Ko Waipa te whenua....Waipa are my lands.
Ko Hikairo te iwi....Hikairo is my tribe.
Ko Hikairo te ragatira....Hikairo is my (ancestral) chief (after which the tribe is named).

Ko Rawhiri Pere te ingoa...David Bell (your own name) is my name.
Here's some informal mihi (greetings) and responses

Tena korua...Hello you (two people)...(Ten aa ko roo a)
Tena koutou...Hello to you (three or more)
Tena koutou katoa...hello to the whole damn lot of you and too bad if my Maori is poor at least I'm trying!
