Monday Quote: The Ideal Qualities of a Rangatira

In Te Ao Māori on May 19, 2014 at 10:00 am

Wiremu Maihi Te Rangikāheke

He mōhio ki te whakahaere I nga kōrero o te mahi kai, o te tangohanga whare, waka, pātaka, hereimu.

Ko te atawhai anō tētahi

Skilled in the management and arts of food production, the construction of homes, canoes, food stores, and cooking sheds; and with the ability to take care of people and offer hospitality.

How many modern day Iwi leaders are living true to the words of Te Rangikāheke?
