She and 250 students, teachers, faculty and family members from the Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Ruamata school in Roturua, Aotearoa traveled nearly 4,500 miles from their homeland to Hawaii Island last month, much as their Maori ancestors had first done about 1000 years ago, and shared their cultural history at Kanu o Ka Aina school on Aug. 20. Roturua, set on its namesake lake on New Zealand’s North Island, is a cultural center for the indigenous Maori people, who were their country’s first inhabitants. They, like the native Hawaiians, used the stars and ocean currents as navigational guides while venturing across the Pacific in voyaging canoes from their ancestral Polynesian homeland. As a ho’okipa (welcome) ceremony, Kanu kindergarten through twelfth graders lined up on the front lawn to greet the New Zealand group with traditional Hawaiian songs and chants that resonated with the visitors as they clapped along. The trip was one of several they have taken over the years, re-tracing the steps of their ancestors. “We have been to Tahiti and other places where our canoes landed and have stories about our ancestors leaving from here (Hawaii Island) so it was just natural and logical that we would come here too,” DeWes explains. Continuing the ceremony, Principal DeWes presented a wooden sea creature carving that she called “symbolic of peace and unity” to Kanu’s Po’o Kula (head of school) Mahina Duarte and Principal Allyson Tamura. Lei were presented by Kanu students to each of the visitors. Following the ceremony, visiting students spent time with Auntie DeeDee Bertlemann and Uncle Bobby Varretto’s third grade class, who performed a mele (song) and discussed similarities and differences between the native Hawaiian and Maori languages, as well as subject matters taught in school. “I love the way the teachers interact with the children in the classroom here,” DeWes says. “Thirty years ago we established our school with our own philosophy.” In the concluding ho’ike (exchange of song and dance), Maori students performed a hula dance and Makali`i’ Pwo Chadd Paishon and Pomai Bertlemann led chants. “We’ve come ‘home’ and re-established a bond and relationship that we had forgotten,” DeWes remarks. “When (Paishon) talked about remembering, it reminded me of the re-ignited memory which we had lost.” The Aotearoa school group returned home on Aug. 24, but the bond with their Hawaiian ties remains strong. “We will stay in touch. There are lots of similarities (between our cultures) and we desire to revive our language and cultural practices. We were in a situation 30 years ago where it was almost extinct, so it’s a conscious effort,” DeWes concludes. LANDRY FULLER North Hawaii News
