Te Purapura 248

E rutu ana te roimata, he pukenga wai hei tuku poroporoaki ki ngā mate e takoto ana i o tātou marae maha.
Ngā mate o te wā, o te marama, ngā kāhui wairua kua wehe atu ki te kāinga tūturu o tātou te tangata, haere, e oki atu.  Kāti, ka ea te wā ki a rātou. 

Tēnā tātou e te ao kikokiko. E rere nei te mihi whānui ki a koutou ngā mahuetanga iho o rātou mā. 
E mihi manahau ana i roto i ngā tini tauwhirotanga kua uhia nei ki runga i a tātou i tēnei kaupeka o te ngahuru
Ngā manaakitanga ki a tātou katoa. Mauriora!

NZ Music Month 2017

May is NZ Music Month, a promotion run by NZ Music Commission in association with NZ On Air, Recorded Music NZ, APRA, The Music Managers Forum and the Radio Broadcasters Association.  Check the website for details of the events being staged throughout the country during May as part of NZ Music Month. 

The May Book is a publication produced as part of NZ Music Month by the NZ Music Commission.  Te Māngai Pāho supported this publication with an ad which features six of our prominent Māori artists.  A copy of this advertisement is included below and a corresponding link has been set up on the TMP website for the six featured artists.

E Tū Whānau Song Competition

The E Tū Whānau Song Competition is back!

Music has the power to move us, to make us laugh or cry, to capture our hearts and minds, and to inspire change.

After great success in 2016, the E Tū Whānau Song Competition is back! The competition is being held once again during NZ Music Month in May, in conjunction with the network of Māori Radio Stations throughout Aotearoa. 

The competition provides participants with the opportunity to make a positive difference and to win some great cash prizes! (1st Prize $5000; 2nd Prize $2,000; 3rd Prize $1,000; Most Votes $2,000).

Entry is open NOW and all you have to do is (1) write an original song inspiring positive change and incorporating one or more of the six E Tū Whānau values, (2) upload footage of the song being performed to YouTube (or a photo slideshow with the song is ok too), then (3) complete the online entry form on the  E Tū Whānau Song Competition facebook page.  

When voting closes on 5th June the top 10 songs with the most votes will be judged to determine which songs receive 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. Judges Maisey Rika, Maaka McGregor, and Ranea Aperahama will judge songs entered based on originality and creativity, lyrics and musical composition, and how well a song reflects or relates to the E Tū Whānau kaupapa. Any musical style or genre is permitted.

Entry closes on 29th May so entries need to be submitted sooner rather than later in order to get as many votes as possible before 5th June.  Entrants must be NZ residents and aged 13 years of age or older.
It’s a great kaupapa and people who don’t enter can still get involved by voting each day in May for their favourite song entries, and to support and vote for whānau and friends who enter.  

For full competition info and rules, and to view and vote for entries received so far, go to the E Tū Whānau Song Competition facebook page.

E Tū Whānau is a movement for positive change in response to the levels of violence in NZ. It's about all of us taking responsibility to create the change we want, and nurturing and celebrating the things that make whānau strong.

No matter how big or small, we can all make a difference and create positive change within our own whānau, hapū, iwi and community.

Smartphone with Māori Language Operating System Launched

The world's first smartphone with a te reo Māori language operating system was launched on 12 April 2017.
The Huawei latest P Series smartphone offers te reo Māori as a standardised language option, with 32,000 te reo Māori phrases and words.
Priced at $1,000 or $1,200 for the P10 Plus, the user can choose whether to use their device entirely in te reo Māori, or utilise a dual English and te reo Māori keyboard.


A new Māori language app has been launched for children 5 years and under with its main focus being vocabulary development.
Pāpapa is a free, drag-and-drop activity game introducing children and their caregivers to 20 everyday Māori words and how they are pronounced.
Pāpapa developer James Porter hopes the app will support a larger number of families nationwide and abroad to start using the Māori language.
