Kōkiri 26 – Facebook competition

Published in Kōkiri 26, Ngahuru - Autumn 2012

Menemene mai! Share your photos with us and WIN PRIZES

Te Ahi Kā, the theme of this edition, refers to the burning fires of occupation our tipuna maintained to assert their rights over whenua. Without the presence of Ahi Kā other tribes could make claim to the land.

We have used the term Te Ahi Kā here to refer to people who maintain particular roles and functions in the community. They keep the home fires burning – be that at the whānau homestead, on the marae, at school, at church, sports teams as an administrator, coach or a hearty supporter – maintaining an organisation’s or group’s unique identity and distinctive contribution it makes to the wider community.

So what does Te Ahi Kā look like in your neck of the woods?

Show us what Te Ahi Kā looks like in your community and the people who keep it ‘burning’, and post your photos to the Te Ahi Kā album on the Kōkiri Facebook page: facebook.com/tepunikokiri

Post your favourite photos of ngā pēpi, tamariki, taiohi, Māma, Pāpa, Nanny, Koro, pakeke, whānau, or whānau whānui, at the beach collecting kai, working in the kitchen at the marae, coaching the school netball team, mowing the lawns at church, doing whatever it is that they do to ‘keep the home fires burning’.
