1          Welcome

 

The meeting was opened with a karakia.      

 

Whakataka te hau ki te uru

Whakataka te hau ki te tonga

Kia mākinakina ki uta 

Kia mātaratara ki tai         

E hī ake ana te atakura   

He tio 

He huka 

He hau hū  

Tīhei mauri ora

Cease o winds from the west

Cease o winds from the south

Bring calm breezes over the land

Bring calm breezes over the sea

And let the red-tipped dawn come

With a touch of frost

A sharpened air

And promise of a glorious day.

Unuhia, unuhia

Unuhia mai te urutapu nui

Kia wātea, kia māmā,

te ngākau te tinana, te hinengaro

i te ara takatū

Koia rā e Rongo

e whakairia ake ki runga

Kia tina! Haumi e!

Hui e! Tāiki e!

Draw on, draw on

Draw on the supreme sacredness

To clear and to set free

the heart, the body and the inner essence

In preparation for our pathways

Let peace and humility

Manifest this! Realise this!

Bind together! Affirm!
