I am Hine, I am Moana

Ki ruku hōhonu tēnei mahi toi Ko Hine au, Ko Moana au, ka ruku ki te ira wahine – tērā āhuatanga e kore e oti, he mea tapu ka rere tōtika i te ao tukupū ki roto rawa i ngā wāhine katoa ahakoa tana pakeke. He hononga ki te whānautanga mai, he hononga ki te matenga. Māna tātou e whāngai, e tiaki, ā, i ngā wā tika, māna tātou e whakamāhaki. Ka tuku mihi tēnei mahi toi – Ko Hine au, ko Moana au – ki ngā mahi a Hine hei kaiārahi i ngā wā hurihuri o te ao mārama, o te ao wairua, o te taiao, me te ahurea tangata hoki.
