Tūheitia

Tūheitia

Ko Tūheitia te matua o Māhanga, te tupuna o Ngāti Māhanga. Ahakoa he tangata manaaki a Tūheitia, i tinihangatia, i patua a ia ki te moana. Nō konei ka huri a Tūheitia hei taniwha, ka noho ki te awa o Waipā. Ka kitea i tēnei whakairo te hiku o Tūheitia, he tohu ki tana huri hei taniwha. Ko tēnei whakairo, kei waho i te Hōtēra Novotel Tainui i Kirikiriroa, ko Tūheitia. He hiku ika tōna, e waitohu ana kua huri ia hei taniwha.
