New Zealand’s Prime Minister appeared on The Edge radio station to warble a Christmas ditty before he jets out with family for the holiday season. Topics of conversation were: What to get Will & Kate for their wedding present next year, a niece’s wedding in London and enjoying mohitos and corn-fed beef in Hawaii where The Keys plans to vacation this year.
Go here to see the flattest rendition of this song in any Kiwi pub’s history, but hey, 200% effort for leaping in and being a sport. What a hoot. Happy Holidays New Zealand. :)

“My cultural pride I will show, that you may know, who I am.”–song lyrics, Aaria.
Beautiful voices from The Shaky Isles today.
Mauri ‘Ola Tatou! Life to US!!!
[Footage: Singer Stan Walker & Whanau/Family from Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia]
Lyrics: He kakano ahau i ruia mai i rangi atea (I am a seed scattered from Rangiatea)
Life is a good beach — enjoy!
Aotearoa New Zealand beaches are one of the biggest perks you could ever see in the world, to vacation on, when visiting New Zealand. They’re transparently everyone’s property. Apparently.
Everyone in NZ feels a little entitled to own their fair share of sun-basting time on beautiful beaches like Onetangi all year round. Do you blame them? These beaches are a gift to all New Zealanders, at the moment. Tourists even more so. You just want to put the beaches of New Zealand in your own pocket and never do without them once you’ve discovered them.
My favorite thing to do at Onetangi is to swim and play chess with a friend, although the pawn pieces do get buried in the sand, if you’re negligent of them. So easy to do when drinking the superb Waiheke Island wines on offer. Or with ten guitars of locals playing around you at a beach BBQ too. If you’re lucky. Situated in the Hauraki Gulf, ‘the island is partially protected from the prevailing colder/wetter west and southwest winds, making it both drier and warmer than the Auckland isthmus.’ This makes it warmer and drier as the ocean moderates falling temperatures at night.
For educational purposes –here’s some waiata light (songlight) from Hollywood today–in Te Reo Rangatira, the Maori language.
Gorgeous poetic lyrics.
So uplifting – an ornament of grace for the spirit in a diverse world.

To love our enemies is where true love begins
Peace is like a harmonious river that always flows over the rocks and hate-hurled boulders of the human frailties and short-sighted misunderstandings of history’s wars–Horiwood 2010′s for World Peace
Two brothers of New Zealand ask one question in song. That question is very pertinent for all leaders of the civilized world today who claim to know what Peace is, when dishing out Peace Awards on a global stage.
How deep is your love?

~A singing birthday card for The Maori Rose of Sharon of Nga Puhi and Ngati Whatua Maori tribes, on her birthday, 2010. Posted by Horiwood.Com, Hollywood California USA. 11.28.10. Excuse distortion, Polynesian artists are still waiting on times to change, before we can truly rock it out in Hollywood in a culturally meaningful way. In the meantime, this is it! Enjoy.~
Today is my sister, Saloni Ruth‘s 43rd (US) Birthday. She’s a gem in her community as well as being a fine sportswoman. On this day, the front page of The Washington Post here in America, looks like this.
Gizmos & Gadgets for Christmas feature for retailers. Although diversity has never once gone out of fashion, Vogue leads the charge on Diversity is a feature story. War Medics focus on Trauma Transit efforts. Crystal meth in America is pinpointed to be stemming from Mexican Cartels. Oregon was a sight of a suspected bomb plot. Meanwhile many can’t afford housing costs in Washington D.C, the nation’s capitol.
What an interesting front cover today from The Post. There’s a lot going on.
Happy Birthday Sharon. From as far back as I can remember Sharon filled our home with ukelele music. She became an adept songwriter and entertainer playing the guitar–performing in front of audiences at a young age. She is national tennis champ title holder along with her sister Cherry as well as a netball champion, a cup winning athlete and a touch rugby football, team player extraordinaire. In high school she was a decorated beauty queen. She had a special bond with her playful grandfather Graham Edward. Most of all, her spirit has ruled justly and she has lifted the burden of the oppressed where her heart led her. Really, she is like the archetypal “All American girl” but she is proudly Maori and Kiwi. Today she lives in a New Zealand city, where whales are known to swim in schools sometimes in her surrounding shores.
Sharon: I love you on your special day we have always celebrated with joy as your family. You were born on The Island of Vava’u, Tonga where whales swim and play, 43 years ago today in a principality ruled by a Monarchy. Of her Island where Sharon and two of her sisters were born in the beautiful South Pacific, it is written:
“The Vavaíu Island group in the Kingdom of Tonga is a spectacular tropical island paradise in the Pacific Ocean. It has a year-round climate suitable for swimming, snorkeling, diving and sailing. Some islands are ringed by white sand beaches while others have tropical forests, sea-level caves, and dramatic limestone cliffs with breathtaking vistas.
“Remote and truly unspoiled, the waters around Vava’u are crystal clear with visibility exceeding 100 feet. Most of the islands are uninhabited, a few have villages, a few have very small unique resorts with exceptional food. There is abundant sea life with over 100 species of colorful tropical fish, giant clams, manta rays, sea turtles, spinner dolphins, and July-October the Humpback whales!
Truly a paradise with the only Polynesian Monarchy this is a truly remarkable place to explore.”
This year Tonga is having their very first democratic elections. It is a hallmark defining moment of democracy and liberty for the Kingdom of Tonga. In memory of Uncle Sam Sasser, The American footballer who used to visit you in Tonga as a baby, here’s an image of The Washington Red Skins, getting whopped by the Minnesota Vikings. :)
Howard Frendrich writes: LANDOVER, Md. — After scrambling 10 yards on his creaky legs for a key first down, Brett Favre popped up with one of his shoulder pads flapping around and started leaping on teammates for hugs. Moments later, the Minnesota Vikings’ 17-13 victory Sunday over the Washington Redskins complete, Favre went over to new coach Leslie Frazier and handed him the football.” Bret Favre is 41 years old, a grandfather– and still playing football.

