Waiata: Taku pā harakeke e

The waiata, Taku pā harakeke e, was gifted to Te Kahui Oranga ō Nuku for use at RANZCOG NZ hui and events.  Taku pā harakeke e was written with the help of Aotearoa singer/songwriter Maisey Rika at He Hono Wāhine’s Hui-ā-tau at Ōnuku Marae in October 2018.

The waiata, Taku pā harakeke e, was first sung at the opening of the 2019 RANZCOG NZ Annual Scientific Meeting in Kirikiriroa by Kiara Paul.


Listen to Kiara Paul sing Taku pā harakeke e

Waiata words and translation

Taku pā harakeke e

Ko te oranga o te iwi
He Wāhine He Atua
Te tapu o te whare tāngata
He oranga he oranga

Ko te taonga nui o te ao
He mokopuna He kakano
I ruia mai i rangiātea
He taonga He taonga

Te Kāhui Oranga ō Nuku e
He waipuna ora e
Mai i te po ki te ao mārama

Taku pā harakeke e


My village my family

The wellbeing of humankind
From Women and Gods
And the sacredness of childbirth
It is life it is life

The greatest gift in the world
A child and seed
Sown in Rangiātea
A gift and a treasure

The NZ Committee of RANZCOG
A wellspring of health
'ab umbris ad lumina vitae' 'from shadows to the light of life'

My village my family
