This waiata was created out of a wordlist in my great-grandfather's (Teone Taare Tikao) book, Tikao Talks. It pays tribute to various goddesses: Hinearoraki - who controls the flight of birds; Hinearoaropari - the guardian of the echo that resounds off a cliff; and four wind goddesses: Hinepunuitetoka (sw), Hinehauone (e & ne), Hineroriki (n) and Hinerotia (w).
