Recently one of<br />

our <strong>275</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

condtributors -<br />

Ernestina Bonsu Maro, made<br />

the decision to skydive to<br />

celebrate her 16th (*cough<br />

cough) birthday. This local<br />

daredevil diva, whom you all<br />

know represented the Cook<br />

Islands at last years Miss Pacific<br />

Pageant in Fiji, has become the<br />

epitome of “Living Life to the<br />

fullest”.<br />

One of the biggest barriers to<br />

being able to “Live My Life to<br />

its fullest” has been my weight.<br />

While I’ve learned to Be Happy<br />

with me, there is always that<br />

wondering thought (as I pull<br />

out my mirror so that I can see<br />

my toes) of how much more<br />

I could do in my life if I was in<br />

good shape and actively fit.<br />

Our community is no stranger<br />

to fitness programs. This worldwide<br />

healthy living trend is<br />

constantly in our faces thanks<br />

to social media. So, welcoming<br />

the Otara Health-Charitable<br />

Trust’s ACTIVE FUTURES<br />

program to Mangere was easypeasy<br />

thank you Sioeli.<br />

Cost of good healthy food<br />

is continuing to rise. For<br />

some of us, it’s already out of<br />

reach. Slap on the impending<br />

fuel tax and the everyday<br />

struggle will be real indeed.<br />

A ‘Fiddler’s tale of th<br />

Best friends Tia Ormsby and Mya Pritchard have a good reason to hang<br />

out together more often. Both girls, 11, are in the Manukau Performing Arts<br />

production of Fiddler on the Roof. Although this is not their first show together,<br />

what makes this one special is they will be playing the same character<br />

‘Bielke’, in an alternating child cast. They are happy because “we can share<br />

what we need to know” and “we can give eachother tips” they announce.<br />

Fiddler on the Roof, a musical with success on Broadway and West<br />

End, will be at Papatoetoe’s Spotlight Theatre donning 32 kiwi actors,<br />

directed by Regan Crummer. Set in Russia in 1905, the story is based<br />

on Tevye, father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family<br />

traditions amidst outside influences, which is relevant to many walks of<br />

life today. Mya reflects a message from the story “follow your heart; just<br />

because there are certain traditions, you can still decide your own future”.<br />

Bielke, Tevye’s youngest daughter is “cheeky, really enthusiastic and<br />

she looks up to her older sisters”, says Tia, something both girls can relate<br />

to and with the cast and crew supporting their experience by making it “fun<br />

and welcoming”. Both girls love their new theatre family, “everybody is pretty<br />

