Te Reo Māori, Mōteatea

Paraone Gloyne

Composer:   Paraone Gloyne


According to my female elders, a favourite past time of the patupaiarehe is to throw darts amongst each other as they travel to and fro between the mountains. It was a competition, they would cast their darts to see whose would fly the fastest. It’s their sport. Each mountain had one patupaiarehe who was the chief of all the fairy folk of a certain mountain, ridge top or forest. This poi was composed so that the stories about the patupaiarehe live amongst this generation. In traveling to each mountain and the different regions we acknowledge the Māori tribes of those mountains.
