Tēnā koutou, Ko David (Rāwiri) Ratū taku ingoa, nō te iwi o Ngaati Te Ata, Te Waiohua, Waikato-Tainui, Ngaati Maniapoto. Greetings, David (Rāwiri) Ratū is my name. I am a descendant of the Ngaati Te Ata, Te Waiohua, Waikato-Tainui and Ngaati Maniapoto Tribes. Paimārire – goodness and peace.
I need to indicate that the tikanga I will be using throughout the course will be that of my iwi, Waikato. The only time I will reference another iwi is to indicate a difference in dialect.
