We are learning a womens HAKA!!

Kia Ora koutou,
Ko Hikurangi toku maunga
Ko Waiapu toku awa
Ko Ngatiporou toku iwi
Ko Rakiora Parker raua ko Rosie Northover oku tipuna i te taha o toku papa
Ko George Borlase raua ko Te Oraiti Grace oku tipuna i te taha o toku mama
Ko Toddy Parker toku papa
Ko Georgina Borlase toku mama
Ko Rosie Parker taku ingoa
Tena hoki tatou katoa

Kia Ora ano this is my Pepeha (my Maori introduction making connections with where I have come from). I started this post with my pepeha because I am currently teaching the girls in the RSS Kapa Haka a womens haka. This haka is called "Panapana" and it originated from Ngatiporou. I have used the original words for the haka because they are the words I was taught as a child attending Hiruharama bi-lingual School.
Here are the words and a recording....
Kaea. A ra ra! Ka panapana!
I a ha ha! Aue
Kaea. Ka rekareka tonu taku ngakau
Ki nga mana ririki i Pohatu-whakapiri,
Kia haramai 
te takitini, 
kia haramai 
te takimano,
Kia paretaitokotia ki huria !
Hi! Ha! Aue !!
Kaea. He mamae, he mamae!
I a ha ha ! Aue !
Kaea. Ka haere, ka haere taku powhiri
Ki te tai whakarunga!
Katoa. Hoki mai, hoki mai taku tinana!
Kaea.
Ka haere, ka haere taku powhiri
Ki te tai whakararo!
Katoa.
Hoki mai, hoki mai taku tinana!
Kaea.
Kia huri au ki te tai whakatu a Kupe,
Ki te tai o Matawhero i motu mai!
E ko te hoariri ki roto i aku ringa
Kutia rawatia, kia pari tona ihu!
Hi! Ha!
Aue kss kss kss
