E aku nui, e aki rahi. E aku piki kōtuku, aku hou amokura, tēnā koutou katoa.
Kia oha ake te ringa ki te wāhi ngaro. O tātou mate kua taupae rā ki tua o te wharau. Te kīkī ā manu, i tēnei rā kua ngaro atu i te kitenga ā kanohi. Ko te mamae ia ka kai ki te kiri. Kia kapo ake ko te maumahara. Ko koutou ēnei ka riro nei. No reira haere, whakangaro atu. Ka hoki anō kia tātou ngā maramara a rātou mā tena koe, tēnā hoki tatou. Tēnā tātou e pehia nei i tēnei mate uruta, te mate korona. Ko te tumanako ia e noho haumaru koe me tō koutou whānau ki o koutou kainga o te motu. Nā reira kia kaha rā tātou.
We regret to advise that the 2021 Ngā Taonga ā Te Waka Toi, marking the 35th Anniversary of the prestigious annual Awards celebrating Māori artists achievements in Aotearoa, has been deferred to 2022 and to an online delivery only.
Changes in Covid-19 levels in Tamaki Makaurau and the Waikato-King Country regions over the past few weeks and months have meant that we haven’t been able to safely complete the interviewing and filming of our recipients to produce the beautiful video pieces that the quality Awards celebration is known for. Thank you for your understanding. You can expect to hear from us again in December when we will hopefully be able to announce the new Awards date in 2022 and how you can view the celebration online.
