Te rohe o Te Arawa

Te rohe o Te Arawa

I te ūnga o Te Arawa ki Aotearoa, ka torotoro ngā tāngata ki Te Moana-a-Toitehuatahi, atu i Whangaparāoa (Cape Runaway) i te rāwhiti, ki Te Waitematā i te raki. I tana taenga ake ki Aotearoa, i te kapi katoa te whenua i te wao, tae noa atu ki te takutai. Ka tahuna te whenua kia wātea ai he huarahi ki uta. Ka kaha te tipu o te aruhe, te tī, te tutu. Ka tīmata te kuhu haere o ngā iwi ki ngā roto me ngā waiariki o Rotorua. Ko te pepeha a Te Arawa mō tōna rohe whenua, ‘Mai i Maketū ki Tongariro, Ko Te Arawa te waka’, ko te ihu o te waka kei Maketū, ko te kei i te maunga o Tongariro.
