This photo is from Waitangi Day last year. It's one of my favourite photos. Waitangi Day is a great way to practice whanaungatanga (the value of family) and extend it to everyone around you. Appreciate people, your whanau (family) and enjoy each other's company. It's also a great time to remember where you come from, the history of our people and plan all the things we have to look forward to in our life. We will be heading back to this festival tomorrow to listen to some of our favourite Maori artists. It's going to be awesome. Mauri ora (good health).

Playing at the mythology maze of Maui today. The maze follows the legend of Maui and his journey to find his father. It was so funny watching you walking in the footsteps so proud that you were getting closer to the kereru(native New Zealand bird) which Maui changed into to find his father. I love sharing the stories of our tipuna (ancestors) with you which help to strengthen your bond with your surroundings. Such a fun day!

Hurihia to aroaro ki te ra tukuna to atarangi kia taka ki muri i a koe. Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you (Maori whakatauki / proverb).
