MAORI PROVERB (WHAKATAUKI)

(Thank you to the Maori people from the Far North of Aotearoa, New Zealand for this amazing proverb that has kept me committed and grounded to my work for communities wide and far).







Hutia te rito o te harakeke

If the centre of the flax is pulled out (and the flax dies)



Kei hea te komako e ko?

Where will the Bellbird sing?



Ki mai ki ahau

If you were to ask me



He aha te mea nui o tenei ao?

What is the most important thing in the world?



Maku e ki atu

I would reply



He Tangata!

It is People!



He Tangata!

It is People!



He Tangata!

It is People!