There’s just something about Maori young people singing and performing live in the poetic language of Te Reo Rangatira (the Language of Chiefs) with beautiful smiles that reminds you, these young leaders are from a very vibrant culture.
Love them! Can’t get enough of their visage and unbridled talents on display in Hollywood. Beautiful.
Oh and if you’re reading this post from Hollywood–no this really is not “lost footage from the director’s cut of Dances with Wolves–young people really perform like this every day in places like Waitangi or Roto-Vegas/ Rotorua or many other beautiful cities too. One of my favorite spots in seeing Maori perform is at the Tuhoe tribe’s Te Hui Ahurei o Tūhoe Festval. These young people are the best and they speak the language as their first language each day.
They’re also cinematic. Their first movie is in development. It’s humorously titled: Hambones at the Pork Bone Puha Hotel. Now this is THE movie for any A-List Hollywood actor to do a cameo in. It’s going to be both funny & fab!
They’re so authentic and beautiful in performance. The kids of Ngai Tuhoe also are amazing artists and their artworks (paintings) are so special. Deep. Meaningful. I purchased one, last time I was in attendance at this event.
If you must have your fix, of seeing Maori appear and perform live, finding out more about these two cities, is a good start when planning your global travel entertainment.
Culturally vibrant travel–is always adventurous and enriching to one’s worldview. You know it. Cheers!
Maori young people also add a lot to America’s diverse tourism industry, especially in Hawaii, President Obama‘s home state–all year round. Go here to check these Maori kids, who help America out. They’re such good selfless young people. Amazing!!! I love them.

This is what a Kiwi team of champions looks like.
Pride of Aotearoa/ New Zealand = a pride of acrobats and action stars 2010′s.
Hot dance News/ Family News: Who? Prestige dance group is a group of Kiwi-Polynesian lads.
Hollywood Claim to fame: Jordan Samuel, aka Jay-V is my nephew and namesake. He also dances in this group.
Global Claim to Fame: 1st Place performance at World Supremacy Battlegrounds 2010, South-Pacific.
Skill: Polynesian robotic discipline fused with endless creativity. A new generation arises.
Dance Group Origins: Auckland – The Supercity, North Island, New Zealand.
Creativity: They are self-taught, self-choreographed. The ensemble shines–a Polynesian-Kiwi art form in effect. Community in unison is star.
Vibe: Off the chain.
What should happen: They all should be cast in a 3D action film. So talented. They’ve got mad skills. Put these guys in super hero costumes then film them in 3D. Wow! They’d be amazing. Think Dwayne Johnson x 11.

