Parekura Horomia

Mai eeee te Maunga a Hikurangi,
Mai eeee te wai kaukau o nga Tipuna
Mai eeee Te Aitanga a Hauiti ko te reo pohiri o Parekura e ngunguru ana nei.
Aue! Aue! Aue! Te mamae te mamae.
Ko te niho a te Ao Pouri e kikini ana nei
Tihe, tihe, tihe mauri mate.

Parekura te whakaruruhau o te iwi Maori.
Te Poutokomanawa o nga Kaupoi
Te ahika o te Aitanga a Hauiti
Takoto, takoto mai i runga i tou atamira.

Ina mehe pitau whakareia
Ko koe tena – Aue Taukiri eee.
Ko te Kaunihera Maori o Aotearoa
E poroporaki nei

E hoki, E hoki
Ki ou Maunga kia pureatia
Koe e Tawhirimatea.

Our Team

Our History

  • NZ Māori Council's rich and unique history can be traced back to the Kotahitanga movement and the Māori parliaments in the 1800s.
