Te Whāriki

E kore e taea e te whenu kōtahi 

ki te raranga i te whāriki.

Kia mōhio tātou ki a tātou,        

                     

Mā te mahi o ngā whenu,

mā te mahi o ngā kairaranga,

ka oti tēnei whāriki.

 

I te otinga, me titiro tātou

ki ngā mea ka puta mai.

Ā tāna wā,

me titiro hoki ki ngā raranga i makere,

nā te mea,

he korero anō ki reira.

 

The tapestry of understanding                                                  Acknowledgement to Kukupa Tirakatene. 

can not be woven by one strand alone.                  "I'm not looking for praise. What I do is from the heart."

It takes the working together of strands,

the working together of weavers

to complete such a tapestry.

 

When it is completed let us

look at the good that comes from it.

In time, take a look at those dropped stitches,

for there is a message there also.
