General Information

Tērā te uira e hiko i Aorangi, te tohu o Pohokura, Kaitiaki o te iwi. Ki Rangitīkei e ripo atu rā, te pīkautanga o ngā awa ki a kiwa. Rere tika te haere ki te Riu o Puanga, kia mihihia ōku tīpuna whare. Ki Ōruamatua i Whitikaupeka o Ngāti Whiti, Tūwharetoa. Ka titiro tītaha ki Tumakaurangi o Ngāti Tama, Tūwharetoa. Te Taha o Pipiri e mokemoke mai rā, te karere ki te uru ko Rangituhia. Ko koia e ara e.

Tahuri kau ana ngā wai whiria o Rangitīkei ki te tonga, ki te pae tapu o Taumata-o-te-rā. Ko Manomano te whare whakaruruhau, e noho piri ana ki te maru o Ruahine. Ko te Heke Whirinui, ko te Heke Kariritahi, ko te Heke mai-i-raro. Ka tū, ka ora Ngati Raukawa-ki-te-Tonga, Ngāti Manomano e. Tōku tūpunā kuia, he Purutanga o te Mauri. He kakanō au i ruia mai i Rangiatea.

“Ko te kōrero kia haere ahau, ko tāku kia noho ahau. Koia ahau ka kī - Ka eke rawa aku toto mō tēnei poraka.”
Anei au te uri whakaheke o te kaupapa Whakatupuranga e mihi ana.

Hoki ake au ki tōku tūrangawaewae, ki Te Tairāwhiti.
Tū ake au ki runga i tōku maunga rongonui, arā, ēhara tōku maunga i te maunga nekeneke, he maunga tū tonu a maunga Hikurangi, kia pūrea e ngā hau o Tāwhirimātea.
Titiro whakararo ki ngā wairiporipo o tōku awa o Waiapu. Kite ai i ngā hoea o tōku hapū a Te Aitanga-ā-Hauiti e hoe ana i tōku waka o Horouta ki tōku marae o Puketawai.
Mā reira ka taea te kite i tōku iwi a Ngāti Porou e mahi ngāhau ana. Kātahi ka huri tōku aro ki ngā wai o tōku moana a Kaiaua e aki kau ana.
Tēnei he uri nō Te Urunga mai o te rā, Nō Porouāriki tangata, nō Porouāriki tipuna e mihi nei.
