Kōrero: Ngāi Tahu

Māpoutahi

Māpoutahi

I te rau tau atu i 1700 ka heke whakatetonga haere tonu a Ngāi Tahu i Te Wai Pounamu; ka pakanga, ka moe rātou ki ngā iwi ka tūpono atu rātou; nō muri, ka hohouhia te rongo, ka mārie te noho i te whenua. Ka hanumi ngā whakapapa o ngā iwi tawhito, a Waitaha rāua ko Ngāti Māmoe, ki roto i ō Ngāi Tahu. Ko tētahi o ngā wāhi i pakanga ai a Ngāi Tahu ki a Ngāti Māmoe ko te pā o Māpoutahi, kei runga i te kūrae ki tua tonga o te whanga o Blueskin, ki waho ake i te takutai moana o Ōtākou.
