Kia Niwha te Ngaakau, Kiriata o te Waa

“Ahakoa he moroiti he moroiti naa te aroha…” Although it is small, it is given with love…

Our next choice for the moment is our most recent Hiki Wairua video produced by our amazing team behind the scenes – Te Whaanau Whiu. To celebrate Mother’s Day our team asked various whaanau to send a video of themselves singing or signing along to the well renowned waiata – Te Aroha. The team put a beautiful spin on the video by incorporating the waiata – Love Lifted Me, by Kenny Rogers. This video can be used to celebrate any kaupapa no matter how big or small, he pounamu!
