Tāwhirimātea te atua o te hau

Koinei te atua o te hau i a Tāwhirimātea. E mau ana kei tōna ringa te whatitiri, ā, e karapotia ana ia e te āwhiowhio. I tīmata te pakanga a Tāwhirimātea ki ōna tungāne i te wehenga o Ranginui rāua ko Papatūānuku. Ko ōna tungāne i noho me tō rātou māmā, ko a ia anake i noho me tō rātou matua.
