“Know that you are a gift, which was created in love and is supported with love. You have the hands of Mother Earth, Papatūānuku, on you, and the hands of Father Sky, Ranginui, on you. They are what hold you together.
You are made of the water from the Earth and the water from the Sky.
They are the spirit of love.“
– Erena Rangimarie Rere Omaki Rhöse (Aotearoa-New Zealand)
