#Kupuhou

The name for autumn was ngahuru, an archaic word for ten. This was because autumn started during the tenth month (February–March) in the traditional calendar. Ngahuru was also the name for harvest, which occurred at this time. The saying ‘Ngahuru, kura kai, kura tangata’ (harvest-time, wealth of food, the wealth of people) indicated that food was plentiful in autumn.

Mā te wahine, mā te whenua ka ora ai te tangata
By women and land man finds life

Wahine and whenua
If we are to discuss the importance of wahine, we are also discussing the importance of whenua.

Within ancient whakapapa (genealogy), Hineahuone, the first woman, was created from the “one tapu”, the soil at Kurawaka, where it is believed is the origin of mankind, of te ira tangata.

The role of wahine, in matters of whenua, is evident within ancient whakapapa, as the two are harmonious in sustaining and the procreation of te ira tangata.

He wahine, he whenua ka ora ai te tangata- is reinforced, in particular to the term ‘ora’ which means to live, life, or alive.

Every day is international women’s day, but today on the 8th of March we join the world in celebrating it.

This waiata by the Modern Māori Quartet ‘Māreikura’. The group wrote this waiata honouring and an ode to women who they view as pillars of society.
And that they are ❤️

Enjoy 🎶
