Toki pounamu

Toki pounamu

Neke atu i te e 500 tau te tahito o te toki pounamu nei. He taonga nā te rangatira. Ka kite ngā Pākehā tōmua i ngā tauhokohoko pounamu ki Te Ika-a-Māui me Te Wai Pounamu i te tīmatanga o te rau tau e 1800. E ai ki ngā kōrero nā Raureka ngā tauhokohoko pounamu i tīmata atu i Te Tai Poutini ki te rāwhiti o Te Wai Pounamu. Nō Ngāti Wairangi te wahine nei, ā, nāna ka mōhio a Ngāi Tahu me pēhea te tango i te pounamu ki a rātou ake.
