    Stan At Tamapahore Marae

    Post by KrystaBel on Fri Feb 05, 2010 8:06 am

    These two vid clips off Utube are really AWSUM.. Stan saying a few words to the Whanau at Tamapahore Marae, and then he sings "Born Of Greatness" (He Kakano..), with his immediate family. This is Maori protocol when speaking on a Marae, u always end ur speech with a waiata/song (It is the icing on the cake.."the cake is ur speech..the song is ur icing" so to speak!!)lolz... Here are the links...enjoy!!

    Kia Ora Krystabel, thank you so much for the vids,though could not understand Stan in the 1st vid,but was happy to see him happy in the midst of his family and friends. Stan singing in Maori so cool, i love it, the guy in rh blue t shirt, hells bells he can sing too!!
    The most important part for me was seeing Stan with his dad and mum and the family,sorry guys i,m such a sook,its a bit emotional for me. Bless you Stan,i like who and what you represent, and also your culture and your people. Rock On brother

    Hey Krysta, thanks for the links! (I embedded them for you)

    Love the song the whole family sings. It's great to hear Stan singing in Maori. I don't understand the language but I think the song talks about "Born of Greatness" of Maori people and culture. You can perceive the importance of this tradition, always affascinating for me.


    The big guy with the blue T-shirt is Russ, Stan's older brother. Mikey is the eldest child.

    How awesome to see Stan in the context of his culture and his home Marae.
    The song they sing is the one shown on Idol in the video packages about him and his family.
    What a lovely humility he has in that he wants his "Idol" win to be for his whanau and not just for him.
    Kia Kaha Stan!

    Aaaah gosh. I watched this tens of times. Every replay I appreciate it more. It is truly a gorgeous moment. I feel blessed to be able to see this footage actually. Gotta thank MaoriGurl771 for u/l and sharing this videos with everyone else.

    Stan's voice is amazing!

    I also wonder why Russ doesn't do more with Stan, Linda. isn't he great? may be a singing career is not in his plans I guess? Mikey obviously is in the mind set of a musical career but we haven't heard him doing a solo yet. I know he can sing well.... would love to hear something from him.

    I totally agree with you there Simo.
    Russ has been a bit of a dark horse huh? He's so good!
    Maybe they'll do a collaboration for the new album?
    we can only hope!

    From the looks of it Simo, Ross can belt out a tune as well and we know April can. Wouldn't that be just so awesome??

    These are the words to this beautiful song.(waiata) sunny

    He Kakono Ahau

    He Kakano ahau,
    i ruia mai i Rangiatea

    And I could never be lost
    I am a seed
    Born of Greatness
    Descended from a line of chiefs

    He Kakano ahau
    Ki hea ra au e hitekiteki
    ana ka mau tonu i ahau
    oku tikanga
    Toku reo, toku oho oho
    Toku Reo
    Toku mapihi maurea
    Toku whakakai marihi

    My language is my strength
    An ornament of grace

    Ka tu ana ahau
    ka uhia au e
    oku tipuna

    My pride I will show
    That you may know
    Who I am!
    I am a warrior, a survivor

    He morehu ahau
    Ki hea ra au e hitekiteki
    ana ka mau tonu i ahau
    oku tikanga
    Toku re, toku oho oho
    Toku reo
    Toku mapihi maurea
    Toku whakakai marihi

    My language is my strength
    An ornament of Grace
    An ornament of Grace

    Kia mau ki to Maoritanga (Hold fast to your culture)

    Composer Hohepa Tamehana

    Had to share the words of this totally awesum song to give a better understanding of its meaning.

    For myself....find this song very spiritual, uplifting....feel the joy, honour, strength, grace of such a proud culture. wub

    Wow....more wows!!!

    Taichi thank you so much for the words! I was hoping someone would post them, you are a gem! I appreciate this sooo much!

    Such powerful lyrics, moved me so deeply. I am in awe atm. I've always been affascinated with Maori culture since I was a little girl. Now, since moving to OZ, knowing Stan and all you beatiful Maori people I would love to learn more about it. Thank you again to all for sharing your culture and traditions on this forum. I feel honored.
