Ki a Ngāti Whātua Iwi,
Me ngā Iwi katoa o Aotearoa, 

Tēnei ka tuku mihi māhana,
Mai i te Kuini o Aotearoa,
Mai i taku hoa rangatira, 
Me taku whānau whānui, 
Tēnā koutou katoa. 

To Ngāti Whātua Iwi, 
And all Iwi of New Zealand, 
I bring warmest greetings, 
From the Queen of New Zealand, 
From my wife,
And from all my family, 
Greetings to you all.
