Nā mātou te hōnore i whakamanuwhiri ki ngā taonga ō Tauranga Moana
Koro Morehu addressing the room at our 2017 Kaumatua Hui
Te whenua i ngarue ai e te tōtara o wao tapu
i kūmea ai ki wī, i ūea ai ki wā, I tōu māhuritanga, i tōu kōhuretanga e tōku rākau
Ko te rākau i hinga mai nei, i hinga atu rā
Haere rā e Koro e i te ao tūroa
ki te kūwatawata o ngā mate e aue e hika e..

ka hoki mai ki Huria takoto ai mō ngā tae noa rā ki te rā nehu.
