WHAKAMĀRAMA

He kupu whānui e pā ana ki tā te Māori hāpai i ngā mata a Tū. I ngā wā o mua, ko te pakanga te mahi, i ēnei rā, ko te kawa o te marae, ko te mahi a te rēhia, ko te whakaū i te tuakiri tangata me tōna hauora ā-tinana, ā-hinengaro, ā-wairua, ā-pori anō hoki.

A general term relating to the Māori use of traditional weapons. In former times, this was focused on waging war, in more recent times, on formal marae ceremony, the performing arts and elevating personal identity and wellbeing - physical, mental, spiritual and social.

Koia nei ētahi o ngā rākau a Tū:

  • Ko te taiaha. Mahia ai ki te rākau mārō, pērā i te maire, te kānuka me te rātā. Ko te nuinga, kei waenganui i te 1.5 me te 1.9 mita te roa. He koi tētahi pito hei wero i te hoariri, koia te arero o te taiaha. He papatahi te rau o te taiaha, koia hei pātuki. Ko te papare i ngā pao a te hoariri tētahi whakamahinga matua o te taiaha.
  • Ko te pouwhenua. He āhua rite tēnei ki te taiaha, engari he koikoi ake tōna arero.
  • Ko te koikoi. He rākau roa tēnei, he koi ngā pito e rua.
  • Ko te toki poutangata. He pounamu tōna mata. Mā te rangatira tēnei momo e hiki.
