This is again my message to you. So you will know the places, they are written here for you: Warewiti, Pueru, Topetihi, Puwarawara, Tuparekohai, Kahu, Te Pakira-o-Rangitaituku, Tapuikaruru, Te Kupari, Pungatere, Papawero, Ngatorua, Heao, Tapairu, Moetu, Waiorua. These places belong to me, and to my ancestors, male elders, relations, brothers and female elders. So I have the right to all this.
