In what way?

I have long adhered to one question I constantly ask myself, In what way does this benefit my people? It is a question that has held me in good stead as I will never support anything that is not good for my people.  This question is part of navigational tools I use to map the course and take my bearings giving me a steady hand on the helm.

I value my culture and as such live to see it lived to its fullest. When the waka takes its self off course the foundations of my culture becomes the guiding star that leads.   My people celebrate life and our culture  in quite wonderous ways. Doing this by waiata (song) and Kapahaka (dance) the people gather together as one. There is a sense of belonging that fills the senses as does the sound and movement fill the soul-stirring ancient connections that move one beyond the ordinary and into the extraordinary where manna loves and breathes freely.

To follow or mimic another culture especially one that has caused such suffering as that done to our people is beyond my comprehension.  I urge our people to be who they are always for it is a greatness that is theirs alone and should never be positioned to be replaced by that of a culture that has not been good for our people.  To allow such folly is to continue the downward spiral of manna being destroyed and surely there is nothing to celebrate in that.

Rather I would see the people celebrate their way of being and gathered as one for there is truth in that and always in truth there is manna. It is this which shall never fail them.

God Bless you my people

About TeManawa te ao

Build on truth for lasting foundations Introduction I am Debra Ann Potroz, my hapu is Ngaati Mahuta. Born Under the watchful eyes of Mount Taranaki in Aotearoa Land of the long white cloud(NZ) I am descended from a long line of Kings. I was raised by my Tupuna, great ancestors of the past. On July 4th 2007 I was informed by an elder of the council of elders I received and in response accepted succession to the Maori Throne (confirmed Oct 2011). Later in the year this same Kaumatua informed me Mother of the Nations had been conferred adding the elders had called me TeManawa (The Heart) by which I was to be known. Previously an elder of Maniapoto had bestowed the name Hawaiikirangi. There is also official and validated Authority as The word made manifest, Christos, anointed one, since 1999, which has also been documented and recorded since 1992 to current. Barry Brailsford one of our great New Zealand authors released prophesy of the one to come who would hold up a stone at the temple of the 4 winds, he wrote she is the Leader of the Children of Light. In a glass case it waited 5 years for the hands that would lift it. In 1999 they arrived. The profile picture is of the stone (Petros Petra) named "Te Tapu Manawa nui" meaning The sacred big Heart (Manawa nui means Heart, brave, patient steadfast) yet it is the intent of nui to express in this case pure, Immaculate. Green stone is the stone of pure creation. It is the stone of peace, of The Gods, the fish, The stone of heaven and The Grail stone. Poutini is its guardian and is the first star of Orion's belt. It is held up at the gate of Tula on earth under the stars of Orion's belt, by Te Manawa (The heart) the person and first(An) in the sacred marriage as Poutini and Te Tapu Manawa nui in her hands join heaven to earth and earth to heaven. TeManawa as The word (Christos, anointed one) makes declaration standing in the circle of creation - Te means tree thus the true cross of Christ or the logos/word. Those with true hearts being the fertile soil shall find them. Debra also received "the foundation stone" in Maui 1996. Barry is of the Waitaha people, Te Manawa is Maori her (tribe) Iwi is Waikato whose waka is both on earth and in heaven being te waka o Tainui o te Ra. The waka bow is the Pleiades, Aldebaran is in the sail also known as The Golden Arrow and Orion's belt is the stern. TeManawa is The Heart of Heaven and the Heart of Earth. Kuia Taini Drummond explained the people are the heart beat. And thus TeManawa is announced to the world. All material is copyright Soul Directions 1992.
