Ehara i te mahi māmā tēnei mahi! Ahakoa tērā, he nui ngā whaihua o tēnei tau mō Te Heretaura. Ko ngā mōrehu o tēnei mahi, ngā ringa tōhau nui o tēnei kaupapa, ko ngā tauira mō ngā teina- ahakoa, he tamaiti tonu. Koinei te ataahuatanga o Te Aho Paihere, me he tuakana, me he teina, he nui tō mahi, engari me he uaua- kei kōnei māua, mātou ko ngā mātua, ki te awhi i a koe kia tutuki pai tō mahi.
Ka noho poho kereru māua i ō koutou mahi i te tau nei, ahakoa ngā raru ki te kura, ki te aha rānei. I te haere tonu te mahi, kei te haere tonu inaianei, ka haere tonu hoki te mahi. Nei rā tā māua mihi ki a koutou.
Our most challenging project yet is the Te Heretaura project. This involves training capable and committed tuakana, who are keen to share the workload, in tutoring kapa haka in their communities. Throughout our journey in teaching kapa haka, we have learned many lessons, made many mistakes and achieved much more than we ever expected. With this insight we want to set up an easier pathway for our rangatahi to tutor, without as many obstacles, and somebody to guide them in their journey.
