Nau mai, hoki mai and welcome back!
I'm posting the link to last night's documentary on Maori Television about my home town, Murupara. Myself, and one of my brothers were born there.
We whakapapa into Ngati Manawa and Ngati Whare
Dad was the local constable and we had the best childhood growing up. I always wished we'd stayed in Murupara, but dad had us move around with the job.
It's been sad to see the changes over the years, but last night I felt so proud of how the community spirit is stronger than ever.
I miss my hometown tonight.
Thanks for dropping
