Which are Karakia? Carakia are prayer or incantation. Such as: greeting the daybreak and saying goodbye to the morning to make a safer trip, for different kinds of illnesses when you carve t? woko (tribal'tatoo'), when you carve white (meeting houses) or white (traditional canoe), and much more. Karakia, in her real nature, are songs of rituals that call for divine direction and shelter.
Monarch derives strength from the prayers of the Ivi
During a visit to a koukai in Waikato's Waikare Mariae, King Tuheitia's oldest child Te Ariki Tamaroa Whatumoana Paki brought a warm thank you to Kiingitanga-followers. After the renal surgery of the king M?ori and his mean sons Korotangi the surprising address was greeted by the believers in the Te Kauwhatamarae in the Hospital of Auckland.
This is a modest thank you letter from the King's own king's brother M?ori to his family. Many thanks to all who have come together in the last few month and have taken the opportunity to help and assist me. I have no words to describe how grateful I am to you all, but I thank you in extreme humility," said Te Ariki Tamaroa Whatumoana.
Whatumoana, the embassy of Te Ariki Tamaroa was welcomed by all the more than 300 people there. He was really good to see him taking on this role," said Te Ngau Ngau Tukiri, Te Ngau Young. Last year, the King's supporter M?ori met to provide the old-fashioned prayers in anticipation of the surgery that took place last Wednesday.
There was a particular prayers on Wednesday night at Te Puea morae in South Auckland. Once the procedure was complete, I knew immediately that I had the impression that the mornings came from our common strength, which we used in Karakia. So it was right to abandon my dad and my sibling and join those who had assembled that night in Te Puea for Karakia," Mr Paki said.
This is a tradition that Te Ariki Tamaroa wants to uphold. This Saturday the last of the year's annual rounds will take place in Reretewhio morae, Waiuku.
