He uri ahau nō Te Rarawa. Āe rā, Te Rarawa kai whare e.  Ko Ngāi Tūpoto me Ngāti Moroki ki aku hapū.   Ahakoa ētahi atu hononga ki Ngāpuhi me Ngāti Porou hoki.  Waihoki, ahakoa he tangata noho taone au, e noho pūmau ana toku ngākau, toku wairua ki te taha o Motukaraka.  Āe mārika, Hokianga taniwha rau.
