I have been asked by a dearly beloved friend of mine to play at her Pagan wedding in a circle of prehistoric stones on the wild west cost of Ireland in a few weeks time. She is marrying a Maori man and she has asked if I could source an English version of Pokakare ana. The stuff I have found on google is fairly rubbish.   Do any of you Catters have a decent translation I could sing.   I would be eternally grateful for any help...regards....M

Try Kiwifolk.com where there is a comprehensive list of NZ songs.

The song was written in Maori, or by a Maori lady, anyway, so everyone sings it at least partly in Maori.

It was written by a man.

Maori is one of the easiest languages in the world to pronounce. Just do the original.
