20 Dec Whanautanga Mai a Pēpi
E tū whakaruruhau mō te moko nei.
Ko ngā maunga tapu o Mauao, o Maungarake, o Huruiki,
Maringi mai ana ko ngā awa o Ruamahanga, o Whakapara,
Ko ngā wai pīataata o Tauranga moana.
Te ūnga mai o ngā waka Te Arawa, Tākitimu, Ngātokimatawhaorua, o Tainui.
Uri o Te Arawa, Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāpuhi, Te Aupōuri, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāti Kahungunu, Kai Tahu, o Tainui anō hoki.
Nei rā te whānautanga mai o te tama nei ki te ao mārama.
Ko Tangaroa Te Huaki Travis Jacob Proctor tēnei.
Descendant of Mātene Te Huaki, grandchild/moko of both Travis Ormsby and Jacob Proctor, mātāmua of Pianika Teru Ida Ray Ormsby and Tatai Arorangi Proctor, our newest Toi Tangata pēpi rapidly came into this world on Monday 29th November at 8:04pm whilst under the influence of the Tangaroa-ā-Kiokio marama. Comfortably sitting in māmā’s puku, Tangaroa arrived two full weeks after his expected due date (15/11/21) testing all of his whānau’s patience.
Tangaroa, descending from long lines of greatness, your tūpuna have laid the foundation and your tribes and villages are here to nurture, inspire and support you into all that you are and all that you will be. Kia toi tangata e.
