Ki ngā karangatanga maha o te ao, whakarongo ki nga ngaru e papaki mai ana ki uta
Haere ngā mate haere
Whati pai ana te kanohi ora
Ngā iwi, ngā hapū haere tōtika te haere
Kaua e kotiti atu i te huarahi kua para nei mōu
Kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui
Tihei mauri ora
To the many identities nationwide behold the waves crashing on the shore
Remember those who have departed
Whilst those of us who remain (alive) continue unabated
Each tribe and sub tribe be strong in your resolve to forge a pathway ahead
Do not stray from the direction you have set
Be strong, be resolute, be determined
We are launching a new and improved project website! Please bear with us as we update all of our pages. The new site should be complete by the end of this month!
Te Tiaki Mahinga Kai is a national network of tangata kaitiaki/tiaki, kaumātua, environmental mangers, and researchers formed to improve management of mātaitai, taiāpure, and Temporary Closures throughout Aotearoa. These are special areas and devices (Area Management Tools) set aside to sustain customary fishing.
Anyone is welcome to receive and contribute to Kai Kōrero, the magazine of the Te Tiaki Mahinga Kai network. The first edition was printed in December 2007.
