Te hei tiki a Taiaroa

Te hei tiki a Taiaroa

Kotahi anake te taha o te nuinga o ngā hei tiki. Heoi anō tēnei hei tiki, kua whakairotia ngā taha e rua. Nā tērā rangatira o Ngāi Tahu nā Te Mātenga Taiaroa te taonga. I tōna matenga ka riro te hei tiki i tana tama a Hōri Kerei Taiaroa, mema pāremata Māori mō Te Wai Pounamu i ōna rā.
