Ka ū ki matanuku, Ka ū ki matarangi, Ka ū ki tenei whenua hei whenua!
Mau e kai te manawa o tauhou.
Ko Tauhara toku Maunga
Ko Taupo-nui-a-tia toku Moana
Ko Waikato toku Awa
Ko Waipahihi toku Marae
Ko Hinerau me Hineure oku Hapu
Ko Te Arawa toku Waka
He uri tēnei no Ngāti Tuwharetoa.
Ko Rauhoto Isaacs ahau.
My name is Rauhoto Isaacs. I am Māori.
I hail from a place I like to call the center of the universe but to others they just call it Taupo. I was born and raised in Taupo with my Kuia and Koro. I am passionate about speaking and learning Te Reo Māori and hope one day everyone will speak Te Reo Māori in Aotearoa. I love to do Kapa Haka and have been doing Kapa Haka since I was 5 years old. I am a part of an adult Kapa Haka group Te Ahi Tipua o Tuwharetoa based in Taupo.
