Tū mata ki Takitimu
Ka tirohia a Piopiotahi
Ki tua atu ki te Whakatipu Waitai
Ka huri mata ki uta
Ka tū Te Korokā, tōna ata ee
Ka huri mata ki te Tonga
Ka tū a Hananui ki te Punga a Māui
Karekare Moana Ara a Kewa
E mirimiri nei i a Ruapuke
Te mana, te ihi, te wehi, te tapu
Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Mamoe, Waitaha ee
Ka huri mata ki te Mata-au
Ngā herenga takiwā o ngā taonga
Waiho mai nei ōku mātua tūpuna
Ka ū ka ū kia kikī kia kikī
Tihewa mauri ora

Ngāi Tahu Whānui
Haere mai ki Murihiku ee
Koutou haere tawhiti mai
Koutou haere tata mai
Mai i ngā tōpito o te Ao
Piki mai kake mai tauti mai rā
Koutou ngā hunga pōtae
Haere mai, herehere
Kia tau kotahi
Tino harikoa te ngākau ki te tūtakitaki i a tātou
Whitiwhiti kōrero i runga i ngā kaupapa
Te mea nui, te kaupapa whakawhanaungatanga
Nō reira e te whānau, haere mai, haere mai, haere mai
Tauti mai rā
Mauri ora kia tātou

Kia ora e te whānau!
Join us at Stadium Southland in Waihōpai (Invercargill) for Hui-ā-Iwi 2019.

This year’s event is centred on Ka Tū Te Tītī – the return home. Hui-ā-Iwi is a three-day event dedicated to all things Ngāi Tahu – it is a celebration of whanaungatanga and Ngāi Tahutanga. It is about remembering and connecting as iwi, hapū, and whānau. It is a call to Ngāi Tahu whānau throughout Aotearoa and the world to come back to what binds us all – our whakapapa and whenua.

The tītī migrates across the globe but always returns to gather on the southernmost islands of Te Waipounamu.  Just like the tītī, our whānau are forever connected as Ngāi Tahu and of this whenua, no matter where in the world they choose to live.

Murihiku is home to tio, toheroa and tītī (not to mention stunning national parks), so lots to explore while you’re here too. While you’re in Waihōpai, you can also check out the famous Bill Richardson Transport World museum, Demolition World, and E Hayes & Sons museum – the home of The World’s Fastest Indian.

There will be something for everyone – entertainment, delicious kai, an open forum and report back session, stalls, rangatahi and tamariki activities, kapa haka, waka ama, and even a kaumātua high tea!

If you can’t make it to Murihiku, you don’t have to miss out as we will be live broadcasting the entire event right here!
