He karanga awhina kua puta mo te tuna ōrea

Wepiha Te Kanawa

E tautoko ana Te Pāti Māori i te karanga a Te Kai-tiaki Taiao o te Kawanatanga kia kaha tiakina te tuna ōrea, kei rite ki te pokororo. E ai ki a Tākuta Pita Sharples, he anganga whakamua pai te rāhuitanga o te hī tuna mō te mahi moni.

Ka mutu, kua tau te mauri o ngā iwi o te motu kua kaha wero nei i te Kāwanatanga i ngā tau ki muri kia pai ake ai te tiaki i ngā roto, i ngā awa me ngā ara wai.
