Arohatia Te Reo - We are learning a Waiata Maori with our buddies.


Audio recording >>


Te Waiata o Hau
 Aue Aue Aue Aue               Oh Oh Oh Oh
 Ko Hau tenei, he tane toa     This is Hau, he is a brave man
 Whakaingoatia ia etahi awa  He named some rivers
 I nga hau - e wha                  Across lands far and wide
 I te - tahi ra                           One day
 kakiteia tetahi mea Whakami - haro    he saw an amazing thing  
Ka tu tona                              his heart stood still
 Ma - nawa -a
Chorus
 E haere ana a Hau e            Hau is going
 E haere ana a Hau e            Hau is going
 E haere ana a Hau e            Hau is going
 Ki nga whenua o Aotearoa   to the lands of New Zealand
 Haka
He aha tenei        What is this?
 He awa nui         A big river
 He awa roa         A long river
 He awa mana      A strong river
 Manawatu Manawatu
 Chorus
