SMALL BUSINESS AND MONEY MANAGEMENT CLASSES 0800 355 553 I www.twoa.ac.nz TTT003f Tackling te reo for the future Porirua born and raised rugby star Tamati Ellison is fronting an online video campaign to generate aware- ness for Maori Language Week. The clip, Manaakitanga Moments, has been made for Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Maori (the Maori Language Commission). In the two-part promo, Ellison dreams of being a rugby star only to be brought back to reality by Nan , played by Puti Mackey. Ellison, a product of Northern United who went on to play for the Hurricanes and All Blacks, is passionate about te reo Maori and enjoyed playing the lead role in the promo. I think it s important that Maori and the entire nation nurture and grow our language so that we can empower others by sharing what makes Aotearoa unique. Various themes of manaakitanga (sharing, caring or hospitality) are woven into the narrative. Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Maori chief executive Glenis Philip- Barbara says manaakitanga is a broad theme and can be interpreted many ways. In these promos we have chosen to apply manaakitanga to a rugby context as a means of acknowledging our national role as hosts for Rugby World Cup 2011. But manaakitanga can also mean showing kindness, caring for others, treating people with respect, nurturing relationships and more. As such, we hope to see a range of projects and initiatives across the nation reflecting this theme through- out Maori Language Week. Part one of the promo was released last week, and the second instalment yesterday. The promos will also fea- ture on Maori Television in the lead- up to Maori Language Week which begins on July 4. Ms Philip-Barbara says they are grateful to Ellison for lending his profile and support to the language this year. His contribution alongside the contributions of the nation through- out Maori Language Week will help build recognition for the language as a living treasure.

Steel-and-wood pou almost completed By KRIS DANDO Carving up: Takapuwahia carver Tana Salzman has been a busy man these past months, giving his chisels a solid workout as he painstakingly prepares the pou that will greet visitors to, and residents of, his suburb. Takapuwahia s pou are likely to be up in July. That s the hope from carver Tana Salzman, who has been putting in eight-hour days on the project since January. The budget of $20,000 -- gained through Porirua City Council s village strategy pro- gramme -- has been pushed to the limit, he says, with the stainless steel-and-wood struc- tures proving a test of his skill. There s probably $12,000 worth of steel there, maybe even $13,000, he said. Whether I ve been carving or not, there s always something to do, and it s taking a while, longer than I thought it would. It was originally envisioned the two pou would be finished by the end of June, but this has been pushed out further. After discussion among the community and Ngati Toa in 2010, it was decided the three- metre-high pou would mark the entrance to the suburb. This follows work to upgrade streets in Takapuwahia during the summer. The pou, to be set up either side of the bottom of Te Hiko St, will depict the prow and stern of a waka. The consensus was to have a modern design, but reflecting Ngati Toa s journey to come to Porirua. Porirua City councillor Liz Kelly, who is Ngati Toa, said she was really excited to see the pou reach fruition and could not wait for them to go up. She would love to see more pou around the city, such as at the entrances to Porirua or at prominent places like the water- front.
