Kāwei Ika Moana - Lineage of Tangaroa.
We are Waitaha the water carriers, the water seekers, the children of Tangaroa Matua (Grandfather of the water forms of the universe), travelling through time on the long plane of peace, Rongo Marae Roa. The universe sings in Kapokapowai (Dragonflies) wings and we cultivate our gardens of peace with this rhythm.
“Nga Wai tera e nga roimata whakatere aroha o Ranginui matua mō tona tahu. - The waters those are the tears of continuous love of Ranginui matua for his beloved.”*
