kia pono ai te rua mahara o te kāwanatanga

Enabling trusted government information

E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e raurangatira mā!

Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa!

Mai Te Rua Mahara o Te Kāwanatanga e mihi atu, e mihi atu, e mihi atu

Nau mai, haere mai, whakatau mai rā

E pūrangiaho ki ngā hua, ki ngā taonga

E pupuri ana i ngā pātaka o Te Rua Mahara o Te Kāwanatanga

Nau mai, haere mai, whakatau mai rā!

Greetings, greetings, greetings

To distinguished guests and all people!

At Archives New Zealand we welcome you.

Come, come and gather around

To benefit from listening to the Taonga

That are being kept safe within Archives New Zealand.

Welcome, welcome, welcome!
