Turangawaewae: My Place to Stand!
Where am I from? Where am I connected? What is special to me? Where do I belong? Where do I feel most at home?
These are the questions we ask ourselves when we consider our Turangawaewae. It is a powerful thing to feel connected to a place, that your roots are there; you might feel a sense of belonging and, you are calm and complete in that place. This is Turangawaewae; your place to stand.
Ko Tangi te Keo te Maunga
Ko te Whanganui a Tara te Moana
Ko Whetukairangi te Marae
Ko te Upoko o te Ika taku Turangawaewae!
