Paikea


By being born I broke the line back to the ancient ones. It wasn't anybody's fault --it just happened.


I wasn't scared to die.

In the old days the land felt a great emptiness… it was waiting waiting… waiting to be filled up…waiting for someone to love it… waiting for a leader.

My Koro wished in his heart that I'd never been born. But he changed his mind.

My name is Paikea Apirana, and I come from a long line of chiefs...

There was no gladness when I was born.

We can learn-- and if the knowledge is given to everyone-- then we can have lots of leaders, and soon everyone will be strong-- not just the ones that have been chosen-- because sometimes even if you're the leader and you need to be strong-- you can get tired…

Wise leader, forgive me. I am but a fledgling new to flight.
