Te whakamaroke tuna

Te whakamaroke tuna

E rua ngā momo tuna o Aotearoa. I mua i te wā o te noho Pākehā, ko te tuna tētahi o ngā tino kai a te Māori. Ina te mahi o te tuna kei Wairewa (Lake Forsyth) me Waihora (Lake Ellesmere) i Te Wai Pounamu. Ahakoa ngā pānga kino mai o te whanaketanga o te whenua, ka mahi tuna tonu te Māori. Kei te whakamaroke tuna i te whakaahua nei. I tangohia tēnei whakaahua i te tau 1948 i te pūaha o Wairewa. Kei te haere tonu te mahi tuna tae rawa ki ēnei rā.
