Kōrero: Te auahatanga o te whenua

Te Hoata rāua ko Te Pupu

I te taenga o Ngātoroirangi ki Aotearoa mai i Hawaiki, ka haere ia ki uta hōpara haere ai. I tētahi wāhi ko Onetapu te ingoa, ka tau te makariri ki runga ki a ia. Kātahi ka karanga ia ki ana tuāhine a Te Hoata rāua ko Te Pupu, kia heria mai te ahi i Hawaiki hei whakamahana, hei whakaora i a ia. Ka rere mai te tokorua rā mā roto i te kōpū o Papatūānuku. Hei ētahi wā i tā rāua haerenga mai, ka puea ake te tokorua rā; ia pueanga, ka pupū he waiariki, he puia, he ngāwhā. Kei roto i te waiata ‘Ka eke ki Wairaka’ te kōrero mō tā rāua kawe i te ahi ki Aotearoa.
