This is my introduction to my family and where my family come from.
It is important in my culture to share this with others.
When we do this we make connections and from this connections friends are made.
In our hub there are new faces, old faces and those you have seen before, this year we would like you to share who you are and where your family has come from.
|Subsequently making connections to others cultures and perspectives.|
Me tīmata rawe koe ki te take ka eke ai koe ki te tihi o te maunga.
You must begin at the beginning of the mountain to get to the summit.
Take no shortcuts.
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa
