Kōrero: Ngāti Whātua

Te waiata a Tītahi

I mua tata i te taenga o Kāpene Hēmi Kuki ki Aotearoa, i matakite a Tītahi, te rangatira o Ngāti Whātua, tērā te wā ka whakaekea rātou i Te Waitematā (e whakaaturia nei) e ngā āhuatanga o te ao hōu. E whai ake nei ko Wiremu Rēweti me te waiata a Tītahi:

He aha te hau e wawara mai
He tiu, he raaki
Nāna i ā mai te pūpūtarakihi ki uta
E tīkina atu e au ki te kōtiu
Kukume mai ai?
Koia te pou whakairo ka tū ki Waitematā
I aku wairangi e.
