KA MĀNU OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

In the face of great adversity, faith is a powerful agent; Faith in the divine, yourself, your purpose, your kaupapa, your supporters, your atua and the core beliefs that maintain your aroha and your mana in times of great hardship. With the growing conflicts at Ihumātao and Maunakea, Standing Rock, the continued marginalisation of indigenous peoples, perpetual injustices historic and current and the narratives surrounding the 250 year celebrations of Capt. James Cooks landing in Tūranga – faith is the stabiliser, the enabler that continues to manifest goodness and moral courage in all the kaupapa we uphold and the immense burdens we carry. Whakapono affords us clarity in times of calamity, an unyielding drive to endure and overcome, that our spirit may still rejoice to the gentle song of peace that faith brings to our struggle.

LYRICS
Ka Mānu
Nā Rob Ruha
2019

E te hunga whakapono iti
Me haere māori i runga i te moana nui
E tā!

Ka whati te moana nui – e tā!
Ka whati te moana roa – e tā!
Ka mānu, ka mānu tonu e tā – e tā

He waka tē ai tahuri – e tā!
He waka tē ai tīkoki – e tā!
Ka mānu, ka mānu tonu e tā – e tā

Hikohiko te uira,
Kanapa i runga
Whētuki i raro rā
Ka papā, ka rū ana
Ka porepore koa e
Takinakina e – E tā!
Takinakina e – E tā!
Takinakina e – E tā!
Takinakina e – E tā!

TRANSLATION
Oh ye of little faith
Walk forth with ease upon the great ocean

Though the seas may roar
And the oceanic expanse rage
You will remain afloat

For you command a vessel that shall never be overturned nor unsteadied
You will remain afloat

Lightning may flash
Illuminating the heavens above
Sending rolling thunder below
Resounding, trembling
Though overcome with fear
Ascend
Prevail
Lead
Sing!
