He patu

Nāwai ā, ka tū ko te pakanga te umanga nui a te Māori. Nā te whenua me te rangatiratanga ka pakanga ngā iwi. Ko ā rātou rākau patu i mahia mai i te kōhatu, te parāoa, te pounamu me te rākau. I te nuinga o te wā, he whawhai tūmātakitahi te momo whawhai. He wahaika (momo patu) tēnei i riro i a Kāpene Hēmi Kuki i tana haerenga tuatahitanga ki Aotearoa. Kua whakahokia noa mai tēnei taonga ki Aotearoa.
