    Ngā Rangahau A Mākino having been launched in November 2016 hosted the first research symposium in March titled Kia Mākino E! The symposium brought together the Mākino Model (worldview biased holistic mauri assessment) with CBONS, an initiative pioneered by leading researchers from the United States including President’s Professor Lillian Na’la Alessa, International Liaison and Program Lead CBONS-SA.

    Researchers from various organisations including NIWA, Atawhai Whenua and Toi Ohomai attended the symposium held at Otamarakau. The combined research initiatives have the potential to create a new synergy that can produce high fidelity information regarding changes occurring in the ecosystem that inform a comprehensive analysis capable of reflecting different worldview perspectives. Those present were excited by the possibilities that the combined approaches introduced.

    Further collaboration is planned for 2017 with a follow-up meeting and research funding proposals to be prepared for submission in late September.

    Photo caption:  President’s Professor Lil and Dr Anaru Kliskey demonstrate the CBONS data capture system outside Ruapotango wharekai at Otamarakau.

    Photo caption 2:  Participants contribute to discussion on the potential for mauri based assessments and the relevance of the CBONS data management system.

    Ngā Rangahau Ō Mākino was launched at the 2016 AGM and is developing a long-term focus so that we can learn from the work being done. We already have a strong reputation resulting from work done by the Ngāti Mākino Heritage Trust. We want to know about the integrity of our resources and their availability. We have ocean opportunities (Ki Tai), fresh water and land opportunities (Ki Uta). We are going to use mauri to understand these opportunities rather than just money.

    So we need to understand how we will measure mauri. The Mākino Model explains the mauri of our lands and waters, focused on impacts and monitoring. Ngāti Mākino Heritage Trust make submissions to many council documents. The common thread is mauri. A Mākino Model wānanga for the board and our koeke, allowing discussion and debate before the Mākino Model was shared with those attending the Mākino Model / CBONS wānanga on 21st and 2nd March.

    Are you wearing your new Beanie Ōkawa or Ōpaki? Trustee Stewart Ngatai modelled the ngā hau e whā Beanie innovation now being modelled by everyone that attended the Matariki Event.

    Tatati Takuira-Mita had this to say.

    “Our whānau really enjoyed celebrating Matariki at Ōtamarākau Marae this year. There was heaps of kai which was yummy. The kōrero and presentation was interesting and informative. We loved the Beanies that were given out for us to represent Ngāti Mākino. What an awesome idea! and perfect for this time of year. Holding the event at the marae was awesome as it gave the option for whanau to stay, if needed. A huge mihi to all the organisers and ringawera.”

    It really was a fabulous dinner, “kua puta a pito”, and staff contributions were acknowledged, Ngāti Mākino grant recipients congratulated, and the new Beanie introduced. The Beanie design features the Ngāti Mākino monogram on one side and the phrase Kia Mākino E! on the opposite side. This allows the beanie to be worn Ōkawa (Monogram to front), Ōpaki (phrase to the front), or unsure about the hui sideways one way, unsure about yourself sideways the other way. One of the whanau described the beanie as Ngāti Mākino’s version of the mullet haircut – all business at the front and a party at the back.

    It was also movie night, with a special screening of Ngā Iwa Ō Matariki courtesy of Ahorangi Associate Professor Rangi Mātāmua. The 15 minute movie was the perfect end to the evening leaving 

    everyone fulfilled physically, intellectually, and spiritually. Themovie was prefaced with a sampling of different representations of Matariki or the Pleiades constellation from around the world. These images illustrated how different cultures value Matariki and emphasised for those present the need to revitalise our own understandings so that in 2018 we can celebrate our new year including the particular Mākino nuances that make Matariki unique at Ōtamarākau.

    Na Mark Maxwell tenei kōrero.

    I tera marama, i haere matou ‘ko taku whanau’, ki Ōtamarakau ki te whakanui Matariki. Nga mihi ki a koutou hoki, ki te whanau me te ropu whakahaere o Ngāti Mākino, tena koutou.

    Koinei aku whakaaro e pa ana i tera kaupapa. I miharo matou i te nui me te ahua nahanaha o nga kaupapa. I tuwhera te ra, he powhiritia te tangata whenua i a matou-nga manuhiri, katahi ka noho tatou mo te kai, he tino reka. A muri tera ka ako matou, e pā ana ki te whetu i roto i te rangi, nga whetu hou me nga mahi o nga whetu o Matariki. I matakitaki tatou he kiriata. He tino kiriata pai. I te mutunga o te ra, tatou katoa korero i roto i te po. Ko te ata i muri mai, parakuihi tatou, whakapai te marae, poroporoake. Ae, I tautoko ke ki te kawa me nga tikanga maori kua whakakite matou kei runga i te marae. I tutaki matou ki te whanau whanui, whanau hou. Ko te mea nui mo ta maua tamariki. 

    He ataahua rirerire i tera ra whakata.  Ko te mea nui, e mihi mai, me mihi atu no reira tena koutou tena koutou mauri ora ki a tatou.

    Anei he whakatauki: Ina kei te mohio koe ko wai koe, I anga mai koe I hea, kei te mohio koe, kei te anga atu ki hea. Tae hoki nga whetu!

    Waitahanui-A-Hei was available for whanau to stay overnight and an early rise was rewarded with an awesome night sky that gradually gave way to an amazing sunrise captured in the image below.

        

    We are now planning for this to become an annual event. Next year the event will be better promoted, some transport provided, and more cool ideas.

    Translation:

    Last month I went to Ōtamarakau to celebrate Matariki. Acknowledgments to the family and organisers of Ngāti Mākino. Thankyous.

    Here are my thoughts. We were amazed at the extent and nature of the planned project over the weekend. The day opened, with a Powhiri to welcome the visitors, then we sat down to eat, as one. Very beautiful food. After that we learnt about the stars in the sky, new stars and the purpose of these stars.

    We watched a film about Matariki. A very good film. At the end of the day we all sat and talked through the night. The next morning, we ate breakfast, cleaned the marae then said our farewells. Fully in support of the protocols, the culture shown to us on the the marae. We meet wider family, new family which is very important for our children.

    It was a exceptionally beautiful weekend. It is very important that we thank you all so much. Here’s a proverb: If you know who you are and where you are from, then you will know where you are going. Reach for the stars!
