wāku Play

1. (particle) (determiner) my (plural) - variation of āku.

Me pēhea te whakapūoro ake i ō rātau reo kia rongo ai ngā taringa o ngā uri whakatipu? Ko wēnei wāku pātai mō ngā taonga pūoro i te wā tuatahi i kite au i te Whare Taonga o Tāmaki Makaurau, i te tau 1970 (TWK 41:2). / How should they be played so that their voices can be heard by future generations? These were my questions about the musical instruments when I first saw them in Auckland Museum in 1970.
(Te Kākano Textbook (Ed. 2): 52-56, 108-110;)
