Te mahi ika ki Tōtaranui

Te mahi ika ki Tōtaranui

He pikitia tēnei o ētahi tāngata Māori e mahi ika ana ki Tōtaranui i te tau 1788. Kua hoki mai ētahi kaihī ki uta – kei te tuitui tētahi i āna ika ki te muka, e waha ana tētahi i āna. Hei ētahi wā, tini te tangata ka haere ki te mahi ika. Tokomaha rawa atu ngā tāngata ka noho ki te hanga kupenga me te hao i te mano mano ika.
