E Jon. Pohehe koe. Kihai Te Wano Tahana i moe Roharama. Toko toru nga tamariki o Atama Paparangi rau ko Ewa Nagtaiawa, ehara e kī "Ngatiawa". Pohehe hoki tō korero na nga tamariki o Moa. Ehara anō toko ono. Tekau tamariki mōna. Horekau he tātai ki te iwi o Te Atiawa. Tino rerekē te tupuna o Te Atiawa ki te tupuna o Tahana ki te raki. Tō iwi tika i te taha o Tahana nga iwi e rima o Muriwhenua. He tātai pamamao koe ki Tainui nā Reitu. Heoi ana.
