Te Rerekohu Tuterangiwhiu
Ko Mongero te Maunga. Ko te Huehue te Awa. Ka rere ki Punakītere, Ka rere ki te awa o Waimā-Tuhirangi, Ka rere ki te Puna o te Ao Mārama, ki te awa o Te Hokianga nui a Kupe, ka tau ki te Moana Tapokopoko a Tawhaki. Ko Ngai Tāwake ko Ngati Waihārō tēnei. I tupu ake ahau i roto i te Tai Tokerau, ā, ko te reo Māori tōku reo tuatahi, otirā, tōku oro whanake. Ko te ao māori te tāhuhu nui o āku mahi katoa.

Te Rerekohu’s approach to research was inspired by growing up in the presence of native speakers and practitioners of mātauranga Māori in Ngāpuhi.
