Motivational Interviewing and Puurakau with Youth, Emerging Adults and Adults:
Paddling and Flying to New Horizons
Kia Ngātahi te waihoe
Ka huri te kei o te waka Whatiwhati ngaru
Haere ki tua, papapounamu te moana E topa, e rere ki te paerangi
Paddle as one
Turn the bow of the canoe
Cut through the waves
Go beyond to where the waters are flat, that you may fly to the horizon
