Native Affairs - He tuatangata māia

He kaiwaiata Karaitiana kaha rawa a Steve Apirana no Aotearoa. 

E rima ngā kōpae waiata kua whakarewahia e ia, kua hāere hoki ia ki ngā tōpito katoa o te aō ki te kawe i ōna karere e hāngai ana ki āna whakapono. Kua tu ia ki te waiata ki ngā whare here, ngā kura, ngā pāparakāuta me ngā hāhi o te ao. 

Heoi ehara tōna huarahi i te huarahi māmā noaiho, i roto i āna waiata ka puta te whānuitanga o ngā raru kua kaha pēhi i a ia i tōna oranga, ara ko te noho kainga kore, ngā raru ngangara, me te noho ko ia anake hei kaitiaki mo āna tamariki.  

I hāere a Iulia Leilua ki te kāinga o tōna whāea i Tikitiki ki te kōrero ki tēnei tangata pūmanawa, i a ia e haerērē ana ki ngā tōpito katoa o Te Tairāwhiti.
