Ngā Titonga Waiata


Arā noa atu ngā tini kaupapa i titoa ai ngā waiata me ōna pānga katoa ki te ahurea Māori. Me kī rā, he pātaka iringa kōrero ngā waiata e pupuri ai i ngā āhuatanga mō neherā i kōrerohia ai ngā ingoa tūpuna, ngā wāhi i ekengia me ngā mahi i kawea.

Ko taku muri, taku mua

Nō te huringa o te rautau 1900, kātahi anō ka tīkina atu e te kaitito Māori tētahi taki Pākehā hei rangi matua mō tana waiata, hei whakanikoniko i āna kupu, hei whakarata hoki i te hunga whakarongo. Ka rerekē rawa atu ngā piki me ngā hiki o ngā rangi hou nei i ā ngā rangi mōteatea e taungatia ana, ā, he mahi i tere kapohia e ngā kaitito puta noa i Aotearoa. He ahunga e waingōhia ai te mau o ngā kupu o ēnei waiata hou.

E ai ki te kōrero, nō Te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao, nā Tā Āpirana Ngata rātou ko Paraire Tomoana, ko Te Puea Hērangi hoki i tīmata te tāpiri ringa ki ngā waiata e mōhiotia whānuitia ana e tātou ināianei, he waiata ā-ringa.

Kāore hoki i pērā rawa te nui o ngā waiata i puta i Te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao i ngā rau waiata i puta i Te Pakanga Tuarua o te Ao engari, katoa ēnā waiata he rongonui, ā, e waiatatia tonuhia ana ērā waiata katoa e ngā iwi katoa i tēnei wā. Koinei i kīia ai, ‘Ko taku muri, taku mua’.

Nā konei, ka mārama tātou ngā uri ki tō te kaitito whakaaro i ōna wā, ā, ki tā te tupuna titiro ki tōna ao. Kia tahuri ake ki ngā waiata i titoa i te wā o Te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao, e taea anō ai ēnei āhuatanga te tūtohi atu.

Te whakairo kupu

'I te wā i a rātou mā

Ko te kupu te tīmatanga

Ko te kupu te whakamutunga

Ko te kori i hanga noa...'

mai i te waiata, E nanawe ake ana i ahau nā Tīmoti Kāretu. 

Hei tā Tīmoti Kāretu, ko ngā āhuatanga tito waiata e tino mōhio ai te tangata nō te wā o Te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao taua waiata rā, ko te ‘...ngāwari me te tau o te kupu, ki te hōhonu o te whakaaro me te aroha nui e ahu mai ana i ngā kupu o ngā waiata nei.’

Arā ia, ko te kupu me te kaupapa i titoa ai te waiata ngā mea nui. Nā ngā kupu rā i whakatinana ai, i tō ai ngā kāre ā-roto huhua o te whatumanawa. E mīharo atu ana ki te māmā o te kupu me te reka o te rangi ki te taringa.

He waiata i titoa hei poroporoaki i ngā hōia i tō rātou wehenga ki te mura o te ahi, hei tangi ki ērā i ngaro atu rā, hei tuku aroha ki te whaiāipo, hei pōwhiri i ngā mōrehu i waimarie ki te hoki mai, hei hari mā ngā hōia i a rātou e tāwhai ana. Ko Tipirere tētahi tauira o aua momo waiata.

E mōhiotia ana ko te rangi Pākehā i tīkina atu ai ko ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary(external link)’ a Jack Judge. I tino rata ngā kaitito o nehe ki ngā waiata Pākehā me ōna rangi. Ka whakamāoritia, ka waiatatia, ānō nei he waiata Māori kē aua waiata. Kāore i tino mōhiotia nā wai ngā kupu o Tiripere i whakamāori, engari, ko te whakaaro ia nā Tā Āpirana Ngata.

He kāripōhi Tipirere nā National Reserve Headquarters, Te Whanganui-a-Tara, ca.

Tipirere(external link)

He roa te wā ki Tipirere
He tino mamao
He roa te wā ki Tipirere
Ki taku kōtiro
E noho Pikatiri
Hei konā Rehita Koea
He mamao rawa Tipirere
Ka tae ahua (ahau).

I waiatatia tuatahitia te waiata Tipirere e Te Hokowhitu-a-Tū nō rātou i pakanga ai ki te kauhanga riri, i Wīwī i ngā tau 1916-1918.

