Wai ora. Tangata ora. - Healthy water. Healthy people.

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.
