Te matakeinga o Makea Nui

Friday July 27, 2018 Published in Letters to the Editor

Aka umuumuanga o toku Tupuna

Makea Nui e e, Makea Nui e e

Mutekianga roa, mutekianga roa

Tupu i konei au ivi maori e uiui nei

Mei te au tiao rangi teitei e te ka-ka

Kua ngaki, porokiroki mai a Ruaunga

Akauruuru, akamarokura ki rungao i toou koutu

Tapu vaevae akairo no Teaingariki

Teaingarangi tukuranga tinamou te pito ko Puoromea

Tauranga mou, akaki ia kite mekameka

Raro ake ite au etu, turama te marama

Makea Nui e e, Makea Nui e e

Mutekianga roa, mutekianga roa

Akateni ki te Ao rangi, Tateni nate Moana Nui O Kiva

Pe’e na roto i toou paepae Tapu Nui

E imene te aroa kite matakeinanga

E Reo Purua no Te Atukura Paepaepoto Marae

Makea Nui e e, Makea Nui e e

Mutekianga roa, mutekianga roa

Avaiki Nui Tumanava e kapiki nei

E Purua na Tutemaeva Taua Rekareka Rangatira
