Tēnā koe

Ko Hēmi Pirihi taku ingoa nō ngā hapu katoa ō Whakatōhea
My name is Hemi, I am from all hapu of Whakatohea

Tōku pāpara ko Te Uanga Pirihi, Whakatōhea tūturu
My Father is Te Uanga Pirihi, originating from Whakatōhea

Ko au te kaikōrero mō tōku whānau. E tautoko ana mātou ki te kaupapa nei
I am the speaker of my whanau, and we support this kaupapa

Kua roa tātou e tohetohe ana i a tātou anō. Kua tae te wā kia ita te anga whakamua. Kia eke panuku ki runga
We have debated long enough, it is time to now look forward and be on board

Ka mutu, tīkina mai te pēke a te karauna kia manaakitia tōku rahi
In conclusion, lets settle with the Crown to benefit our people

Mauriora – Life of wellness
Hēmi Pirihi (Sonson)
