Whakataukī

Hutia te rito

Hutia te rito o te harakeke
Kei hea te kōmako e kō?
Kī mai ki ahau
He aha te mea nui o te ao?
Māku e kī atu
He tangata! He tangata! He tangata, hī!

If the shoot of the flax bush is pullet out
Where will the bellbird sing?
If you say to me
What is the greatest thing in the world?
I will say
It is people! It is people! It is people!
