This week on Te Reo Rangahau we look at the concept AUAU AU TE PO – a metaphor for people discussing issues at night in order to face the morrow or the next day. It is most often at night that the hinengaro or mind becomes active when people meet each other either at home or social hotspots.

In his korero this week, Tai used AUAU AU TE PO as his title to a brief paper about Te Makarini John Temara and his endeavours whilst alive but remembered in death by his peers.

Tai also reiterated the patere Te Koko ki Ohiwa stressing the word KOKO as the active agent during the outgoing and incoming tides while Te Kapo-o-te-rangi recited his patere.

Listen to their korero below:
