Airini Ngā Roimata Grennell 1910-1988 (Ngāti Tama, Ngāti Mutunga, Ngāi Tahu)

I whānau mai a Airini Ngā Roimata Grennell i Wharekauri i te tau 1910, ka 10 ana tau ka neke tana whānau ki Akaroa. Ka kuraina ia i te Kura Kōhine o Ngākau Tapu i Ōtautahi, he toa ki te purei haupōro, poitarawhiti hoki mō tana rohe. Ka tamāhine ana, ka tae ki Ingarangi i runga i tana mōhio ki te waiata, ka whāia e ia ngā tohu ako LTCL me LRMS i te waiata me te ako purei piana.

Nō tana hoki mainga ki Aotearoa ka whakatūngia e rātou ko tana whānau te tira waiata o Koukourarata hei kohi pūtea mō te wā o te pōhara nui i ngā tau 1930. Ka kuhu hoki ki Te Tira Waiata Māori i a Te Uira Mānihera rāua ko Inia Te Wiata. Nā te minita, nā Rev A.J. Seamer i tū ai te tira. Ka tae te tira ki Ahitereiria, ki Ingarangi me Īnia, ka mutu ngā mahi i te tau 1938. I te reka o tana reo ka kīia ko ia ‘Te Reo Rōreka o Wharekauri.’

I tēnei rekoata i pōwhiritia e Airini Grennell te minenga i te reo Māori.
