Whakatipu rīwai

Whakatipu rīwai

Tere tonu te Māori ki te whakatipu i te poaka me te rīwai. Nō konei kua kore e matekai, ā, kua piki ake te kano ārai mate. Nā Cyprian Bridge i tā tēnei pikitia i te tau 1845 e whakaatu ana i tētahi māra rīwai ki te taha matau o te pā – e whakaarotia ana nā Tāmati Wāka Nene tēnei pā ki Ōkaihau.
