Tīmoti Kāretu

1937 -

I whānau mai ai a Tīmoti Karetu i te tau 1937, he uri ia nō Ngāi Tūhoe rāua ko Ngāti Kahungunu. He mātanga ia o te reo Māori, he tohunga tito waiata, he tohunga hoki ia ki ngā waiata me ngā haka a tāua, a te Māori. Ka mutu, e mōhiotia whānuitia ana ia ki ngā tōpito o te ao mō tāna whakapeto ngoi ki te whakarauora i te reo Māori.

Ngā Kupu

Aue!  taukuri aku taumata kōrero
Aue!  taukuri aku taumata kōrero

Ka kai atu rā aku mata ki te mokopuna
a te motu
Te mauri i pōtaea, Te Ata-i-rangi-kaahu
Ki te tihi tapu e moe nei ngā rangatira
Ki te wai tipua e rere nei

Ka tau mai ai ki runga o Tūrangawaewae
Tiro atu ki te huinga tangata
Ka kimi kau ake i ngā kākā waha nui,
I ngā puna mātauranga o te ao tawhito
Ka kimi, ka kimi tē kitea

I roto i te ngahurutanga o ngā tau
Pau puku ana rātou ki te pō
Papā te whatitiri,
Hikohiko te uira
Ka horo ngā tihi maunga
Ka haruru te whenua
Koinei rā ō rātou tohu i te haerenga
Mōwai ana te whenua e takoto nei
Āe, e tātou mā, te mūrau a te tini
Te wenerau a te mano
E noho ana tātou i te raru, i te pani

Nō reira, whītikiria te hope ki te maurea whiritoi
Nanaiore ki te aka matua
Kia puritia te aho wānanga
Hei kawe i te kura huna
Hei kupu taurangi ki muri nei,
'He kākano rangatira
E kore e ngaro'
Hei!

Ngā whakamārama

Ko tēnei waiata ā-ringa i titoa hei mihi mā ngā akonga o Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato ki a Te Ata-i-rangi-kaahu me tōna iwi i te hui whakanui i tōna whakawahinga i te tau 1982.