crazy just like us and they always have a smile on their face” says Mya.<br />

Manukau Performing Arts also brings together our deaf<br />

community, by collaborating with a dedicated team to provide<br />

interpretation to one show per season. This is a highlight<br />

for Tia and Mya as they have learnt some NZ sign language<br />

and have a greater understanding for their deaf friends.<br />

The musical is suitable for all the family, with tickets<br />

already sold to four generations. “It has some songs<br />

people won’t realise they already know” Tia points<br />

out, “and some pretty funny lines” Mya adds.<br />

enjoying our area<br />

Kia ora, talofa lava and warm greetings from all of us at the Local Board.<br />

With winter just around<br />

the corner, it can be a bit<br />

disheartening knowing the<br />

a bit damp and draughty. But<br />

here at the local board, we’re<br />

keen to do our bit to ensure<br />

your family can be healthy as<br />

well as having plenty to do<br />

to to bring people together.<br />

One such initiative is the<br />

Healthy Rentals scheme.<br />

Thanks to funding from<br />

the local board, this project<br />

provides support for tenants<br />

and landlords to create warmer,<br />

drier rentals. Successful<br />

applicants get free resources,<br />

advice and installations<br />

of LED bulbs, hot water<br />

cylinder wraps, thermostat<br />

controllers and curtains. To<br />

find out what you’re eligible<br />

for; search ‘healthy rentals’<br />

at aucklandcouncil.govt.<br />

nz for more information.<br />

Our local board area is also<br />

MABUHAY!<br />


Teenagers of the Southside so often bear the<br />

brunt of their own scrutiny. Merely living in South<br />

Auckland betokens “the struggle is real”. Albeit due<br />

to the magnified media portrayal of our people,<br />

my perception of being poor was extraordinarily<br />

incorrect – finding out for<br />

myself walking through<br />

the trails of litter, through<br />

formidable humidity, through<br />

little hands out reaching<br />

for my bag. I was walking<br />

through Tondo, one of the<br />

Philippines’ most notorious<br />

ghettos – that saw no way<br />

of escaping her poverty.<br />

In early December 2017,<br />

following thousands of<br />

dollars of fundraising, fruitful<br />

immersion into cultures<br />

other than our own and<br />

months of eager anticipation,<br />

myself along with 17 of my<br />

fellow Lasallian brothers<br />

boarded a flight from Hong<br />

Kong en route to Manila,<br />

Philippines. Our 3-day<br />

stop there would mark the<br />

beginning of a stupendous<br />

adventure I will remember<br />

for the rest of my life. We<br />

went to the Philippines<br />

with a readiness to give<br />

back to the people, and so we did that mahi.<br />

There we plastered & landscaped the makings of<br />

multiple homes, shared hours of bonding with<br />

kindergarten-aged children, their families and<br />

neighbourhoods, met face-to-face with convicted<br />

prisoners among many other outreach activities.<br />

Service, a term discussed to us at school for so many<br />

years and without scripture meant virtually nothing,<br />

even we went into the community to do such a thing<br />

– now had substance.<br />

It was the interaction,<br />

hype and prosperity<br />

that us teenagers of<br />

the Southside were<br />

now exposed to<br />

some 8,000km away<br />

from the “brown<br />

bubble” that is.<br />

I attribute my<br />

changed view on<br />

the South Auckland<br />

struggle to the everso<br />

merry heart of the<br />

Filipino. Mahal kita. If<br />

I learnt anything from<br />

who I met along the<br />

way of our outreach,<br />

it was to live.<br />

Hands around the land - Hei purupuru i te whenua<br />

Two years ago, in March 2016,<br />

the people of Tāmaki-makaurau<br />

showed their support for<br />

the people of Ihumātao in their<br />

struggle to protect their ancestral<br />

land from the /Fletcher Residential<br />

‘development”. Hundreds joined<br />

hands around the land.<br />

Fletcher Building is still sticking<br />

to its ill-conceived plans to<br />

build 480 housing units on<br />

the land at Ihumātao.<br />

Now it is time for the people<br />

to show Fletcher Residential,<br />

(and the Council, and the<br />

Government), that this beautiful<br />

landscape must be saved from<br />

destruction, and protected for<br />

future generations under the<br />

mana of its tāngata whenua.<br />

Support the people of Ihumātao<br />

and join Hands around the Land,<br />

<strong>2018</strong>. Hei pupuru i te whenua!<br />

Some of the many community<br />

leaders who have spoken up to save<br />

the land: Kaumatua Joe Hawke and<br />

Haare Williams, Māngere MP and<br />

Minister of Pasifika Affairs, Aupito<br />

William Si’o, Green MP Marama<br />

Davidson, City Councillors<br />

Cathy Casey, Mike Lee and Efiso<br />

Collins, as well as Lemauga<br />

Lydia Sosene, Māngere-Otāhuhu<br />

Local board and many more.<br />

Help heal the wound that was<br />

opened in 1863 when the land<br />

was confiscated, a wound<br />

was re-opened when Fletcher<br />

Residential bought the land in<br />

2016, ignoring the opposition<br />

of mana whenua, and the<br />

people of South Auckland. 5

“Gatorway Music”. If you have not heard of them, you need to get<br />

familiar. They are an underground rap group who all grew up in Mangere,<br />

with 8 members in the group (Cloud, Lanz, Kere Kenz,Teck2daDash,<br />

Dillz, Benge, Rico Reigns & Wings ) one could only describe<br />

them as a true product of their environment & music.<br />

I had seen a music video of their “Mangere<br />

Appreciation Song” floating around on Facebook and<br />

I instantly felt a connection. However, It was their fun<br />

g-funk style track ‘Gwalk” that got me bumping my head<br />

& grooving along, I thought they were dope, especially<br />

putting their own music out there independently.<br />

A couple of months later they popped back up while I was<br />

judging a song competition that was hosted by Flava radio station<br />

alongside Hayden Hare (Content Director of Flava radio ) and Ty<br />

(Smashproof). Though it was very difficult to decide, because there<br />

were so many great songs, there was this one track that stood out<br />

the most, Something genuine, intriguing in their voices and lyrics.<br />

Their subtle aggressiveness & pride describing<br />

upbringing and the urgency of breaking into the music<br />

industry, something i could relate too, Luckily the other judges<br />

agreed in the end this crew were named the winners.<br />

I also discovered they had a self-made music video clip to their “Emergency” song that was shot in a guerrilla<br />

film style, it had a raw grimy street feel to it that gave me such an appreciation for them as young Hip-hoppers.<br />

