“Dr George Habib – New Zealand Maori Council Executive 2012; Waiariki DMC delegate 2012”

E Hori, te tohunga o Tangaroa, te Rata o te kai moana, te whakaruruhau o nga uri a Tangaroa. Kua oti o hau mahi whakahirahira. Nau e pakanga te takutatanga a te Pakeha.
Kia whiwhi te Ao Maori ki ona taonga mai te wahanga tuarua o te Tiriti o Waitangi.
Hoki atu ki a Matiu Rata, kia kotahi Mahuta koutou e mahi tahi ki te kokiri ki tono a te Kaunihera Maori mo nga ika o te iwi Maori.
E kore a warewaretia te kimokimo o o karu, te minakata o to reo, te marama pai o o kupu.
E hoki, e hoki ki o Maunga kia pureatia e koe e Tawhirimatea.