Ko Koe Niu Tireni

Ko tētahi atu tauira mō te tāwhai haere, ko Ko koe Niu Tireni.  Ko te karere o roto i te waiata mō te hono ki a Ingarangi e tīahoaho ana te kitea. Me whai wāhi atu te ao Māori ki te taunaki i te karanga a Ingarangi.

Ko koe Niu Tireni,
Te kuini o te ao
Arohaina nei e au,
Ko koe tangihia
Ko koe e mihia
Ko koe te kīanga pai,
Te au taku moe
Te aroha ki a koe,
I te roa o te rā.

Korihi: x2

Ka whai mai rā te aroha
A huri noa te ao.

Tā Āpirana Ngata

Te Ope Tuatahi - 1916

Ko Te Ope Tuatahi (external link)tētahi o ā Tā Āpirana waiata maha i kaha te waiatatia i te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao. Ko tōna pūtake he whakaatu i ngā ekenga taumata o ngā Māori i tae atu ki te pakanga hei hōia me te whakaatu i te hiahia kia tokomaha ake ngā hōia. I whakaingoatia ngā rohe me ngā iwi i kaha tautoko kia haere. I whakatūria e Ngata rāua ko Paraire Tomoana ētahi kapa haka hei kohikohi moni mō te Pūtea Hōia Māori. Ka waiatatia tēnei waiata i ngā ngahau puta i Aotearoa. Nō Ngāti Kahungunu, nō Tūranganui-a-Kiwa, nō Ngāti Porou anō hoki ngā kapa matua.

Nā Tomoana ngā kupu mō te whiti tuatoru. He kaitautāwhi rāua ki a rāua mō te tito waiata.

Te ope tuatahi
Nō Aotearoa,
Nō Te Waipounamu,
Nō ngā tai e whā,
Ko koutou ēnā
E ngā rau e rima,
Te Hokowhitu toa
A Tūmatauenga:
I hinga ki Īhipa,
Ki Karipori rā ia;
E ngau nei te aroha,
Me te mamae.

Te ope tuarua
Nō Māhaki rawa:
Nō Hauiti koe,
Nā Porourangi:
I haere ai Henare
Me tō Wīwī,
I patu ki te pakanga,
Ki Paranihi rā ia.
Ko wai he mōrehu
Hei kawe kōrero
Ki te iwi nui e,
Taukuri nei.

Te ope tuaiwa
Nō Te Arawa,
Nō Te Tai Rāwhiti,
Nō Kahungunu,
E haere ana ’hau
Ki runga o Wīwī
Ki reira ‘hau nei,
E tangi ai.
Me mihi kau atu
I te nuku o te whenua,
Hei konei rā e,
E te tau pūmau.

Hei kōpaki atu i ētahi atu waiata a Tā Āpirana Ngata i titoa mō te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Wā, ko ēnei e whai ake nei:

Karangatia rā - 1919

He waiata ā-ringa tēnei ki ngā mōrehu o Te Hokowhitu-a-Tū i tō rātou hokinga mai ki te hau kāinga kia mihia ai rātou, te hunga ora me te hunga mate.

Karangatia rā! Karangatia rā! 

Powhiritia rā! Ngā iwi nei. 
Ngā mate tini, haere mai! 
Te Hui aroha 
mou e Wi Pere. 
Ngau nei te aroha me te mamae. 

Ngā mate tini! Ngā mate tini, 
Kei Paranihi, haria mai rā. 
Kia tangihia ki te marae! 
Te Hui aroha 
mou e te Wiwi 
Ngau nei te aroha me te mamae. 

Ngā toki heke! Ngā toki heke! 
Maringi kino, e toha mai rā 
I te whenua pamamao 
E karanga ana i 
Te Hui Aroha, 
Kia pumau te aroha me te mamae!

Kia ora rā koutou - 1919

I horahia tuatahitia tēnei waiata e ngā tamāhine o Te Kura o Hukarere ki te tūmatanui, ā, i rangona i te Hui Aroha i Tūranganui-a-Kiwa hei pōwhiri whakatau whakaharahara ki ngā ika a whiro.

E ta ma! he marie, 
Na te Ariki 
Koutou i tohu, 
Kia ora tonu. 
Na te aroha o te Kaihanga, 
Kia ora ra koutou! 

Nau mai, e te iwi 
Ki te marae 
Pae o te riri 
Mai onamata. 
Whiua te aroha 
Ki nga hoia, 
Kia ora ra koutou. 

