Kōrero: Kākahu Māori

He titireia tohorā (1 o 3)

He titireia tohorā

I whakairotia tēnei titireia (30 henemita te roa, 10 henemita te whānui) i te kōiwi kotahi. He kanohi pāua tō te manaia. He whānui te whakamahi o te titireia e te hunga tāne rangatira. Nā te tapu o ēnei taonga kīhai i tukuna mā tētahi atu e mau. E ai rā te tikanga ki te nuinga, ka tapukehia i te taha o te kaipupuri i tōna matenga. Hei te hahunga o ngā kōiwi, ka haere ngā karakia whakanoa, ka pai noa te tuku atu ki te reanga hou.
