Repositories Of Röpü Tuku Iho: A Contribution To The Survival Of Māori As A People

In providing a Mäori version for the title of my address, the printed programme uses part of a whakataukï2 (a proverb) the whole of which is often expressed as follows:

Hokia ki ngä maunga, kia purea koe e ngä hau o Täwhirimatea.
