This waiata was composed by Raiha Paraone of Waimanoni. It speaks of the Ngai Takoto people, the Ngāi Takoto landscape and the pepeha of the people. The waiata was proliferated by the 4 marae of Ngai Takoto and is very often used as a waiata tautoko after welcoming whaikōrero from the haukāinga. 

In this particular recording of the waiata one can hear the voice of Lance Brown, Ritihia Paraone and Mere Taylor
