E Rangi e Paho Nei to Reo
by Henare Waaka
"This artifact is a ‘mōteatea’ composed for the opening of ‘Wairere’ tupuna whare at Kai-a-te-mata Marae, in the Ngāti Werewere region of Ngāti Hauā.2 This waiata was inspired from my first semester studies at Carey Baptist College, in particular ‘Understanding Culture’...
This waiata mōteatea is my declaration of who I am, where I have come from and the promise of where I am going."

by Hamish Dobbie

I have written this mōteatea, with the purpose of being used as a waiata tautoko for all manner of Christian kaupapa."
