Ko Tūtānekai

Ko Tūtānekai

Kei te pokapū o te tāone o Rotorua te whakairo o Tūtānekai nei e whakatangi ana i tōna kōauau. Noho rawa ai a Tūtānekai te motu o Mokoia kei te moana o Rotorua. Ahakoa he kāwai rangatira ōna, he tamaiti pōriro a ia. Hei tama kē a ia mā Tūwharetoa, te rangatira nō Kawerau i tūpono atu ki te moutere. Ka murua te hara o Rangiuru e tana tāne e Whakaue, ka riro māna te tamaiti hei whāngai. Ka pākeke a Tūtānekai he tangata pūrotu, he tohunga haka, he toa ki ngā mahi tākaro a ia. Nō konei pā ki a ia te hae a ōna tuākana. Nō tētahi hui ki Ōwhata, kei ngā pareparenga rāwhiti o te roto riro ai ngā manawa o te tokowhā nei ki te wahine ātaahua ki a Hinemoa.
