Waitaha Air Gathering 2018

in Aotearoa New Zealand

2018 is a wonderful year of change. it is the year of Tawhirimatea, great Demi-god of the Weather and the human Mind. Our Elder Ancestors used this Demi-God to portray our Minds Eye when we were walking in Chaos, frustration, anger and all of the emotions that beset us in our daily lives. As well as personifying the various states of the weather, especially the huge storms that touch our Grandmother Earth 

The year is part of the cascading years that allow our Nation to deliver the fifty years reports every two years from each report into our Wananga, thus giving the learned men and women to take time out to write, read and comprehensively report on the various parts of human life that they studied.

The councilors reported on the cycle of the varying degrees of change that they have observed in their clients/patients, giving their communities a glimpse into the state and wellbeing of the community at large and the varying degrees of success that they encountered along the fifty year studies of the behavior of those that came to them for counselling.

The weather forecasters with some degree of theory set about constructing graphs and slideshows to enable the communities to view the 
cyclical storms, rains, snows, ice, frosts, and all other pertinent data that applied to the fifty years of Tawhirimatea Weather Cycles.

All these reports and calculations over many decades have shown that the cycles that we construct in theory are never anywhere close to the reality of the behavior of this rather indifferent Demi-God.

We are looking forward with great anticipation for the coming speakers' events, where we believe a great deal of learning and reviewing can be done all in the one sacred space, The Kohewhata Marae in Mangakahia Road, Kaikohe, Northland. 


Return of the Ancient Air Ceremonies

5th-14th October 2018 in North Island New Zealand

The elder teachers believed that the wind god was responsible for all the changes of the weather and the seasons. It was this Demi God that made all of the changes of the seasons and who exercised total control sometimes out of control weather patterns, although our elder teachers did notice that the long term visioning was indeed of a pattern that should be written into our future. 

This gave rise to many languages and many scholars trying to hold the information for millennia as opposed to short term for there were too many variables in the calculations. This was in relation to the human short lived species into this time.

Our teachers also noticed that the weather patterns indeed disturbed the minds of many and especially in the prevailing north west winds of the Canterbury plains which sometimes drove our people to very chaotic behavior and thus those who were affected by these winds were generally taken into the far north of Aotearoa to get away from the North West Winds.

With this being noticed over many thousands of years our people then accorded this Demi God with the powers of being able to disrupt the minds eye and many theories were propounded around these events.

Raymond TeKorako Ruka
Messenger of the Sacred Kowhai Teachings of Peace
Son of Waitaha

Raymond was born in 1951, in one of the Valley’s of Te Whatu Manawa o Hotu, a Range in Taitokerau, Aotearoa, New Zealand. This Range is commonly called the Brynderwyn Hills.

He was given two additional names: Kahu o nga Maunga Tapu o Te Taiao, by the Grandfather TeRauwhero meaning, The Hawk that watches over the sacred mountains of the Universe. The beloved Grandmother TeRangapu TeWera, named him, Uenuku mai Tawhiti, The 1st Rainbow. The Granny and Granpa who named him were two of the most significant teachers in his life.

He travels throughout the Continental United States speaking on Peace and the Matriarch, using as his guiding, teaching principles the wisdoms of his ancient matriarchal people, the Nation of Waitaha, the Water Carriers.

He has sat with renowned teachers from the four directions, but when the time comes, returns home to Aotearoa NZ, to sit in circle with his beloved, grumpy Granny’s.

Raymond had a catastrophic accident in 1985 and suffered severe injuries that he was not expected to survive.  The severity of the injuries resulted in paraplegia and he has said that the wheelchair has been his greatest teacher.

For the last 20 years, Raymond has been living in the United States of America with his wife Jenny.

Raymond’s talk is Titled, Tawhirimatea, and those storm winds of the mind, heart and spirit.
