Taking our city whanau back to their culture, traditions, identity, past in Te Urewera

Jan 18, 2015 whanau went to Ruatahuna to learn pepeha (iwi identity), visit a maunga (mountain), swim in a awa(river)? doing just that, to reconnect with Te Urewera. Kereama Wright and Camera/Editor Norton Isaacs followed them on their journey of re-discovery.... Awesome

Now this would have to be the couch potatoes dream job, and you get to play all day long and get paid for playing games. They're not the ones you like to play but who cares if you get paid to play all day long. There is a catch, you'll lose a lot of sleep. There is a sign up fee because this job is not free.

Its just no good
but hey

 Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have."

Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you are going to do now and do it."

The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have done, would have done and so it never got done

"Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you're not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were."

Motivation gets you started. 
Habit is what keeps you going."

"The only goal you can't accomplish is the one that you don't go after!"

Continuous effort--not strength or intelligence--is the key to unlocking your potential."

To waken interest and kindle enthusiasm is the sure way to teach easily and successfully.

I exercise at work during my breaks for 7 minutes three days a week. Thats it, its not hard, the exercises are simple, no stress but it helps me stay fit in private and I feel great for it. I also stay in shape and get paid for it. Naku noa. H Orupe 
I earn a passive income using my phone, cell phone, fax internet, broadband wireless, landline, phone adapter and electricity. At the end of the month I get 10% back every time I pay my bill. Can you imagine telecom, voda phone doing that.... Nah

The Road to Whakarae

"The Road to Whakarae" an awesome whanau kaupapa recently put together by Filmmakers Tim Worrall and Aaron Smart. Part of a new Loading Docs initiative established by the New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air. It was a perfect opportunity to create a small project that celebrated the lighthearted a softer side of being Tūhoe, in contrast to the standard media representations of Tuhoe as being aggressive and isolationist.  A golden opportunity to upskill and train a Waimana film crew camera ready for any future project. (click the four arrows - full screen)
