Ko Huatekerekere te maunga e rū nei taku ngākau.

Ko Rangitata te awa e mahea nei aku māharahara.

No Waitaha ahau.

Ko te Tiriti o Waitangi te waka e kawea mai nei ōku tūpuna.

He uri nō Kotirana, Tiamana, Ingarani, me Airana tēnei.

E mihi ana ki ngā tohu o nehe, o Tamaki-makau-rau e noho nei au.
