1          Nau mai | 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.
