" Kei te Atua to tatou piringa."
I TE orokoekengamai o te Pakeha ki enei motu, e meinga ana, kotahi rau mano tangata Maori e noho ana; taheke tonu mai te punatangata i reira, moroki noa nei. Te hokinga iho, i roto i nga tau ka wha te kau, hula ka hula nga tangata Maori e noho nei i naianei, e wha te kau ma wha mano. Ka tae te hokinga kino-tanga o te puna tangata ! Mai rata, he iwi uekaha he iwi hue nui, ki ta te kanohi tirohanga atu.
He aha ra te take i kore ai e pipi mai i Hawaiki te puna tangata ? He timu atu te hanga, timu atu, timu atu. I te mea e pakanga ana nga iwi, e huaki ana, e hinge ana i te parekura, e horo ana he pa, i ata matauria nga take i matemate ai nga iwi Mairi; tena ko tenei, he whenua rangatira te hanga, to ana te merino puta noa i te motu. Na, ka uia ano e tamara, e te tangata whenua, Heaha ra te take i timu tonu ai te tai o te taha Maori ? Tu ana nga where, takoto ana te papa oneone, rapurapu kau ki nga tangata, kei whea ra nei ? E hara i te kai kore nana i pana; ehara i te awha o te rangi nana i pane, inahohi, he paki ano te paki o te rangi, he tahua kai ano te tahua kai, heoti, kahore e paringia mai te tai tangata Maori. Kei te mohio te ao, ehara tenei i te ra e tutungarahu ai, e rapaki ai te [...] me te kotiate ki te ringa, engari ko te ra o te ngehengehe o te rangimarie.
Tena, whakamahara marie ki nga take e iti haere nei koe, e te tangata Maori; e hauwarea nei koe; e mane kore nei; e hekehaere nei to tupu. E hire ana nga putake i hinge ai te he ki te taha Maori, i taia ai koe e kino raua ko mate; ko te putake nui ia o te he pepehe i a koe, ko te waipiro. Ko taku kupu nui tenei ki a koe, i tenei name o TE KORIMAKO. Ko nga wai whakahaurangi katoa te take i eke ai te he ki tena taha, a, haua noatia iho te hunga e inu ana i tera hanga. Na te waipiro i whawhao atu, whawhao atu te Pakeha ki nga whareherehe, mano atu, mano atu. Wahi ai nga tupapaku o te waipiro, he ope ano ki nga whareturoro, he ope ano ki nga whare-heahea, he ope ano ki nga-whare-rawakore; he ope ki te karore haere, kaore he tow kai ma te poho; he ope ano ki te whenako; he ope ano ki te kohuru. Na te waipiro ka taungangau te Pakeha ki a ia ano. Ka kitea te ririhau i taua hanga, te taukumekame, te takaokeoke; te whakatioro i nga taringa i te pararetanga. Na taua ngongi i totoia-poakatia ai te Pakeha e ia ano. Na ana tu wai i mekemeke ai te Pakeha, i kitea ai ki nga takatakanga o te mano, nga uri a Whiro, a Ringaroa, a Pinene, a Tupuheke.
Me he mea, na te waipiro i whakawhiwhi ki te Pakeha te tini o nga mate i runga i tana mohio, i ana ture arai i te he, me aha ra koe e te iwi Maori e kuare nei, e ture kore nei i ou kainga, i ou pa? Hurihuri marire koa e te whanau, me aha ra koe ? Ko te kino e ahu mai ana i te iinu i te wai whakahaurangia, a, aua noa eke te hauputanga a kino, ko te pai e anga mai ana i ana wad, heaha teaha ?
Kati, mawehea atu i tera hanga hauwarea. Engari te ngaki whenua, te hanga where, teaha, teaha nga mahi a te tangata mo te tinana tae noa ki te wairua. Whaia ekoro ma, nga whakaaro whakapiki eke i a koutou, kia tau mai ai te pai, te whai mana, kia korerotia paitia korua e nga iwi o te ao.
KUA puta te ki o tenei motu, o Aotearoa kia whakamoea nga patu ki te where; kia tare te moana kei putu eke tera pepeha, " Ko Tikapa horo tangata." I
