Ko Tauwhiti Oranga he pakiwaituhi kōrerorero Skype i waenganui i ētahi tamatāne tokorua, ko Jörg, e 27 ngā tau, nō Münster i Tiamana, rāua ko Duncan, e 27 ngā tau, nō Pōneke i Aotearoa. I tō rāua ahunga ki te hauwhā o te oranga, ka whakatau a Jörg rāua ko Duncan kia huri rerekē. Ohorere kau noa tā rāua hoko tikiti rererangi ki tua o te ao hei whakaae kia whakawhiti oranga rāua ka noho tētahi i te ao oranga o tētahi mō te kotahi tau.

Kei ā rāua kōrerotanga ā-Skype ia marama, puta ai te āhua o ia whakaaturanga, tae atu ki ngā tika me ngā hē o tā rāua whakamātautau ahurea ā-iwi. Mā Jörg rāua ko Duncan e kitea atu ai ngā painga, ngā hōhā me ngā kūaretanga o te huhura i ngā tikanga a iwi kē. Ko ngā tikanga wehewehe rāpihi, “typisch Deutsche” hei wāwāhi ake i ngā kōrero mīharo, whakakata hoki, e hura ana i ngā tikanga a iwi kē.

E ai ki ngā kaihanga o te Whakawhiti Oranga, ko te kaiwaihanga Tiamana nei, kaiwhakaahua, kaihanga karetao hoki a Steffen Kreft rāua ko tana hoa rangatira, tana kaiako, tana kaituhi, tana kaikaretao hoki a William Connor e kaingākautia ana tā rāua kaupapa nei “te kanikani a te hū tianara me te hū tianara Birkenstock”. Ehara te Whakawhiti Oranga i te kaupapa huihui anake mō ngā tāngata Kiwi me ngā tāngata Tiamana me ō rāua hoa engari anō ia hei whakanui i ngā hihira o te ahurea iwi kē.

Hia mōhio? Whāia te kōrero Skype hou a Jörg rāua ko Duncan mō ā rāua mahi ki "Tiamana Koroua Pai" me "Aotearoa".
