Rohe map for Ngāpuhi.

He mea hanga toku whare, ko Papatuanuku te paparahi. Ko nga maunga nga poupou; ko Ranginui e titiro iho nei, te tuanui. Puhangatohora titiro ki Te Ramaroa e whakaurupaeake ra i te Hauauru, Te Ramaroa titiro ki Whiria to paiaka o te riri te kawa o Rahiri, Whiria titiro ki Panguru, ki Papata, kite rakau tu papata kite tai Hauauru; Panguru, Papata titiro ki Maungataniwha, Maungataniwha titiro ki Tokerau, Tokerau titiro ki Rakaumangamanga, Rakaumangamanga titiro ki Manaia, e tu kohatu ma ra i te akau, Manaia titiro ki Tutamoe, Tutamoe titiro ki Maunganui, Maunganui titiro ki Puhangatohora. Ehara aku maunga i te maunga nekeneke, he maunga tu tonu, tu te Ao tu te Po. Ko te Whare Tapu o Ngapuhi tenei tihei Mauri ora!

Within my house, Papatuanuku is the footstool beneath, the mountains are the supportive posts and we see Ranginui, the ceiling above us. Puhangatohora looks across to Te Ramaroa, Te Ramaroa looks to Whiria, the sacred mountain of Rahiri, his seat of war, Whiria looks toward Panguru, to Papata to the trees swaying in the westerly wind; From Panguru, Papata to Maungataniwha, Maungataniwha towards Tokerau, Tokerau to Rakaumangamanga, Rakaumangamanga to Manaia, which stands near the rocky coast, from Manaia to Tutamoe, Tutamoe to Maunganui, and Maunganui to Puhangatohora. My mountains will always stand firm, through daylight and darkness, because this is the sacred house of Ngapuhi, giving me life!