E te iwi, kia toa, 
Whaia ko te kaha, 
Whiua te aroha 
Ki nga hoia. 
Kei wiri ra ‘hau, 
Kia tangi tatou, 
Kia ora ra koutou!

Paraire Tomoana

Ko tētahi kaitito i kaha rangona i te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao i te hira o āna titonga ki ngā momo hui, ko Paraire Tomoana o Ngāti Kahungunu. Ko tana waiata tangi, arā, ko E Pari Rā(external link) tētahi waiata rongonui i hōrapa ki te motu hei tangi i ērā kāore i waimarie ki te hoki mai. Mō Pōhau Ellison tēnei waiata i mate mai rā i te tāhuna o te riri, ā, e kaha tonu ana te waiatatia i ēnei rā nei. He ngaringari hoki te waiata nei mō Te Taua Moana o Aotearoa.

E Pari Rā - 1918

E pari rā ngā tai ki te ākau
E hotu rā ko taku manawa
Auē me tangi noa ahau i muri nei
Te iwi e
He ngākau tangi noa

Kōrihi:
Tēnā rā tahuri mai, e te tau te aroha
Tēnei rā ahau te tangi nei mōhou kua wehe nei
Haere rā mahara mai, e te tau kia mau ki a au
Haere rā ka tūturu ahau haere rā

Ngaro noa koe, e tama, i ngā marae nei
Ko te aroha rā, e tama, e pēhi kino nei
Kei Īhipa koe, e tama, kei Karipori rā
Kei Paranehe koe, e tama, haere, haere rā
Haere rā, e tama, haere rā
Mauria rā te aroha i ahau
Auē me tangi noa ahau i muri nei
Te iwi e
He ngākau tangi noa

Nei rā ētahi atu titonga o Paraire Tomoana:

I Runga o ngā Puke - 1915

He waiata e tino makau ana i te poroporoakitanga i Te Ope Māori Tuarua i Te Whanganui-a-Tara i tō rātou whakakopatanga atu ki te pakanga ki pāmamao. Nā te taokete o Tomoana i tono kia tito waiata mō ōna kitenga me ōna hokinga mahara i a ia e takoto ana ki te hōhipera i Ingarangi.

I runga o ngā puke 
Ka pā mai toa reo; 
Hau maiangi hei kawe mai. 
He reo aroha pātai ana mai. 
"He aha tau e, pirangi nei?"

Kia awhi kau atu 
Ki tō tinana i ngaro, 
E ngaro nei i au 
i ēnei ra
Ko tōu aroha, 
Ko tōku aroha, 
Ka mutu pea! 
Aue! Te tau!

Pōkarekare Ana - 1912

Kātahi te waiata aroha hira ko Pōkarekare Ana puta ki ngā tai katoa! Ahakoa i titoa i mua i te tīmatanga o te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao, i waiatatia whānuitia hei mahara i ngā ipo i mahue mai.

Pōkarekare ana 
ngā wai o Waiapu, 
Whiti atu koe hine 
marino ana e.

E hine e 
hoki mai ra. 
Ka mate ahau 
I te aroha e.

Tuhituhi taku reta 
tuku atu taku rīngi, 
Kia kite tō iwi 
raru raru ana e.

Whati whati taku pene 
ka pau aku pepa, 
Ko taku aroha 
mau tonu ana e.

E kore te aroha 
e maroke i te rā, 
Mākūkū tonu i 
aku roimata e.

 

Ko tā Tīmoti Kāretu:

‘Ko tētahi pea o ngā waiata kua kaha nei te hau o ōna rongo ko tēnei e tohea nei nā wai kē rā i tito. Ko ngā kaitito e tohea nei ko Paraire Tomoana rāua ko Tā Āpirana Ngata, ka mutu kei ia kaitito anō āna kaitautāwhi’ - Kia Rōnaki, wh. 95

Hoea Rā Te Waka Nei - 1917

He waiata poi waka tēnei e tono ana ki ngā iwi kia tuku moni ki ā rātou uri e pakanga ana i Wīwī. Tū ai ēnei konohete penapena pūtea i te motu hei taunaki i te Pūtea Hōia Māori.

Haere mai e hine mā, 
Me ngā taonga o te wā, 
He reo karanga i katoa, 
Haere mai ki au.
 
Hoea rā te waka nei. 
Hoea, hoea ki te pae 
Mā te poi e karawhiu 
E rāhui i te pai.

