He uiuinga me Tānga Tomoana mō tana pāpā a Paraire Hēnare Tomoana me tana whakatipuranga anō hoki. I kuraina a Tānga ki te kura o Te Aute, ki reira whai ai i tana mahi tito waiata. Nā whai anō ka tipu ake āna pūkenga whakatangi taonga puoro. E ai ki ngā kōrero, he tangata kaiaka ki te hākinakina a Paraire, ahakoa te totitoti o tana waewae. Nā, ko Elizabeth Minhinnick tana hoa wāhine, nō Taranaki. Kāti, ka kōrero a Taanga mō te waiata rā e kīia nei ko "Hoea rā te waka nei", me te aha, nā Tā Apirana Ngata ngā kupu i whakapākehā, "Come ye maidens come to me with your gifts of melody." Kātahi a Taanga ka kōrero mō te waiata rā e kīia nei ko "E pari rā.' E ai ki ngā kōrero i titoa e Paraire tēnei waiata hei whakamaharatanga ki ngā tamariki i mate ki tērā atu taha o te ao.
