Te whakanui i a Matariki
He tikanga tēnei mea te takoha nā ētahi iwi maha tonu huri noa i te ao. He wā 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 tētahi rōpū-ā-iwi, ki tētahi karapu hākinakina rānei.
- Mahia he mahi mā te tangata e kore kē e taea e ia ake te mahi.
- Kimihia he koha mā ngā rawakore me ngā kaumātua kei tō takiwa e noho ana.
- Whakawhāititia ō whakaaro ki tētahi mahi.
- Rapua he mea kei te takoto kau i te kāinga kāhore e whakamahia ana e koe, ka hoatu noa atu.
- Kohikohia he kai nō te māra, ka hoatu ai i tētahi wāhanga.
- Hoatu he kai ki te pēke kai i te hokomaha.
- Whakaminea ētahi o tō whānau, o tō hapori rānei, kātahi ka whiriwhiri kaupapa takoha ki tō hapori, ki tō marae, rōpū-ā-iwi rānei.
