Kōrero: Nōnahea a Aotearoa nōhia tuatahitia ai?

Ngā heke i Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa

Ngā heke i Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa

I nōhia a Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa e ngā tāngata i hoe mai i te uru mā runga waka hourua. Heoi, ko te heke ki Aotearoa anake te heke kāore i whai i tēnei ia, ka wehe rā anō i Poronihia ki te rāwhiti kia heke ki te tonga mā uru. Ki te hoe koe atu i Poronihia i te rāwhiti ki Aotearoa, ka mahue e koe ngā hau āwaha (easterly), ka kuhu koe ki tētahi wāhi o te moana, me uaua ka mōhio koe e pupuhi pēhea ana ngā hau. Nāwai, ā, ka rongo koe i ngā hautūmū o te tuauru (westerly headwinds); he tāpokopoko, mātao ēnei wai. Heoi he rite te wā i te paunga o te kōanga me te raumati, ka huri te pupuhi o ngā hau e māmā ai te hoe ki te uru. Kāore hoki e nui te āwhā i tērā kaupeka o te tau.
