Kōrero: Te Ao Mārama

Ngake rāua ko Whātaitai

Ngake rāua ko Whātaitai

He taniwha a Ngake rāua ko Whātaitai, ko tō rāua kāinga kei Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Inā te whakaahua nei, kei te keri a Ngake i te awaawa ki te moana o Raukawa. Kei te takoto koromeke a Whātaitai kia auaha te kūrae i waenganui i a Motukairangi me te taha uru o te whanga. E ai ki te kōrero, i te matenga o Whātaitai ka whakamanu tōna wairua ka eke ki te tihi o Tangi te keo tangi ai.
