“E nga hau e wha e nga waka e nga karangaranga maha. Ko tenei te whakaaro a te Runanga O Nga Maata Waka. Kia uhia nga aroha me nga roimata ki runga ia ratou i hinga atu i nga mahi a Ruamoko. No reira, e nga mate o te ao haere atu ra. E hoki ki nga takahinga o nga tipuna kua ngaro.”
To the four winds and progeny. Te Runanga O Nga Maata Waka, have placed the cloak of love and tears upon those whose whanau that have lost their lives in the earthquake. Therefore to those who have passed return and follow the footsteps of your ancestors that have passed before you.
