E kore au e ngaro, he kākano i ruia mai i Rangiātea
I will never be lost or forgotten, for I am a seed sown in Rangiātea

Kākano means “seed”; a person, like a seed, is inextricably linked to generations who have gone and are yet to come. Ruia means to sow the building blocks of potential; the connections and the enduring strength of relationships and location. Rangiātea is the origin of Māori migration; it represents the wider world, the journey of potential and arrival at the point of opportunity to realise it.
