Whanau

Whakataka te Hau

Whakataka te hau ki te uru,

Cease the winds from the West,

Whakataka te hau ki te tonga.

Cease the winds from the South.

Kia makinakina ki uta,

Let the breezes blow over the land,

Kia mataratara ki tai.

Let the breezes blow over the ocean.

E hi ake ana te atakura.

Let the red-tipped dawn come

He tio, he huka, he hauhunga.

With a sharpened air, a touch of frost, a promise of a glorious day.

Tihe Mauri Ora!
