage, and that Hammy rode a bicycle out from Gisborne every day to the farm.

The pre-story to this was that a tired Hammy was driving his car home late one evening when he swerved off the road not far from Nan’s house. He hit Eva Pohatu, who ended up in hospital. Hammy was devastated and met all costs plus a payment for her injuries. He parked the Buick V8 in the shed and never drove it again. It sat in there for years. I wonder what happened to it!

Te Rūnanga o Tūranganui ā Kiwa Whānau Ora Haerenga

We started a journey with some of our whānau ora tamariki late last year to hear and walk the kōrero of our Tūranganui Iwi; Ngāi Tāmanuhiri, Rongowhakaata and Te Aitanga ā Māhaki. Our tamariki participated in marae kōrero, hikoi, raranga and manu spotting and learnt so much, with our kaimahi, starting with Tahupōtiki and Papa Te Whai at Tāmanuhiri. Then to our Whakatō marae whānau to hear stories around Ruapani, Hinetataurangi the taniwha and visited Te Arai te Uru awa where we also viewed the pā site of Te Hau ki Tūranga. From there we went to Tarere Marae to learn about Te Whānau ā Iwi and Ngāi Tawhiri, Te Ko Iwi and Mangamoteo awa and our rangatira Kahutia which led us to Māhaki where he was born.

A further trip took us to the birth place of Māhaki on Maungakahia in Mahia where we also visited other special places for the tamariki to learn about Maunga Taupiri Tapu Tahi, Ruawharo, Rotopunamu, Rakato, Taiwānanga, Kahungungu and Rongomaiwahine. To finish our haerenga we just had to complete the story of Rongowhakaata at Te Papa where our tamariki and kaimahi were blessed to be able to stay in our whare tipuna, Te Hau ki Tūranga where we heard the kōrero about its structure and the history of how it was stolen. The majority of our tamariki had never been to Te Papa let alone Poneke and were really amazed, a great experience for everyone. A special mihi goes to Parekura Brown and Scotty Riki for their support and kōrero and Heni Pewhairangi for being our kai kōrero. Also to Rongowhakaata Iwi Trust Board, General Manager Amohaere Houkamo and Te Papa staff including Pou Tikanga April Nepia-Su'a and Taharakau Stewart for making our haerenga complete. Our tamariki had an amazing time hearing the stories and tracing the spaces that our tīpuna walked.

LIVED EXPERIENCE ENRICHES LAURA'S WORK LIFE

L

AURA Biddle joined Tūranga Health for her own health reasons and 20 years later she's still there, having helped countless others improve their wellbeing. As service co-ordinator (mental health and addictions), she is this year one of four staff members to mark two decades at the Māori primary health provider. And though she has sneaked past the age of retirement, Laura – now nanny to five gorgeous moko – plans to continue for a while yet. “It is challenging work so to do it well you have to have a passion for it, which I have to this day,” she says. “The day I dread coming into work is the day I will stop, but I don't see that happening any time soon.” Brought up by her grandparents at Tunnel Flat, near Mohaka, Laura (Ngāti Kahungunu/Ngāi Tūhoe /Ngapūhi) went to Raupunga Māori District High School, finishing the year it closed, in 1969. Not long after she started her family early, marrying and having her first child at the age of 17, and work opportunities took the young whānau to Ruatoria where they stayed for 12 years. There, young son Bernie soon got two younger sisters – Sarah, followed by Heather. And while Laura had a good job at the local TAB she felt “a bit lost” so, when her family was split by the end of her marriage, she moved to Wellington. In the Capital she worked at Newtown Post Office but soon after her arrival, at the age of just 30, she got the devastating diagnoses of cervical cancer. “I'll never forget the day I got the news. My younger brother was also in Wellington at the time so at about 11pm I walked over to his place to tell him,” she says. “Because I worked for the Post Office I was able to borrow the money for private treatment so could get the surgery over with quickly. But I still felt lost and moved around trying to find my place.” Though she had spent time in Whakatane looking after her mother, and in Morere to be closer to her whānau, Laura admits she wasn't making the best life choices. “I was drinking too much, failing

to settle, so I decided to head back to Whakatane. But I never got further than Gisborne . . . having been away from my children for so long I wanted to be close to them and getting a Housing Corporation home allowed me to do that.” It also allowed her to have her first formal introduction to healthcare, as she completed Tairawhiti Polytechnic

courses on caregiving, disabilities and aged care. “That was the beginning of my learning and enabled me to move into rest home care, a job I really enjoyed. By then both of my grandparents had passed and I thought if only I had done that learning earlier I could have helped them have longer, healthier lives.” She also knocked off the drinking. “ P e r h a p s because I'd had my family so young I didn't get to live that irresponsible life, so got hooked into it later,” she says. “It came to the point where I wanted to be more settled and could see the cost both to myself and to those around

me, but that lived experience has been useful in my work, in understanding what others are going through.” Laura says the six years she spent working at Riverview Rest Home helped her develop a sharp skill base and take on responsible roles, but by the year 2000 she was in her late 40s and the heavy lifting was taking a toll. “At the time my son Bernie (who died in late 2017) was working at Tūranga Health and he suggested I go for a job working with the mental health whānau,” she says. “So I did, and got to spend the next seven years running respite care and supported living homes. For me it was a new area of health care and for whānau we were there to offer them the support they needed.” That was until 2008 when a national mental health review led to changes in the way funding was allocated by bringing in the Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) model. “It was a very disruptive time and challenging for us at Tūranga Health, because when we think about a whānau member's needs we think about the person, not dollars and hours. “But we were determined to serve our whānau with community-based mental health care and are always willing to adapt to achieve that.” Laura has managed and supported the teams of Tūranga Health's mental health and addiction service as well as its Vanessa Lowndes Centre day programme for whānau with mental, physical or intellectual health challenges. She says quitting bad habits, having a secure home and strengthening her relationships with her children were all factors in her own journey to a better life, and that's what she hopes for all Tūranga Health whānau. “Anyone can suffer from mental health issues and addictions often go hand-in-hand with that, providing yet another block to wellness,” she says. “Our role is to support whānau in taking ownership so they can live the absolutely best lives they can.”
