Te Waka o Aoraki.

Land of the long white cloud,
Nieuw Zeeland,
And a Maori proud.

Unique land,
Aoraki, and his brothers,
Sons of Rakinui,
Sky father, their druthers.

Voyage around Papatuanuku,
Earth Mother, in a canoe,
Frozen in time,
The South Island is you.

Brothers and Crew,
Southern Alps to the sea,
New Zealand’s South Island,
Te Waka o Aoraki.
