Tena koutou e te whanau o Tapu Te Ranga Marae.
He mihi maioho tenei ki a koutou te hau kainga mo o koutou manaaki me aroha ki matou nga tauira nga whanau o GEOG 312, Race <Gender and Development me ENVI 505 Maori Environmental Resource Management kei Te Whare Wananga o Te Ika a Maui.
He mihi tino aroha ki a koutou, ki a tatou katoa.

This is the fourth year I have bought Victoria University classes to Tapu Te Ranga for a noho marae. As always it is the highlight of the course for many of the students and as the kaiako it is the best place to be talking about cross-cultural discourses, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, bi-culturalism, gender and kaupapa taiao. The pedagogy of teaching on the marae is tika for me and it is a blessing that year after year when I ring you Bruce to arrange holding these noho at Tapu Te Ragna marae you welcome me with a generosity of spirit and kindness in support of this kaupapa.

Many of the non-Maori students from my classes reflect back on their time at Tapu Te Ranga and talk about it as a profound expereince, an opening of learning and a place where they were able to sense a deeper understanding of the place of tangata whenua in Aotearoa. He miharo tena.

No reira e te rangatira a Bruce me to whanau hoki, he mihi aroha ki a koutou.
Mauri Ora

Kia Ora Bruce and Whanau - This is a little belated but I have only just discovered your website. I wanted to thank you all for the wonderful Harvest Festival. For my little family it was a day of feeling at home, relaxed, uplifted, soothed, and inspired. I particularly enjoyed the tour of the whare with a lovely woman whose name I have forgotten, but her presence matched the building and greatly enhanced my respect for what you have created together. Upaiko (sp?) the women's whare was my favourite. Anyhow - we came back a second day and would love to come back next year if you hold it again. I think the numbers of participants will only grow as people come to know what is being offered. Your grandsons who sung by the way were amazing. Arohahui, Jo

It was my luck that I tagged onto the back of a group of people who were being welcomed onto your Marae. It was my first visit to a Marae and my good luck that
you were having a special ceremony to welcome Sir Michael Fowler, The Sisters of Compassion and others. I found it very meaningful and emotional. I wasn’t the only
one wiping a tear.
The Tour of the buildings was also so profound; I’d like to do it again. I hope you have your Harvest Festival again next year. Your Marae is a very special, way-out-by-itself place to visit. Thankyou.

Tena koe Bruce
Thanks for all the work and inspiration you put into the Harvest Festival - and the marae and land over many years. It was an honour to stand among the tangata whenua and Support you.

Kia ora te whanau o Tapu Te Ranga

We had a supberb time at the Harvest Festival, it was the first time we had ever visited the Marae and were touched by the warmth, kindness and kaupapa. Its such a remarkable place that we felt so enriched for the experience. The mahi you have done over all these years for people would have saved the government many many millions. Forever may you thrive. Kia kaha. With love Terese (Taranaki Iwi) and Owen
