Te Hui-a-tau o Te Rau Herenga o Aotearoa

E nga mana, e nga reo, e nga karangatanga maha o nga hau e wha, tena koutou katoa.

Nga mihi ki a koutou kua mahi tonu i nga whakahaere, ka pai o koutou mahi kaitiaki o o tatou whare taonga, no reira, tena koutou katoa.

Tino hari koa taku ngakau i nga korero i korerohia nei. Inanahi ra, ka haere mai nga rangatira mo apopo, i tautokohia te powhiri o nga manuhiri puta noa i te ao nei, no reira, e mihi miharo ki a tatou tamariki, nga whanau hoki i hapaitia e ratou.

I tenei rangi, ka tuwhera te tangata whenua, kia tohaina nga korero nehe mo tatou. Kia whakaohooho nga whakaaro e pa ana ki nga whare taonga puta noa i te ao. Kei hea te whare o nga hapu o te ao, ko nga maunga, nga awa, nga ngahere me era atu nga patu o te whare. No reira, he rereke te ahua o te pouaka me te pataka hoki.

Ka huri noa ki a Matua Mason Durie, nana i tuku mai te korero o nga rangatira mo apopo. Ka katakata, ka tangi, ka karanga hoki ki a ia, i tona mahi whakatu, tohaina korero hoki. No reira, pehea te ahua o te farthing me te shilling me te penny hoki. Ko wai i tuku mai te whakaaro o nga inu miraka i roto i nga kura? Ko Dame Muriel Bell. Ka pai tona mahi, engari kia whakarite nga rangatira mo apopo.

Ka huri ano ki a Teri Ta'ala i tona korerorero o Nga Upoko Tukutuku, nga wero me era atu mo nga whakahaere o te ao nei.

Ka whai atu ahau wetahi korero, wetahi pikitia a Samantha, nana i tuku mai te korero o Digitisation me te matauranga Maori, no reira, ka rawe. Kia patai atu koutou ki a ia i tona whakaritenga, korerorero whanui ki nga whare taonga, nga hapu me era atu tangata o tenei motu.

No reira, kia kaha tatou, ka tatari i nga mea pai, nga mea tuhituhi mo koutou e hiahia ana ki te panuitia wetahi o nga korero. No reira, ko te pae tawhiti, whaia kia tata. Ko te pai tata, whakamaua kia tina. No reira, tena koutou, tena koutou, tena tatou katoa.

Monday 3 November Keynote sessions

Live blogging for Monday's sessions. Keynotes today Professor Mason Durie and Mark McCrindle.

FYI - The app we are using is running one hour behind regular time - it doesn't know it's daylight savings. :)

First day of conference over and what's going on today?

The first day of conference is over. I have to admit that it was a bit of a blur - it seemed to be nothing but people smiling and hugging, heads nodding, a bit of singing, a bit of eating and lots and lots of talking and laughing.

Thanks to Newton school who came for the powhiri. They were fantastic. During afternoon tea they performed another set of songs and haka. Brilliant! Those kids are very talented. Thank you also to 'Uncle' Grant who represented the committee during the mihi.

The Welcome drinks in the exhibition area went very well. It's a nice to space to wander around. I spotted a few stands that I'll have to get back to. There was a lovely warm vibe, very welcoming and everyone had a good time.

There were a few dinners last night - I'm reliably informed that the J.B. Bennett dinner was excellent.

What's on today? Professor Mason Durie and Mark McCrindle will be giving their Keynote speeches. Also today we'll be splitting out to separate sessions. Hopefully everything will work and you'll be able to follow along via our CoverItLive coverage. If you have any questions please ask them. Later on this evening there are the LIANZA awards.
