It is with heart felt aroha that the Grandmothers were so fortunate to have the above members of the next generation present and willing to support and contribute to the development of the Brief WAI 1940. The Grandmothers listed above thank you with all our hearts and are profoundly grateful, for the intelligence and mana given to them by all of you. Thank you for the wonderful food and the company of our mokopuna and the kindness that you all showed to us. We will never forget you. Your Tupuna Whaea o Waitaha
