Roots

Location

From savages to warriors my ancestors were strong

in my veins and soul my bloodline runs long

because I was born into this life

it was God's will for me to strive

Like the Ha'utu Island where my father was born

I hold down the strength of his people with the sharp and

fearful hands that were passed down to me

And like the Taunga Isalnd where my beautiful and memorable

mother was born I hold the fragile heart of her people and

carry it throughout our breed

- Lola Vi-Ha'atoa
