Story: Māori fiction – ngā tuhinga paki

Ko Tu nā Patricia Grace

Ko Tu nā Patricia Grace

I riro i a Patricia Grace te tohu mētara Deutz mō te pakimaero toa ki ngā whakamānawa pukapuka o Montana New Zealand Book Awards i te tau 2004 mō tōna pakimaero a Tū. Ka whai ngā kōrero i a Tu, he tama i tapaina ki te atua o te pakanga a Tūmatauenga. Ka hono atu rātou ko ōna tuakana ko Rangi, ko Pita, ki Ope Rua Tekau Mā Waru i te Pakanga Tuarua o te Ao. Ko ia anake te mea i hoki ora mai. Ka kuika ia ki te ngaronga o ōna tuākana me ngā hoa, ā, ka whakamomori ki ngā pāhuatanga o te riri. Nāwai, nāwai ka pātai āna irāmutu he pēhea te pakanga. Ko tōna tukunga tērā i tana hautaka hei pānui mā rāua.
