He uri t?nei mai i ng? tai e papaki tu ana ki mauao, no te ia moana o te awanui, te ia-auraki o Tauranga ka rere i te ao ka rere i te po. Ko Ngaiterangi te iwi, ko ng? moutere whakaruruhau o Matakana ng? turangawaewae ?ku. Koira te p?take o t?ku t?ngaengae. Tauranga Moana Tauranga Tangata.
I descend from the tides that crash and break against my ancestral mountain named Mauao. I am of the great running currents of my sea fearing people, The Vein of our lives, Te Awanui. The islands of Matakana are where I plant my feet and call home. That is my very foundation from where I will always draw life. Tauranga’s sea, and Tauranga’s people are one.
