WAIATA O TE RA - Tangi a te ruru

51Ilw73yXHL

The waiata i have chosen for today is a goodie but an oldie. Ive always sung this song for many different kaupapa. 


Ko te waiata kua tiipakohia e au moo teenei raa ko Te Hokinga mai. Kua roa te waa au e waiata ana i teenei waiata moo ngaa kaupapa huhua.

This waiata was composed by Te Taite Kupa, Ngāti Kahungunu, from Hastings, Te Hokinga Mai, with Bishop Takuira Mariu and the Pakipaki Community, to celebrate the return of taonga which featured in the Te Māori Exhibition that toured North America in the mid-1980s

I titoa teenei waiata hei tohu i te hokinga mai o nga taonga Māori. 


Tangi a te ruru

Kei te hokihoki mai e
E whakawherowhero i te pūtahitanga
Nāku nei rā koe
I tuku kia haere
Tēra puritia iho
Nui rawa te aroha eTe hokinga mai tēna koutou
Tangi ana te ngākau i te aroha
Tu tonu rā te mana te ihi
O ngā tupuna kua wehe atu rā
Mauria mai
Te Mauri
Tangata
Hei oranga mo te mōrehu
Tangi mōkai nei
E rapu ana i te ara tika
Mō tātou kātoaTe hokinga mai tēna koutou
Tangi ana te ngākau i te aroha
Tu tonu rā te mana te ihi
O ngā tupuna kua wehe atu rā
Mauria mai
Te Mauri
Tangata
Hei oranga mo te mōrehu
Tangi mōkai nei
E rapu ana i te ara tika
Mō tātou kātoaE rapu ana i te ara tika
Mō tātou kātoaTe hokinga mai
Tū tangata
