to help this younger generation
with the task

of listening to the
Maori language.

In the thudding of the poi
Oh Ngoi
in the men's stamping
Oh Ngoi
in the rhythm of our language.

Beautiful Ngoi

Dedicated Ngoi

E te Hokowhitu






E te Hokowhitu-a-Tu
Na Tuini Ngawai


E te Hokowhitu-a-Tu, kia kaha ra!
Kati ra te hingahinga ki raro ra,
Ma nga whakaaro kei runga rawa,
Hei arahi ki te ara e tika ai,
Whirinaki! Whirinaki! Tatou katoa,
Kia kotahi ra.

Nga marae e tu noa nei,
Nga maunga e tu noa nei,
Aue ra! E tama ma,
Te Mamae te pouri nui,
E patu nei I ahau, ina.

Ngarimu! Aue!
Anei to iwi e,
E tangi nei e!





Ye brave band of Tu, forever be strong!
Do not allow yourselves to fall before your enemy,
Focus all your thoughts on heaven above,
To guide you upon the straight and narrow way,
Let us trust and have faith in one another,
And unite.

Lonely stands our marae,
E’en the mighty mountains are bereft,
Ah! To you our loved sons,
Pain and sorrow lingers on,
Within each and all of us, alas!

Ngarimu, loved one!
Your tribe assembles here,

To lament your loss!
