Our Karakia

Kia Ora
We are the Waterloo Investigators Te Hunga Rangahau me ngā Puna Pūrākau. We would like to share this karakia. We say this karakia before we start working.

Karakia Timatanga
A Beginning Prayer

Tukua te wairua kia rere
ki ngā taumata
Hai ārahi i ā tātou mahi
Me tā tātou whai i ngā
tikanga a rātou ma
Kia mau kia ita
Kia kore ai e ngaro
Kia pupuri
Kia whakamaua
Kia tina! TINA! Hui e!
TAIKI E!

Allow one’s spirit to exercise
its potential
To guide us in our work as well
as in our pursuit of our
ancestral traditions
Take hold and preserve it
Ensure it is never lost
Hold fast.
Secure it.
Draw together! Affirm!
