E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangatanga maha
Nau mai haere mai, whakatau mai ki to tātou whārangi ipurangi
Ki te matakitaki te ripene ataatata o to tātou koroua a Morehu Ngatoko Rahipere.

Nāna i whakatauira mai, e kore e mutu te tangata ki te whai kaha i ngā tohu teitei o
te matauranga Nō reira e to tātou koroua te pouherenga tangata o te iwi o Ngāti Ranginui
Tēnei te mihi ki a koe…..

We are delighted to be able to share this video along with written information from the recent University of Waikato Graduation Conferral Ceremony, whereby our treasured kaumatua, Morehu Ngatoko Rahipere received an honorary Doctorate.

This was in recognition and acknowledgement of his life’s work in many fields of endeavour. The ceremony itself was a very special occasion, as was the celebratory dinner that Wairoa Marae hosted for Morehu the following Saturday evening.

I encourage you to take the time to watch the video and enjoy the incredible story of Morehu’s dedication to his whanau, hapu, iwi and wider community.

Hikohiko te uira papā te whatitiri ki runga o Mauao
Papaki tū ana ngā ngaru whatiwhati ki te toka tūmoana o Tirikawa
Te pou herenga o to tātou waka tapu o Takitimu e
Aue taukiri e

Kāore arikarika te tuku atu ngā mihi ki te kapa haka o Ngāti Ranginui mo a rātou mahi miharo i runga i te atamira takahi waewae o Ngāti Kahungunu.

Me noho whakahīhī te haukāinga ki runga i te mōhio kua piki atu to tātou kapa ki tērā taumata teitei o te Matatini. Nō reira, tēnei te mihi, tēna koutou, tēnā tātou.

As a proud sponsor of Te Roopu Kapahaka o Ngāti Ranginui, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ranginui would like to congratulate Te Roopu Kapahaka o Ngāti Ranginui on achieving a fantastic result over the weekend at the Ngāti Kahungunu Kapahaka Regionals.  Out of 14 groups, Te Roopu Kapahaka o Ngāti Ranginui came in at 2nd place, making them one of the four groups selected to advance to Te Matatini being held in Kahungunu 2017.

Te Roopu Kapahaka o Ngāti Ranginui will be hosting ’Te Matatini Mauri’ over the next few months and the Runanga is working closely with them to identify ways which we can provide further support.
