Kōrero: Te whakatere waka

Te whakamahi i te waka hei kāpehu

He hoahoa tēnei e titiro whakararo ana ki tētahi waka. Ka whakaroherohea te pae o te rangi ki etahi ‘whare’, ā, ka tohua ngā whare nei ki ngā rauawa o te waka. I mārama ngā tohunga ka rerekē te rere o te rā me ngā whetū i te rangi i ngā wāhanga o te tau. E ahu ana te waka nei ki te raki ki te pahore o Rēhua. I tēnei wā ka whiti te rā i te rāwhiti, ka heke i te uru. Hei ngā pō, kua tātaria ngā ara o ngā whetū hei tohu i te huarahi tika. Hei tauira, i te toremitanga o Whetū A, ka tātaria ko Whetū B. Ka haere tonu te mahi nei mō te pō, kia whiti anō te rā. Whakamahia ai ngā tohu o te rā i ngā ata hāpara me ngā ahiahi pō.
