Kia hora te marino, Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana, kia tere te Kārohirohi i mua i tōu huarahi. May the calm be widespread, May the ocean glisten as greenstone, May the shimmer of light ever dance across your pathway.
Kia Kaha - Māori phrase used by both the Māori and Pākehā (European) people of New Zealand. Used as an affirmation
"What is the most important thing? It is people, it is people, it is people" - Maori Proverb.
