Waikato te awa
Katohia, katohia
He wai mau
Katiohia he wai mau
Kaheke ki te puaha o Waikato, te awa
He piko he taniwha (He piko he taniwha)
Kia tupato ra kei tahuri koe
I nga ua kaha o Waikato
Whakamau to titiro ki tawhiti ra
Ko Taupiri te Maunga
Potatau te tangata
Te Mauri o te motu e-

E hoe to waka, ki Ngaruawahia
Turangawaewae mo te ao katoa
te tongi whakamutunga a Matutaera
Aue hoki Aue

This is a very famous chant for Waikato tainui.

Paimarire

PS: kaore au kia whakapakehatia tenei waiata. Ka mea mai ki ahau i roto i te reo maori, ara ka mea atu i te reo maori na te mea, kia whakangaro te mauri o te wai.

Te tikanga o te wai nei i te kaha o te awa me nga taangata e noho ana ki ona taha. No te timata ki te mutunga o te awa. Nga rangatira o Waikato, tetahi marae o nga Kaahui ariki, nga waahi etahi atu.

These are some I know

He iti na Motai - Motai the ancestor

He aha koe i haere mai ai i te rourou iti, te noho atu ai i te tokanga nui a noho: by the ancestor Parawhete to her husband Wairangi at Aea pa Te Aroha area.

* ma wai aku werewere e kawe mai said by one of Te Rauparaha's female kin when asking who would bring the Raukawa tribes down into Otaki.

* Waikato whakahoro pounamu from the battle of hinga-kaka which was a inter-tribal battle, Waikato were the ones who won victory, from which the name Te Rauangaanga comes from that battle and quite a few chiefs fell hence the name HINGAKAKA and the saying Waikato whakahoro pounamu.

Kiaora have you read the book Tainui by Pei Te Huirnui and Bruce Briggs, its full of knowledge about Tainui and our famouse ancestors, whakapapa, stories, whakataukii go check it out!

* Tainui tangata rau (Tainui in there hundreds)

* Kaawhia moana, Kaawhia kai, Kaawhia tangata (Where an abundance of food and sustance there is an abundance of people)

Depending on what iwi u come from, there are diff whakatauki for different iwi within Tainui. Our most famouse within Maniapoto is of course...

*A muri ake, kia mau ki teena, kia mau ki te kawau maaroo
(The last words of Maniapoto to his people instructing them to take the flight of the comorant or shag when entering battle)

Ngaati Raukawa...

* Taku ara rā, ko Tūrongo;
I wawaea ki Te Tai Rāwhiti,
Ko Māhinaarangi! I au e!
Ko te rua rā i moe ai a Raukawa
He kawai tootika ki ahau e

Meenaa noo Waikato koe...

*Waikato horo pounamu (kua whakamaarama kee teenei)

*Waikato taniwha rau, he piko he taniwha, he piko he taniwha

Theres alot of whakataukii and whakatauaakii pertaining to individual ancestors too such as Ngaatokowaru and Wairangi.

He whakataukii moo teena iwi, moo teena hapuu o Tainui. He whakataukii moo Ngaati Mahanga, mo Ngaati Mahuta, mo Ngaati Maru...maa te rangahau me te whakawhiti koorero ka mau i a koe eenei taaonga

Your first post ever Te Rauroha and thats all you have to say? This site is about the upliftment of Maori not whakaiti.

Kia tupato e hoa, kei te maha nga taangata tohunga e noho ana ki te takiwa o Ngati Paoa.

And hiding behind a fake name and a computer screen will not help you there.

Damn right! I am not Ngati Paoa but I am sure it would not matter which iwi was called dumb, that statement is meant to insult, intentional or not!

There are certain things that just arent funy and kia takahia te mana o tena iwi, tena hapu is definitely not!

I challenge that person to go to Ngati Paoa and say that!
