UCTP Public Notice: The Passing of Maori Queen...

Taino’ti Guaitiao (Greetings relatives),

The United Confederation of Taino People (UCTP) pauses to offer its sincerest condolences to the Maori Nation of Aotearoa (New Zealand) on the passing of the great Maori Queen Dame Te Atairangikaahu.

Much like the traditional teachings of the Maori, our ancestral teachings affirm that that she will continue to watch over and guide you all from the home of your ancestors. Our thoughts are with you at this time.

Oma’bahari (With respect)
