Graduation Waiata and translation
(Kaea*) Manu tiria,
Manu werohia ki te poho o Te Raka
Ka tau rērere
Ka tau mai i te ruhi
E tau e koia a
koia ko Tararauriki
Kī Mai Māui
Ehara I te whitu me te waru e
E tau e koia, koia
*Kaea = leader
This song talks about when to plant (ruhi or during January) and when not to plant (whitu and Waru or November and December) Kūmara. It also relates to the story of Māui changing into a kereru and following his father into the underworld.
