Kia Maori tonu te Maori

He Whakaaro noa

As Maori, we are intrinsically responsible to ourselves and future generations to advance and develop Maori in every aspect that we can. One of these responsibilities, or obligations as I see it, is to perpetuate our Maori whakapapa through cohabiting with Maori.

This 'strategy' is not a new concept and was traditionally practiced by our tupuna with embreeding amongst royal lines to maintain the whakapapa. As Maori we need to at least make informed decisions when it comes to choosing the father or mother of our children.

The future of Maori whakapapa rests in our hands as we begin to sow the generations of tomorrow, we must bear in mind that 100 years from now, the physical and spiritual make up of Maori will have changed dramatically, but whakapapa Maori will always remain Maori.

This is not an instruction to our Maori brothers and sisters, rather, it is a point that all Maori of today need to face, understand and then make their decision... Do not take this as being a racial stance. It is merely a plan for the future, for the future of Maori...

Yeah it was a mean night girl and always, always good to hang with my Tohu sister... No need to apologise... we all good. I just wished I didn't have to be the sober driver otherwise I would have been in with those dangerous oddfellows... mind you I had plenty of 'odd fellows' hanging around to keep me entertained lol.

ha ha, you know it girl. That is the only way to get it done. As for the abstract Paul reminded us today. I have to fish it out, just doing what we did at Atlanta and I will send it through.

Take care and good luck with the thesis. And I do mean it, send me stuff if you just want someone to bounce ideas from. :)

Hika alright, your time is creeping up to you fast ... Advice...well, there isn't much except... well really there isn't... BUT Anytime you want to start flicking me stuff, you just let me know and I can have a read of it and try and get it back to you as soon as. Good luck with that. On a another more positive note, I hear you are doing great things with the MASS conference... Ka pai you! :)
