This sturdy glass eco bottle features one of our own HAPA designs, which celebrates Te Reo Māori and our most precious resource, water, with the well known whakataukī:
KO AU TE AWA, KO TE AWA KO AU
I AM THE RIVER AND THE RIVER IS ME
This is an abbreviated version of:
E rere kau mai te Awa nui
Mai i te Kāhui Maunga ki Tangaroa
Ko au te Awa, ko te Awa ko au
The Great River flows
From the Mountains to the Sea
I am the River, and the River is me
This whakataukī speaks of the awa, the river, as an indivisible and living whole from the mountains to the sea, its tributaries and all its physical and spiritual elements. It speaks of the indivisible connection that we have as people, all people, to the life that comes from water.
(Speech excerpt Metiria Turei, June 2016)
A great gift for yourself, a friend, a colleague, or to send overseas.
This design is printed in a black ink and is only available from HAPA.
