TŪROU HAWAIKI

Tūrou parea, Tūrou Hawaiki.

May the ancient homeland of Hawaiki glisten on in mind's eye forever 

Simply translated this whakatauki can be understood as ‘May the force be with you’. Or the full version is, "May the ancient homeland of Hawaiki glisten on in mind's eye forever".

The phrase "Tūrou Hawaiki" is commonly used as a kīwaha in everyday speech. Hawaiki is understood to be the place of origin for Māori.

In the Far North, we believe that when someone passes on their spirit goes to Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga) and enters Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa (Pacific Ocean) to travel back to Hawaiki.

This taonga reminds us of heritage, ancestry and identity.

 

AKE AKE AKE

Forever, and evermore.

This is a proclamation to state forever and evermore, or as long as it takes. More commonly you hear these words at the end of a karakia as an affirmation of unity and solidarity. 

During the peaceful movement of Ihumatao in Tāmaki Makaurau this saying became infamous as a statement of protection against the development of the unique landscape. These kupu symbolise resilience, strength and determination. 

 

KIA KAHA KIA MĀIA KIA MANAWANUI

Be strong, be brave, be resilient

This whakataukī is an affirmation of empowerment and an encouragement to be resilient and believe in yourself. Everyone experiences highs and lows throughout their lives and taking care of your wairua and hauora is important. 

This pēke is a reminder to be strong, brave and steadfast.

  

Kupu hou:

whakatauki = proverb

kīwaha = colloquial saying, slang

tūpuna = ancestors

Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa = Pacific Ocean

taonga = precious, treasured, of great value