Me pehea rā e taea ai 
Te aroha pehi kino nei, 
Mō te tau i pamamao 
Haere mai ki au! 

Koia ra e hine mā 
Koha kore noa te pai. 
Haere me te atawhai 
Ka rahui i te pai. 

Na te ngākau tangi ra 
Ko te tiwaiwaka nei 
Te poi ka hoea atu nei 
He tohu no te pai.

Hoki, Hoki Tonu Mai - 1918

Ka ngaro atu rā ngā hautoa ki tāwāhi, ki te pakanga, ka noho mai ngā whaiāipo ki muri nei kōrangaranga ai. Aua atu, ka panonihia hei hoa mō te poi, ā, e kaha kē ake ana te hari o te rangi. He tauira anō tēnei mō te tiki atu i te rangi o te ao Pākehā. 

Hokihoki tonu mai 
Te wairua o te tau
Ki te awhi Reinga
Ki tēnei kiri e.

Ka pinea koe e ahau
Ki te pine o te aroha
Ki te pine e kore nei
E waikura e.

Tahi Nei Taru Kino - 191?

He waiata ā-ringa, he waiata aroha hoki tēnei e kaingākautia ana e ngā iwi. Ko tōna pūtake, ko te whakaatu i te mahara i roto mō te aroha.

Tahi nei taru kino 
Mahi whai-ā-ipo 
Kei te wehenga 
Aroha kau ana 

Haere mai rā 
Ki ahau nei rā 
Te aroha tino nui 
Haere mai 

He aha kei taku uma 
Pākikini nei ? 
He aroha rānei? 
He aha rānei? 

Titiro atu au 
Tahuri kē koe 
Kei roto i a koe 
Pīrangi mai ana 

Kore ua e noho 
Hoatu taku ringa 
Kei huri kē koe 
Whakakaitoa i muri

Te Puea Hērangi

Kāore a Te Puea Hērangi i whakaae ki te ture me uru ngā tama toa o Tainui ki te pakanga, i te mea, kāore tonu i ea tā te kāwana raupatu i ngā whenua o Waikato. Ko Ngā Rā o Hune hei whakatauira i ētahi atu titonga kaupapa nō te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao. Ina tirotirohia ngā kupu nei, mārakerake ana te kitea te iri mārō hoki o te manawa o Te Puea ki tēnei kaupapa.

Ngā Rā o Hune

Ngā rā o Hune ka ara te pakanga
Ki roto o Waikato ka riro ko Te Rau
Me tana Hokowhitu tūria atu rā
Te tatau o te whare o te hoariri
Te tatau o te whare o te hoariri

Me whakatupu ki te hua o te rengarenga
Me whakapakari ki te hua o te kawariki
Rukuhia atu rā Te Moana a Kiwa
E te iwi nui tonu kia manawanui
E te iwi nui tonu kia manawanui

Kūpapa rapua te mea i ngaro nei
Ka hoki tātou ki runga ki ngā tongi
Hei kawe i a tātou ki runga ki te oranga
Hei kawe i a tātou ki runga ki te oranga
Hei kawe i a tātou ki runga ki te oranga

Tēnā Kāwana whakapaua tō kaha
I whea koe i mua rā i taku taioretanga
Ka tukua e koe kia tūtāhangatia
Ka āhei tāua i te peka tītoki
Ka āhei tāua i te peka tītoki

Autoro ki waho rā ka whēke koe i ahau
E ka murumurua e māua ko taku ipo
Koia hoki tēnā ngā tongi o mua rā
E ka murumurua e māua ko taku ipo
E ka murumurua e māua ko taku ipo

Me kore te rāhui he pane he toitū
E ka kamukamu ki ngā mahi koia hoki
Whatiwhati te kakau o te paipa kia poto
Kia ngau kau ki te kōhua koia hoki
Kia ngau kau ki te kōhua koia hoki

Kāti nei e te iwi tō kumekume roa
Kei mau tātou i te rā whakawā
I te rā whakawā i te rā whakawā
I te rā whakawā o te atua
I te rā whakawā o te atua

Nau mai Kāwana ki runga o Waikato
Whakatikahia rā tō hara ki te iwi
I riro whenua atu me hoki whenua mai
I te rā o Matirā kua hokia e
I te rā o Matirā kua hokia e

Tāiri te aroha i ā hā hā
Toro mai ō ringa me aroha tāua
Auē hī, auē hā
Auē hei auē, auē hei auē
Tīhei mauri ora hī
