ko rangitumau te maunga,
ko ruamahanga te awa,
ko papauma te marae,
ko te hika a papauma te hapū,
ko ngāti kahungunu ki wairarapa, ki tamaki-nui-ā-rua, ki te wairoa ngā iwi,
ko potangaroa rāua ko tamihana ngā ingoa whānau,
ko trinity thompson-browne tōku ingoa.
tēnā tātau e hoa mā, nei he uri nō ngā tukemata o kahungunu e mihi atu ana.
my name is trinity, i’m 24 years old in physical years, though my wairua is a lot older. i love my people and my art exists to heal. first my words healed me, now i share them that they may heal others. i’m takatāpui and austistic. my dream is to have my art in every kura and every whare in aotearoa. when this happens, i will give thanks to the atua and my tīpuna, knowing that i will have fulfilled a part of the mahi they put on te ao mārama to do. mauri ora.
