Te kurī o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Te kurī o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Nā ngā iwi tuatahi te kurī me te kiore i mau mai ki Aotearoa. Heoi kīhai te heihei me te poaka i tae ki Aotearoa. He whakairo kurī tēnei – tētahi o ngā taonga tawhito rawa kia kitea ki Aotearoa – i tūhuratia ki roto i tētahi ana kei Redcliffs i Ōtautahi. I whakamahia te ana nei e ngā kaumoana tuatahi ki Aotearoa.
