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 wai, wai is me
We are reflections of our wai
The health of te wai is the health of te tangata
Wai is a taonga that must be protected
We are wai. Wai is us.
