Tena koutou katoa e nga uri o te hunga kua mene ki tua o te pae o maumahara. Apiti hono tatai hono, te hunga mate ki a ratou. Tena hoki koutou e te manawhenua, e Ngati Noongar, na koutou te reo powhiri, te reo karanga. No reira mihi mai ra, whakatau mai ra. I bring greetings to you, the descendants of those who are gathered beyond the horizon of memory. May our ancestors join each other in greeting as we, their living faces, join each other this day. I offer my respect to the people whose fires of authority burn in this land. To the Noongar people, I come in answer to your invitation and your call. I ask that you bid me welcome and grant me hospitality in your land.
