Hutia te rito o te harakeke,
Kei hea te komako e kō,
Kī mai koe ki a ahau,
“He aha te mea nui o tea o?”
Māku e kī atu
“He tangata, he tangata, he tangata”

If you pluck out the new shoot at the centre of the flax bush, where will the bellbird feed?

You ask me what is the greatest thing in the world?

My reply to you is “it is people, it is people, it is people”
