Saruja- Maori Mihi

Nga Mihi:
As you can see - everything flows from the mountain, through the river and the waka is on it.  Then the people settle so this is the order in which we say our mihi. If you have no waka or marae then just leave these words out.  REMEMBER that we are posting our mihi on the blog, so only use first names but you would use full names when sharing it in 'real life'.

Ko Lakegala toku maunga (mountain)
Ko Malvathu toku awa (river)
No Sri Lanka ahau (I am from)
Kei Panmure toku kainga inaianei (I now live)
Ko Panmure Bridge toku kura (school)
Ko Sarveswaran toku ingoa whanau (family)
Ko Sarveswaran  toku matua (father)
Ko Sri Devi toku whaea (mother)
Ko Saruja toku ingoa (my name)

No reira
