CAT RUKA

NGAPUHI / WAITAHA

He mihi tēnei ki a koutou kātoa

 

E mihi ana ki te rangi

E mihi ana ki te whenua

E mihi ana ki ngā maunga

me ngā wai hōrapa nei

kei te mihi, kei te mihi

Ko Puhanga Tohora te maunga

Ko Tāheke te awa

Ko Ngātokimatawhaorua te waka

Ko Nukutawhiti te tangata

Ko Mahuri te whare tupuna

Ko Ngāti Pākau te hapu

Ko Ngāpuhi me Waitaha ōku iwi

No Hokianga Ahau

Ko Cat Ruka tōku ingoa