[Old footage - Kris Fa'afoi on National's support of Maori]
Exciting news from New Zealand – First time political campaigner Kris Fa’afoi of the Labour Party keeps the Mana Electorate seat, winning against the outstanding Hekia Parata (aka Lady Gardiner) in a snap bi-election, last night.
The Mana electorate is a part of Wellington (Wellywood) where The Hobbit films will be made. Kris Faafoi becomes the first ever Tokelauan Member of Parliament in New Zealand. Hekia Parata closed the gap for her party (National) by six thousand odd votes to that of just over a thousand. She did an outstanding job.
Clearly what New Zealand is indicating is that they value Polynesian leadership in the nation’s capitol. I like that.
Congratulations to both Kris Faafoi and the lovely Hekia Parata, a big star in Hollywood on this blog in recent weeks.
Both Kris and Hekia make any New Zealander proud to be a Kiwi. Well done to both candidates on victory. To read the full story, go here.
“Let’s party. We won,” said Kris as reported by The NZ Herald. ‘With those words Kris Fa’afoi launched himself into Parliament as the first New Zealand MP from Tokelau after winning the Mana byelection tonight, beating National candidate Hekia Parata by 46.4 per cent of the counted vote to 41.6 per cent.
The result was a 14 per cent swing to the National candidate since the 2008 general election.
Mr Faafoi, accompanied by wife Gina Fa’afoi-Rogers and 23-month-old son George, took the stage to rapturous applause, flanked by Labour leader Phil Goff and former MP for Mana Winnie Laban.’

Who: Te Aute Boys High School and Hukarere Maori Girls High School of New Zealand.
What: Performing a Waiata Tira (Traditional Song). Their performing arts genre is called kapa haka.
Why: To perpetuate their unique Indigenous Peoples worldview and language in a modern world.
Their language: Smiles and Te Reo Rangatira (The Language of Chiefs).
Star Draw: Their people have been doing this for centuries in beautiful Middle Earth, Aoteaora New Zealand.
Claim to Fame: Horiwood’s Aunt, “Aunty Waratah of Helensville” was the long-serving matron of Turakina Maori Girls College, a sister school of the Hukarere Girls school, featured here. This song in Hollywood goes up for her and what she believes is possible for all girls and children of Indigenous Peoples cultures in the world if they stay true to themselves and just express that in the world.
This is my Aunt’s life message as reflected in these kids singing. Some of her life’s work on display.
Aspiration: My Aunt is proudly of the Ngapuhi and Ngati Whaatua Maori tribes of New Zealand. Yet, she serves all other Maori tribal leaders childrens’ life’s purpose into the world equally.
She is not tribalist, she’s bigger than that. She’s a global thinker. I love my Aunt a lot for her largeness of heart and purity of spirit. An example for all Maori and Polynesian and Kiwi politicians to emulate perhaps as a take (cultural challenge of leadership) from Hollywood today.
In its purest sense (dating back over a century from NZ), my Aunt’s actions prove she believes in true equality, just like her ancestors believed and taught her. So do I. Hence going to the trouble of creating and sharing this post from The Entertainment Capitol of The World.
Political Point: May we always have the foresight, heart and wisdom to include indigenous peoples at the forefront of everything we do. Their worldviews are diverse and amazing. They look after landscape, people, the human spirit and have a message of preservation always for future generations.
What’s best about these kids: If you talk to any of them, they are all very funny. They have the best sense of humor. Funny kids, naturally.
Personally I like their message a lot. Wisdom as gifts for the world is contained in these young peoples’ culture and thinking. We need it. LOUDER!

Astaria Tigerlily Te Aukura is a sweetheart from New Zealand whose been shortlisted as New Zealand’s next Milkybar Kid. She is 7 years-old.
If successful, the gorgeous Astaria will feature in a TV commercial for Nestle chocolate company’s new campaign that features a child cowgirl or cowboy, in the lead–showing kids having fun growing up in New Zealand.
The old TVC follows with a clip from Hollywood-Kiwi film director Geoff Murphy‘s film Utu (Young Guns II) that depicts the New Zealand landscape as a Western.
Fun times ahead for Kiwi kids in the future of this great film making nation. Good luck Astaria on your audition. The winner is announced November 19th 2010. What a beautiful smile Astaria Te Aukura has.
Astaria is of Auckland The Supercity. Her audition follows along with Astaria performing the Rarotonga hula of the Cook Islands in New Zealand with her friend Lauren Lietz at Mairangi Bay. Too cute.
Because New Zealand, where Astaria is growing up, is like living in a big Western (great outdoors in rural regions) fused with Cosmopolitan City living, here’s an image of Hollywood-Kiwi film director, Geoff Murphy‘s (Young Guns II) cinematography from the movie Utu. Murphy’s last film features the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe.

