Kia ora e te iwi, Kiriana here with a waiata i composed many years ago! Enjoy!

E whai ake nei he paku waiata i titoa e au mo aku mokopuna. He waiata pepeha kia maumahara ratou ko wai ratou, a no hea hoki ratou


LYRICS


Hoki a wairuatia ki a Whangape

Tiro atu ra ki a Rangiputa

kite atu i te awa ataahua ko Te Awaroa

Ae marika, no Whangape

Te Rarawa Te Aupouri

Koina kee ko toku paapaa

Ngati Haua te hapu

Koina kee ko ooku maatua tipuna


May a spiritually return home to Whangape

my eyes set upon the great mountain of Rangiputa

i look out to my beautiful river Te Awaroa

Oh yeah! im from Whangape

Te Rarawa Te Aupouri

This is my paapaa

Ngati Haua my subtribe

These are my ancestors
