Ko wai, ko au, ko tātou

Ko te wai ahau, ko ahau te wai
He whakaaturanga tātau nō te wai
Ko te ora te wai ko te ora o te tangata
He taonga te wai me tiaki
Ko wai tātou
Ko wai tātou

I am water, water is me
We are reflections of our water
The health of water is the health of the people
Water is a treasure that must be protected
We are water. Water is us.