Today was the biggest growth day on the blog in two months.
Thanks for the mad love everyone. Together, we’re making history.
God bless you all. Thank you.
Let’s rock this, together!
What I have learned at this point blogging, is that Maori-Kiwis really can live away from whanau (family) iwi (tribe) in the US full time, for 4 and a half years now.
I’ve learned that I love America, more than most people claim they do.
This is a great nation, diverse and beautiful and I feel very privileged and blessed to have been a small part of it, during some very interesting years. As most of you who read the blog are American, “thank you,” have faith in yourself, as many of us (your friends who are non-American) do. We believe in you!
No matter what the day may serve up, may a growing bond never change between you and your allied nations of friends. When you’re down, it us who, within reason, hold your arms up in shared victory. That’s what real friends are for. Kiwis (New Zealanders) are such real people. We don’t quit good people. The victory is not always monetary. A change for you all perhaps in these not always smooth, political years and growing pains. Instead, the victory we share together is a shared world for future generations, beyond temporary moments of instant gratification known as ‘our lifetime.’
On that note, here’s a group of lads, all of whom are perhaps much more noble than me –yet not one has my profile, even though they all should– whose ancestors all raised them to think of their grandchildren’s grandchildren. Here’s some more Maori entertainment from the priceless lads of K2 Maori Company.
Blogging in H-Wood, most days I feel like one of these bros. Not much different to any one them. I believe that not enough Maori men are seen or visible at high profile levels of leadership in the world. Yet the world needs what Maori men know culturally, at this point in world history. Especially in America, hence a motivating reason of why I blog.
Incidentally, most Kiwi kids grew up singing this song. I was about ten? I think, when I first learned it with my siblings, next door neighbors and friends. I still know all the words off by heart. When I was in Hawaii I heard some Hawaiian bros singing this hori jingle too, so it’s a bit of a global hit, worth sharing. Americans… you’re quite surprising people, to know this song. Thank you all for being a part of our diverse view, that includes Maori presence (taste preferences and observations) daily too in Hollywood and America. Mauri ‘Ola - life to you!
Golden couple of the day: Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

“After the flood, all the colors came out”–U2
Pictures: Sunlight through palms and trees, my street and Santa Monica Blvd and Fairfax, West Hollywood California, today.
Video: U2 playing their much loved 360 degrees concert at The Rose Bowl, Pasadena, California.
Message: People would much rather trust a proven rock star then a politician today. They’re more fun – and you get from them, what they promised when you bought into what they said they were offering. Unfortunately the same thing can’t be said of some nations politicians today. Thank goodness for both good politicians and fine rock stars. There’s hope rising in the world. :)
You’re welcome. And there are four Australia dates too for U2 performing live in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Too much rock concert happiness and fun down under. :)

America hasn’t been forthcoming in providing high profile Asian-American faces in Hollywood texts of entertainment. Why? Who knows.
When needing to broker new markets with either India or China to grow the American economy any Asian faces are worthwhile promoting to show cultural match with these two nations.
Here’s a study of Dan Choi – one of the few Asian-American faces actually allowed to be promoted within America. I’m writing this from Hollywood the weekend that California was successful in brokering a film making partnership with the Indian film industry this week. So at least some gains are being made for America and the economy this week.
If we’re talking about growing Hollywood’s film industry, perhaps Asian action films, as in Bruce Lee proven cross-over film markets appeal, being updated in 3D, are what Hollywood should be seeking to do–to grow the California film industry. Perhaps.
If I was the Governor of California (eg: newly elected Jerry Brown) I would hold meetings with Spielberg and Ang Lee types too and the likes, to suggest California partners with China to remake Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon in 3D, or a movie similar.
As America is too slow, I guess New Zealand filmmakers will have to get on this one instead, to grow the Chinese-Kiwi film industry down under. Actors of the calibre of Yun-Fat Chow and Ziyi Zhang would be very welcome in New Zealand to make their films, I reckon.
Good films with Asian leads should be normal in the world. Asian faces should be seen a lot more than they are in the West. These are my thoughts anyway,blogging today from a humble apartment in Hollywood. Let’s go through bamboo forest in 3D New Zealand–why not?!
With ‘Hollywood Maori King’ Cliff Curtis (a proponent of Mau Rākau traditional Maori martial arts) demonstrating that Maori-Kiwi actors can hold their own in Asian-friendly themed martial arts action films in 3D, there is little risk in this strategy. The film Cliff Curtis last appeared in, The Last Airbender grossed: US$ 121,601,062 domestically within the US and $186,901,861 outside of the US. Or total gross: $318,902,923. Or over one third of New Zealand’s entire Tourism earnings in any given year. Not bad. Which incidentally, is also why Cliff Curtis is still New Zealand’s leading Hollywood Maori King. That’s some box office clout, right there in the future direction of New Zealand cinema in 3D featuring Asians and Asian-American actors and Maori / Kiwi actors too in the leads.
