Welcome all things that have grown
Welcome all things that are good
May they be plentiful and abundant
Kaikōhau means to express your hopes and desires. When you say it, you are welcoming all things that are good and wishing for them to be plentiful in times to come. ‘Hua’ (fruits) references all things that are good. This can be the food laid out in front of you, it can be your mahi (work), health, whānau and friends, and many other things in your life that you hope to be fruitful and abundant.
This kaikōhau (courtesy of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori) is great to say during Matariki celebrations as you prepare for the new year ahead, but it is not limited to only this time. Say it at your kaitahi this Matariki and share your hopes for the Māori new year with your whānau, friends and whomever else you invite to the table.
