Noho mata hī taua!

Stay alert / stay woke!

Noho mata hī taua!
Stay alert!

This comes from the whakataukī:

“E moe ana te mata hī tuna, ara ana te mata hī taua”
“The eel fisher’s eyes sleep, but the eyes of the warrior are awake.”

It tells us to be alert, ready and educated about what is going on in the world around us.
