E karanga ana Te Pātī Kākāriki mo te waihangatanga o tētahi Manatū Hauora Māori

I tēnei tau i Waitangi, I whakahua ake te Tira o Te Mātāwaka o te Pātī Kākāriki i tā rātau aronga matua, ki te waihanga I tētahi Manatū Hauora Māori, mā Māori te kawe, mā Māori ngā whakahaere. Ko tā te tira; Kua rongohia ngā karanga a ngā Tangata Whenua, e hiahia ana ki tētahi Manatū me tōna anō motuhaketanga, hei āpiti atu me tika te hora o ngā rauemi.

Ko tā te kaikōrero mo te Hauora a Tākuta Elizabeth Kerekere. “Kua roa a Māori e tāria ana, kia manaakitia tika e te Manatū Hauora o naianei rangi, ahakoa he tūroro, he kaimahi rānei. Ko tā mātau he ūpoko pakarū kia hura he manatū hauora me tōna anō motuhaketanga mā Maori te kawe, e manaaki tika ai, ngā iwi, ngā hapū, ngā whānau anō hoki.

Kua kite mātau i te tere o ngā panonitanga e taea ai ki rō Pāremata, ko ngā panoni I te wā o te Mate Urutā ētahi. Nō reira e tika ana me mahia mo ngā Iwi me ngā hāpū anō hoki, mena he take taurite tō te pūnaha Hauora.

E karanga ana mātau mo tētahi Manatū Hauora Māori kī ana ki te nui o ngā rauemi. E mana ai te whakarauoratanga o te Tino Rangatiratanga ki te hauora o ngā tangata māori. Kua tae te wā e whai rangatiratanga a Māori ki te whakatau ki hea ngā pūtea o te puna pūtea tautoko haere ai. He kōrero ēnei nā ētahi kua roa e mātanga ana ki te mana taurite o te Hauora.

He pūkenga nui tō Te Ao Māori ki te manaaki, ki te poipoi, ki te whakatipu I te oranga me tētahi pūnaha Hauora mo ngā tangata whenua. E mau nei I a mātau te mana, me ngā mātauranga I ahu mai I ngā tipuna, ki te awhi I te whānau ahakoa e māuiui ā tinana nei, rānei e māuiui ā hinengaro ana.

Kua eke te wā me mārama, me whakamana ano hoki te Kāwanatanga ki te tūāpapa o ngā Tikanga Māori. Te Tino Rangatira me te manaakitanga I raro I te mana o Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Ka tika he take Tiriti te Hauora, koinei tā te Pātī Kākāriki, he whai kia whakaū I Te Tiriti ki tētahi Manatū Hauora Māori.
