"Kaore i kotahi
te whakahaere o nga tikanga a iwi
He iwi ano me ona tohunga me ona tikanga me ana whakahaere
Hiki atu he iwi, pera tonu. No reira, kia mau koe ki ou ake.
Ma o ratau uri e mau o ratau na korero.
Engari kia mau koe ki nga korero a ou matua, a ou tupuna.
Ina ka tika, ka waiho mai etahi matauranga hei taonga mou" Te Whatahoro Jury, 1865
"There was no one universal system of teaching in the Whare-wananga
Each tribe had its own priests, its own colleges, and its own methods
From tribe to tribe this was so. My word to you is:
“Hold steadfastly to our teaching,
let their descendants adhere to their teaching,
and you to yours
So that if you err, it was we who declared it unto you, and if you are right,
it was we who shall leave to you these valuable taonga"
