Words and Music: A Homage to Tangaroa

Grandscale Beauty: The Overview Effect Part 1 Cyanobacterial Bloom in the Baltic Sea
Every picture tells a story: Into the unknowable

I speak forward to the spirit of the great sea

To the waves to the sea foam to the sea’s many children

The children are singing the drifting songs of the ocean

They are the children of Tangaroa and the ocean of Kiwa!

Kōrero atu ana ahau ki te ia o te moana

Te Hukatai, Te Rehutai, ki ngā Ngaru ki ngā wai hukahuka

Tere rimurimu ki ngā tamariki o te moana e waiata nei

E waiata nei ngā iwi o Tangaroa o Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa!

Te kāinga o aku tīpuna i kumea ai tōku ika

E Māui Tikitiki a Taranga

E kōkō ia, e ara e!
