    Tau ki!!
    I am feeling the kaupapa mea nga kopu that you are speaking. Watching these video have further inspired me to seek after those who can help me learn my whakapapa so I to can have my ta moko done properly and carry my ancesters and whanau with me in what I do through this life.
    Kei te pai, kiaora.
