Moari ritual reflection

This year we have been learning about Maori ritual, including a powhiri. At the start of the year I knew a little bit about Maori ritual but now I know a lot about it. Now know my mihi off by heart and I know more waiata and the haka and I know a Karakia and I know what poroporoaki is. My mihi is 
"tena koutou 
Ko Te tihi o Aoraki Te Maunga 
Ko Otakaro te awa 
Ko Waimairi te kura 
Ko ngati Aotearoa te iwi
Ko Dom Taku papa 
Ko Kiri Taku mama 
No otautahi ahau 
Ko Sam Taku ingoa 
tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa.
