Tribute to Tawai Te Rangi. Kai-ārahi, Tamariki Aorangi Tawai chose UCA Music as her vehicle for this vision, overseeing our Māori language productions, and co-creating Ngā Pihi 3 and Tama's Flute. As a native speaker of her beloved Māori language, her dream was to nurture the country's children in the ways of the ancestors. We remember her with much love as we recall her pānui ... "Ko Tawai Hauraki-Te Rangi toku ingoa i whānau ahau ki Ruatoria. Ko Ue-pohatu, whānau-a-Umu ariki, oku hapū o Ngati-Porou. Kei Porirua toku kainga noho. He Kai-awhina ahau o te Reo Māori mo Tamariki Aorangi. Ko taku noa; kia tika te whakatakoto, kia tika te whakahua o te taonga nei o te Reo Māori. Kia pūmau te Wairua i roto i ngā mahi katoa."
