General Information

Tau ana ki te pae o Ruapehu maunga
Ka tiehua te wai ko Whangaehu
Hoea rā te waka o Kurahaupō
ka ū ki uta ki te hapū o Ngāti Hikapīrau.

Haere whakateuru ki te maunga titōhea a Taranaki
tiro whakararo ki ngā wai riporipo o Waiongona
ki te waka o Tokomaru.
Tau atu rā ki te hapū o Puketapu.

Ka peka atu ki roto o te rohe pōtae
ki ngā pukepuke o Pureora maunga
ki ngā wai tukukiri o Waimiha
ki te tūpuna rā ko Rereahu hapū

Nei rā a Ngāti Apa, a Te Āti Awa, a Ngāti Maniapoto e mihi nei.

He iti Kopara, Kahikatea, ka taea!
Tū ana ki tōku maunga ko Rangiahua. Tirotiro whakawaho ki Te Moana-nui-ā-Toi. I reira tōku tūpuna ko Tōrere-nui-ā-Rua i whakarere i tōku waka ko Tainui. Nā konā ia i rere ki ngā wai o tōku awa a Wainui. I reira moea a Manaakiao. Ka puta ko tōku iwi, ko Ngaitai!
Te wiwi nati o Porourangi. He iwi moke nō Waiapu, nō Whanga-o-Kena, nō Hikurangi.
He wiwi, he nati, he whanoke!

General Information

Ehara tāku maunga i te maunga nekeneke engari he maunga tū tonu mai onamata. Ko tōna mana tuku iho nō tuawhakarere. Ko te ahikā roa nā Uepohatu, nā Te Aitanga a Mate, nā Te Umuariki.
Kei raro i te koroua a Hikurangi ko te puke maunga ko Manutahi. Ko te kōawa o Mangahānea e māturuturu ana i muri i te marae o Mangahānea. E rere āku mihi ki taku whare tipuna kōka ko Hinetāpora. “Ahakoa tōna kōtahi he manomano kei muri i a ia”.
Ka huri au ki ngā pari toka o Tawhiti-nui-a-Paoa whakawhiti atu ki ngā tai e papaki i te raenga o Mataahu. Koia ko te kāpata kai o Waipiro ākau, te tai i whāngai i ngā uri o Te Whānau-ā-Iritekura. Nā te tipuna nā Tuwhakairiora a Iritekura i tono
“Haramai ki Waipiro. Ina ngā pungarehu a ō tungane”

Nei rā tēnei Wīwī Nāti o te urunga o te rā rā e mihi ana
