Ko te Whare Tapu o Ngāpuhi

He mea hanga tōku whare, ko Papatuānuku te paparahi.
Ko nga maunga nga poupou, ko Ranginui e titiro iho nei, te tuanui.
Pūhanga-tohora titiro ki Te Ramaroa e whakakurupaeake ra i te Hauāuru.
Te Ramaroa titiro ki Whīria, te Paiaka o te riri, te kawa o Rāhiri.
Whīria titiro ki Panguru, ki Papata, ki te rākau tū papata ki te tai Hauāuru;
Panguru, Papata titiro ki Maungataniwha.
Maungataniwha titiro ki Tokerau.
Tokerau titiro ki Rākaumangamanga.
Rākaumangamanga titiro ki Manaia, e tū kōhatu mai rā i te akau.
Manaia titiro ki Tutamoe.
Tutamoe titiro ki Maunganui.
Maunganui titiro ki Pūhanga-tohora.
Ehara aku maunga i te maunga nekeneke, he maunga tū tonu, tū te Ao tū te Po.
Ko te Whare Tapu o Ngāpuhi tenei, tihei mauri ora.

This whakatauki depicts the sacred house of Ngāpuhi. Ranginui (sky father), is the overarching Tuānui (roof), with the sacred Mountains being the Poupou (pillars).

The boundaries are within the area covered by these sacred Maunga (mountains), of Ngāpuhi. 

Tipu ake ai au me te rongo i eenei o ngaa whakatauki e tohu ana i te mana nui o Ngapuhi.

Erangi inaianei, ka tae e au te kii, kua haere atu ai au ki tona tihi, kua kake ai au i nga tapuwae ki te keokeotanga, ka whai paanga ki nga hau, ki nga manu, ki nga rakau, ki nga toka o te maunga rangatira nei, ara ko Maunga Taniwha.

When te tinana is feeling bleh, and the hinengaro feels like mush, the wairua is feeling flat, thats a good time to get to walking. And what a perfect maunga to recalibrate the whare tapawha!
