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

E noho ana i te ranga māheuheu
Ka titiro whakarunga ki ngā whetū o te rangi
Āritarita noa , āritarita noa
Engari tē riro mai ki te kapu o taku ringa e
Ko te rite ki ngā taonga a ōku tīpuna
E kōrerotia nei i te ao, i te pō, i te ao,
i te pō
Āe rānei te mau i ahau, āe rānei te ngaro
ki te pō, oti atu
Whakapakari nei au, te rangatahi, ki te
pupuri
Me te maumahara anō hoki ki tā Apirana
i kī ai
'Me mātua whare whakairo ka kīia te marae
he marae,
Me mātua kōrero Māori te tangata e kīia ai
he Māori'
Anei taku whakahoki ki a koe, e koro e,
Ahakoa ko te ātārangi noa iho o te whenua
kei ahau
Ahakoa te reo kāore i ahau
Kei te oho taku mauri, kei te oho taku
wairua
Kei te rongo tonu au i te wehi, kei te mau
tonu taku mana,
Me pēhea kē atu hoki?
Ko au nei rā te whakatinanatanga o aku
tīpuna e moe mai rā i Paerau.
Anei rā taku Māoritanga e mau nei i
aku kanohi
E mau nei i taku tinana, arā, ko taku
kiri parauri
Kia whakataukī ake ahau
'E kore e hekeheke, he kākano rangatira'
Tihē mauri ora!

Ngā whakamārama

He ngeri tēnei i titoa i runga i te whakahau a ngā akonga kia āta titoa he ngeri mā rātou ake.  I waiho e rātou hei ngeri ki ngā whakataetae nui o te motu i tū nei ki Ākarana i te tau 1981.
