Te whakanui i a Matariki
He tikanga tenei mea te takoha na etahi iwi maha tonu huri noa i te ao. He wa a Matariki hei manaaki i te hunga rawakore. Ko te tikanga, he hoatu herekore, he hoatu noa atu i runga i te aroha.
- Hoatu mea i runga i te aroha ki tetahi ropu-a-iwi, ki tetahi karapu hakinakina ranei.
- Mahia he mahi ma te tangata e kore ke e taea e ia ake te mahi.
- Kimihia he koha ma nga rawakore me nga kaumatua kei to takiwa e noho ana.
- Whakawhaititia o whakaaro ki tetahi mahi.
- Rapua he mea kei te takoto kau i te kainga kahore e whakamahia ana e koe, ka hoatu noa atu.
- Kohikohia he kai no te mara, ka hoatu ai i tetahi wahanga.
- Hoatu he kai ki te peke kai i te hokomaha.
- Whakaminea etahi o to whanau, o to hapori ranei, katahi ka whiriwhiri kaupapa takoha ki to hapori, ki to marae, ropu-a-iwi ranei.
