Mai i Hawaiki rā anō ki Te Tauihu
Ō tatou tūpuna i heke mai ai, i hōrapa mai ai,
i puawai mai ai. He aha ai? Kia tika ai te kī
Tama tū ki Te Tauihu, Tama ora ki te ao.

From the distant Hawaiki to Te Tauihu
Our ancestors migrated, populated,
and prospered. For what purpose? To ensure that
Ngāti Tama thrive in Te Tauihu and flourish in the world.
