‘Kōrero Māori i nga waahi katoa i nga wa katoa. Ahakoa kei hea koe, ahakoa te whare, te whenua. Ko Ranginui e tu nei, Ko Papatuānuku e takoto nei. Ko Rangi, Ko Papa, Ko Au’.
‘Speak Māori all the time, anywhere no matter which house you enter or land you walk. Sky father above, Mother Earth below, I am a descendant of Rangi and Papa'.
