A new series exploring the many facets of Maori faith – from Ratana to Ringatu, from Mormon to Muslim – has premiered on Maori Television’s 100 per cent Maori language channel, Te Reo.
HE IWI WHAKAPONO screens every Sunday at 7.00 PM and is also available to view on-demand on the website www.maoritelevision.com. Presenter Ruia Aperahama discusses with guests the origins, rituals, prayers and challenges of staying true to your belief in this modern and changing world.
Head of Te Reo channel, Eruera Morgan, says every iwi have had their own unique view of the universe, their own korero and their own cosmology. “With the advent of colonisation, many were converted to various denominations. A few even converted some denominations to themselves. But through all this, the one constant has been the search – te kimi noa, te rapu noa ki te taketake, ki te whakapono.”
Ruia Aperahama is best known as a leading Maori composer and recording artist. He grew up within Ratana Pa, where band and choir were a part of daily life. It also influenced his spiritual journey, a journey which has permeated all of his work as an artist and as a broadcaster.
Ko Hareruia Aperahama te kaiwhakataki o HE IWI WHAKAPONO, e tuhura nei i ngā aronga maha o te whakapono Māori. Mai i te haahi Rātana ki te Mormon, Ringatū, Muslim, Katorika, ka matapakihia e Ruia me ana manuhiri te takenga mai o te haahi, ngā tikanga, ngā karakia me ngā wero kia noho tūturu tonu ki tāu e whakapono ana, i roto i tēnei ao hurihuri.
He tangata rongonui a Ruia Aperahama hei kaitito Māori me te kaiwaiata. I pakeke mai a ia i roto i te Pā o Rātana, otirā he tikanga te Pēne me te Tira ia rā, i roto i tō rātau oranga. Nā tērā i whakaawe tana hīkoi ā-wairua, he hīkoi kua puta i te katoa o ana mahi hei kaiwaiata, kaipāpāho hoki.
