Māori place names - Point Erin to Wynyard Quarter with Herewini Easton Wednesday 12 July, 12pm -1pm

E tu ake ana ahau ki Okā 
Ka tiro atu ki Te Waikōkota 
Ka rongo ahau ki ngā wai e tere nei
Ko Tīkapa Moana, ko Hauraki ko Waitemata
Ko Ūreia he tipua he taniwha
As I stand at Okā I look out across Te Waikōkota
I sense the waters flowing, Tīkapa Moana, Hauraki, Waitemata
Here is Ūreia the mythical sea creature

Join Herewini Easton on a pictorial journey of the ancient shoreline of Auckland’s waterfront, from Point Erin to Brickfield Bay.

Engagement with Māori taonga - with Rob Eruera.  Wednesday 26 July, 12pm -1pm 

The charismatic karanga of taonga Māori over the years has left my mind and heart filled with emotional wonder at how powerful such treasures truly are. Most important to this equation, however, is how people engage and join with the taonga.

Please join me in this low key chat. 
Nau mai – Haere mai  - Rob Eurera.



With the NZSG Conference being held in early June, the May issue of Te Reo has been held over to include details of the Conference, the MIG Committee will also take this opportunity to set a date for our 2017 AGM.  Te Reo Mei will therefore be online as soon as possible after the long weekend with hardcopies printed and distributed shortly thereafter. Thank you for your patience, Bruce/Editor.

AGM Agenda & Postal Vote

Kia ora Whanau

This is to alert you to the Annual General Meeting and Extraordinary General Meeting to be held
Saturday11 March 2017, 10am, at the Meeting Room NZSG FRC, 159 Queens Road, Panmure, Auckland.

I have attached the agenda and a postal voting form.

This is an important meeting as it concerns the future status of our roopu.
The committee is finding it increasingly difficult to abide by the NZSG Rules as they concern Interest Groups.
Our membership is small (25 at the present count) spread throughout New Zealand and Australia.
Thus it is all but impossible to hold meetings and especially so to achieve a quorum at the AGM.

Any change of status would not affect the administration of our roopu.  Te Reo and the website would continue.
We would remain part of NZSG and have a presence at NZSG Research Days.  Furthermore, by becoming a Contact Group
the committee would spend less time on administrative duties and be able to use this to assist members in their whakapapa research.

Your committee urges you to use the attached voting form and show your support of the proposed change of MIG
to an NZSG Contact Group.

Nga mihi