Gatorway music will be performing at Kiwi Spirit bar in Rotorua. Then on to building their record label<br />

as well as recording,staying as active on the music scene as they can. They can be found on Facebook,<br />

IG , SnapChat, Sound Cloud and YouTube. Support local artists making something out of nothing.<br />

Tararata Stream<br />


by Justine Skilling<br />

“The Tararata Streamwhere’s<br />

that?”, asked<br />

one of my born-andbred-in-Mangere<br />

colleagues, when I<br />

told her about my next<br />

<strong>275</strong> <strong>Times</strong> assignment.<br />

Streams are the hidden<br />

gems of our city<br />

neighbourhoods, channelling water from our<br />

streets out to the harbour and creating habitat<br />

for a multitude of plants, birds, fish, insects and<br />

people. They play a vital role in our ecosystem,<br />

but do we treat them with the respect and care<br />

they deserve and need? Do we even know they’re<br />

there? I decided to spend an afternoon with<br />

the Tararata Stream Team to find out more.<br />

Hidden behind houses between Bader Dr<br />

and Hall Ave in Mangere, the stream can be<br />

reached at Moyle Park, or at entrances off<br />

Elmdon St and at the end of Hinau Rd. I catch<br />

up with the Stream Team as they emerge<br />

through a gate in the fence of a neighbouring<br />

house. Armed with sampling nets, buckets and<br />

microscopes, the small team of dedicated locals<br />

are here to check the water quality and see what<br />

creatures they can spot in the stream today.<br />

Stream neighbours (Sarah, Helen, Beau,<br />

Cody and Catherine) and their dog are having<br />

fun, spotting inanga and eels in the stream and<br />

cooling off from the blazing sun. Several other<br />

neighbourhood children are hanging over their<br />

back fences and poking around near the water.<br />

Looking downstream towards Mangere Mountain,<br />

it feels as though we’re out in the countryside.<br />

The stream was a great resource for Maori,<br />

a source of freshwater and abundant fish”, says<br />

Julia. “It links us to the sea, with tidal water<br />

coming up as far as Hinau Rd. Fish and birds<br />

move between stream and harbour. Shortfin<br />

eels, to the delight of children, still come from<br />

the ocean - Moana Nui a Kiwa - in spring, and<br />

some live here for 50 years or so before leaving<br />

New Zealand forever to lay their eggs deep in<br />

the ocean. Little inanga come downstream to<br />

the tidal area in February and March to lay their<br />

eggs in the grass. Their babies will spend the<br />

winter in the Manukau Harbour, and come up<br />

our stream in spring as whitebait”, explains Julia.<br />

There’s still life in the stream, but it certainly<br />

needs some love. Local resident Tere Arere<br />

got involved last year, after receiving a letter<br />

inviting her to a planting session down at the<br />

stream. She’s concerned about the amount<br />

of rubbish being dumped in and around the stream and<br />

the potential for flooding that this creates. Long-time<br />

stream kaitiaki Maurice Sinclair is also concerned. He’s<br />

down at the stream most days, pulling supermarket<br />

trolleys of rubbish out of the stream and clearing away<br />

the waterweed that’s building up on the silty stream bed.<br />

Human actions can have a detrimental impact on<br />

stream life, but the Stream Team remains positive. They<br />

see the potential for the stream to be a place for the<br />

Their current<br />

projects include<br />

the installation of<br />

a fish refuge in the<br />

stream- a structure<br />

that will allow the<br />

fish to shelter from<br />

the strong flow<br />

of the current.<br />

They aim to bring<br />

life back into the<br />

stream and to<br />

encourage people<br />

to engage with it.<br />

“We want people<br />

to notice that the<br />

stream’s looking<br />

a bit sad and to<br />

ask “why?” and<br />

“what can we do?”, says Julia. She hopes that more of<br />

the stream neighbours will join in and enjoy the stream.<br />
