KARAKIA MŌ TE TĪMATAKA – STARTING PRAYER

Tukua taku wairua kia rere ki kā taumata
Let my spirit ascend to the top most summits
Hai ārahi i āku mahi
As a guide for all that I do
Me taku whai i mātauraka / te reo / toi Māori
And in my aspirations for Māori wisdom / language / arts
Kia mau, kia ita
So that it can be retained forever more
Kia kore ai e karo
Never to be lost
Kia pūpuri
So that it is preserved
Kia whakamaua
And maintained
Kia tina!
TINA!
Haumi e!
Hui e!
TAIKI E!
So that it is secure
