Ko te whanau te kaupapa matua, hei tā te karapū waka ama o Hoe Aroha Whānau o Mauao

Nō te tau kotahi mano e iwa rau e iwa tekau ma whitu I whakatū te karapu o Hoe Aroha Whanau o Mauao mō te hunga hiakai ki te hakinakina I Maunganui nei.

Tokorima ngā mema o te whānau Dickson ka hoe mō te karapū kotahi o Hoe Aroha Whānau o Mauao hei te Kohitatea. 

Hei tā Maia Wharekura, “Ko te haere atu ki te hoe te waka kia marama ai ngā Tamariki tēnei me re whakataetae, Ko tāku i tēnei wa kia kawe i a rātou kia waia ai ki o rātou moana. Kia waia ai ki o rātou moana i ngā marama tata nei kua kitea te marea nei kua were atu i te tuawhenua na te mea Kaare rātou waia ki to tātou Moana.”

E ai ki to rātou kaiako, a Wharekura, he kapa tino pai rātou, ā, ko te hononga ā Whanau te take.

Hei tāna, “Ko te kaupapa waka he kaupapa whānau heoi ano ko te whānau Rikihana ki roto i tetahi waka me ana uri e hoe ana. Tuturu a Matapihi ki te hono mai ki tēnei kaupapa. ki Te whakahaere I ngā wWka Ama o te waahi nei o Hoe Aroha Whanau o Mauao.”

Mena ka toa rātou, ka hinga ranei, e mohiotia ngā kaihoe nei ka kite tonu i ngā hononga a whānau ki runga, ki waho hoki i te Moana.
