Hutia te rito o te harakeke
Kei hea te kōmako e kō?
Kī mai ki ahau
He aha te mea nui o te ao?
Māku e kī atu
He tangata! He tangata! He tangata, hī!
If the shoot of the flax bush is pulled out
Where will the bellbird sing?
If you say to me
What is the greatest thing in the world?
I will say
It is people! It is people! It is people!
Whakawhetū is a national kaupapa Māori programme dedicated to Mokopuna Ora and reducing the rate of SUDI (Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy) for Māori. We provide policy advice, disseminate evidence-based information, resources as well as deliver training and education to the health sector and Māori communities. In addition, we also coordinate the annual Safe Sleep Day every December to support the work of DHB's and communities to reduce SUDI.
