Maori proverbs, called whakatauki, are sayings that reflect the thoughts, values and advice of past generations.

Toitu he whenua whatungarongaro he tangata
Land is permanent, man disappears

Manaki whenua, manaki tangata, haere whakamua
Care for the land, care for the people, go forward

Waiho i te toipoto, kaua i te toiroa
Let us keep close together, not far apart

Ko taku reo taku ohooho, ko taku reo taku mapihi maurea
My language is my awakening, my language is the window to my soul

Aroha atu, aroha mai
Love received, love returned

Ko maru kai atu, ko maru kai mai, ka ngohengohe
Give as well as take, and all is well

Taku toa, he toa Rangatira
My bravery is inherited from my ancestor

E raka te maui, e raka te katau
A community can use all the skills of its people
