Aotahi: School of Māori and Indigenous Studies

Kei ngā maunga, kei ngā moana, kei ngā awa, kei ngā mana e tau mai nei, tēnā koutou katoa! Tēnei te karanga o Te Whare o Aotahi ki a koutou, nau mai, haere mai, whakatau mai. Tēnei mātou e noho iho nei kei ngā pae a Māui e mihi atu nei ki a koutou. Puritia, poipoia te aho i tukuna mai e rātou, nāwai rā, ka tākiri mai nei tōna au, me ōna hua. Mā mātou o Te Whare o Aotahi koutou e akiaki, e wero anō hoki kia ekengia ngā taumata e wawatatia nei e tātou.

Greetings to the sacred mountains, rivers, seas and the prestigious settled here, welcome! Aotahi calls you all, welcome and greetings. We who reside in the different thresholds of Māui greet you. Grab a hold of and nourish the ancestral strands we have inherited, and in time, its way and its benefits will unfurl before us. Aotahi will encourage and challenge you all to achieve that which is desired.
