Kia ora matua Bruce. It was inspiring to do our planning and dreaming for action on climate change in a place that was built from your dreams. Everyone was very uplifted through being there. We'll be back again soon, thanks, Arohanui

Kia ora Matua, we just finished watching your whare on Maori tv and listening to the its conception and birth. It was very refreshing and exciting to see and hear the life story of Tapu Te Ranga. Ma te wa Matua

Kia ora te whanau o Tapu te Ranga Marae. Many thanks for the warm and wonderful stay. Our music and art students from Bay of Plenty Polytech had an amazing experience at the marae. Their hearts and minds were opened to look at the world in a more holistic way. One of the things that stuck with me was to "have a dream" then work hard towards it. The marae has the hard work and dreams of so many people imbued within it - it is truly a special place of the people. Kia ora

Tapu te ranga reminds me of the importance of having a dream, and working to achieve the dream. What a fantastic place. Thank you for your hospitality.

Kia ora Matua Bruce me to whanau mo to koutou manaakitanga ki a matou. Thank you so much for hosting us at your whare. Our Equipt Youth Development have enjoyed our stays (4 to date) and are always excited by the experiences before, during and after our noho. 2 highlights for us have been 1)having freedom to learn & practice tikanga & kawa maori & 2)preparing hangi for our greater whanau to feast on.Thank you again for making it possible to celebrate Maoritanga in an urban setting and a beautiful environment. Gods peace rest upon you and your whanau

Tēnā tātou Matua,



He mihi kau atu tenei ki a koe ki a koutou ngā ringa raupa o Tapu Te Ranga Marae mo o koutou manaakitanga I te wa ka noho mātou Te Rau Tipu ki to koutou taha. He wa miharo kit e noho whakakōtahi. I whakapiri ai mātou hoki ki ā rātou etahi atu manuhiri no te kohanga, no te whareherehere. Ka rawe te kai o te whare, te whakaaro mai rātou ki a mātou me I noho mātou te iwi noa I te kotahitanga ō rātou ma.



No reira he mihi



Kiaora Papa Bruce,



Hope this email finds you and your whānau well. Our time with you all was all too short and yet we came away having sat amongst the people of which all the generations were present in our day through meeting at the table talking over kai. I loved it.



Our rangatahi presented their kaupapa in the whare kai at lunch time and initiated a reciprocal response from the roopu from the whareherehere. We were both fed as a result and the rangatahi were overwhelmed as the tikanga of our old people was demonstrated in kind to them for their contribution to all as a whole.



I wanted to tell you that because I remember your korero. That we as a people have to learn to live together again. That day we as a roopu got to taste that again and I want to thank you.



To note Papa. I have moved roles and although I am sure we will meet again Te Pātaka Uara is now being administrated by Amon Heremia. You’ll love him when the time comes for Te Rau Tipu to move onto the marae again. I will process the invoice and I have cc’d Amon in so that he’s in the loop.



Lovely to hear from you Papa

Melani
