Kōrero: Te whānau puha

Tūtarakauika

Tūtarakauika

Nā Todd Couper o Ngāti Kahungungu tēnei whakaaturanga. Kua whakaritea te hiku o Tūtarakauika ki tētahi tohora, i haere ngātahi mai ki Aotearoa me te waka Tākitimu. I a Ruawharo, te tohunga o Tākitimu waka, e noho ana ki Te Māhia, ka whakatipua e ia te mauri o ngā tohorā me ngā ika ki reira. Ka tonoa e Ruawharo a Tūtarakauika hei kaitiaki mō ngā rangatira o Te Wairoa. I ngā wā ka raru ngā waka i te marangai, ka kawea rātou ki te ākau e Tūtarakauika.
