Hangi celebrates kaumatua's legacy KATO'S MESSAGE Kia mau ki te pai Kia atawhai i te tangata Kia marae Kia mahi kai, hei waewae ma te atawhai Ka tupu koe hei tangata Hei tangata, hei tangata Hold fast to being good Be kind to people Be hospitable Prepare them food to give legs to kindness You will grow in the image and likeness of God Kia ora mai Kato Kauwhata Joining together: Planting kumara ready for a family day and hangi. Visit www.waiheke marketplace.co.nz to see the story of Koro Kato Kauwhata setting up the kumara beds at Waiheke High School. Community kumara growers are inviting all residents to join together for a family day and hangi on Sunday, July 3, at Piritahi Marae. The event is a day of Waewae Atawhai or giv- ing legs to kindness'' and will celebrate the legacy of former island kauma- tua Koro Kato Kauwhata who encouraged food growing and sharing. The event finishes the Matariki celebrations and commemorates the shared efforts of the rangatahi -- or youth -- the traditional kumara growers, and the Com- munity Supported Agri- culture Trust in growing and harvesting kumara during the 2011 season. The Join Together As One Family Day Hangi starts with a powhiri at 10am. During the day there will be a range of children's activities, music, entertainment, food stalls and an art auction. The public is encour- aged to participate by bringing musical instruments and sharing activities or donating art. The hangi, including a vegetarian option, will be served at 2pm on a koha basis. All proceeds from the day will help cover costs and contribute to grow- ing food next season. Eugene Behan-Kitto worked alongside Kato Kauwhata for many years learning how to grow kumara and other food to share with the community. It is his vision to work together across the whole community to grow food,'' he says. A poem by Kato Kauwhata and a picture of him working the first kumara seed beds in Rocky Bay will provide inspiration for the com- munity hangi. The poem contains the phrase Kia mahi kai, hei waewae ma te atawhai'' which means feeding the people gives legs to kindness''. Brian Griffiths from the Community Supp- orted Agriculture Trust says the theme of kind- ness is a recurring idea, remembering the late Don Chappell's kind- ness to the land'' concept of environmental care. It is so suitable that we all should gather together and enjoy a great family day to cele- brate how we all show kindness towards the land and towards each other,'' Mr Griffiths says. Food producers can book stalls for the event, and musicians and performers are encour- aged to join in on the family day and hangi. The event needs donations of meats and vegetables, foil, paper plates, a sound system, rubbish removal and lots of volunteers. Phone Mr Behan-Kitto on 372-9093 or Jennifer Fountain on 372-5805 for bookings, stalls or to offer donations for the family day and hangi.
