A Ranginui, a Papatūānuku me ā rāua tamariki

A Ranginui, a Papatūānuku me ā rāua tamariki

I tēnei whakairo, ko Papatūānuku kei te taha mauī (i runga rawa), ko Ranginui kei te taha matau (i runga rawa); ko ā rāua tamariki kei raro iho. Ko Papatūānuku ki runga, kei raro ko Tānemahuta te atua o te ngahere, ko Haumia-tiketike te atua o ngā aruhe me ngā kai mata. Waihoki, ko Ranginui ki runga, kei raro ko Tangaroa te atua o ngā moana, ko Rongo te atua o te rongomau me te kai hauhake. Nā Rangi Hetet o Ngāti Tūwharetoa me Ngāti Maniapoto ēnei whakairo i auaha. Nā āna tamāhine tokorua ngā tukutuku o waenganui i raranga.
