Whakataukī

Tūī, tūī, tuituia tātou o Tāmaki

Whakarongo ake au ki te tangi a te manu nei a te ma tūī,
Tūī, tūī, tuituia!
Tuia i runga, tuia i raro, tuia i roto , tuia i waho,
Tuia i te here tangata, ka rongo te pō,
Ka rongo te ao pūtakataka, pūāwhiowhio,
Tuia ki te here tangata i takea mai i
Hawaiki nui, I Hawaiki roa, i Hawaiki pāmamao
I te hono i wairua...

Join us so we of Tāmaki can rejoice and unite

I listen to the call of this bird the tūī,
Calling, calling, let us be united!
Link us above, below, inside, outside,
Link us to our humanity, let the World of Night hear,
Let the World of day that spirals and whirls hear,
Link us to the human lineage origins of Great Hawaiki,
Long Hawaiki, distant Hawaiki
Where our souls rejoin...
