UENUKU WINS IWI SNOW CHAMPS
Uenuku skiers and snowboarders have taken the Aotearoa Iwi Snow Championships for primary and secondary schools.

Uenuku was named the overall iwi champion after both its primary school team and its secondary school team won their individual championships on Ruapehu yesterday (Monday, 8 September).

Many Uenuku individual competitors also won their events or were placed in the top three.

Yesterday’s successes follow on from a gold medal at the North Island Primary School championships last week, when the Raetihi School Snow Academy was named the best snowboard team in the motu. A week earlier, the school’s skiers competed and were successful in moving up their rankings significantly.

Look out for a full report in our Uenuku Charitable Trust newsletter, due out soon.

There have been many, many requests for the kupu for the waiata introduced at our Uenuku roadshow presentations throughout Aotearoa over the past month (July 2014). Anei ngā kupu.

Uenuku E Hora:

Uenuku e noho nei
Mai Ruapehu ki Tangaroa e
Nei rā mātou, mauri ora
Ko te iti ko te rahi
E te iwi e
Manganui-a-te-ao
Ko te Waimarino
Whakawhiti mai rā ki Raetihi

Uenuku e hora nei
Karapoti te whenua o ngā tupuna
Ko te tini ko te mano
Hoki hoki mai rā
I ngā huarahi o te motu e
E huri e huri, ko te pito o te ika
Uenuku, Tamahaki, Tamakana e

Haere mai x 3

Uenuku, living upon the lands Between Ruapehu and the sea
This is us: goodwill to all
Whether we are many or few
We remain one people
From Manganui-a-te-ao Traversing the Waimarino
And then back across to Raetihi

Uenuku spread wide and far
We protect and surround our ancestral lands
The multitudes of Uenuku uri
We beckon you home upon the many roads that will lead you back to us
We abound in the central North Island
Known by our ancestral identities Uenuku, Tamahaki and Tamakana

We call you home … our beckoning shall not cease

(He tāonga tuku nā Mahanga Williams rātou ko Teina Boasa-Dean ko Nehi Bryce, July 2014)
