Mate ā-moa

I te taenga o te Pākehā ki Aotearoa, i te mōrearea te noho a te huia (Heteralocha acutirostris), e toe ana ki ngā ika whenua i te tonga o Te Ika-a-Māui anake. He rite ōna huruhuru ki ngā huruhuru pango-kikorangi o te tūī, engari anō te kōtore o te huia, i manakotia nuitia e te Māori. Nāwai ā, ka hiahia te iwi Pākehā ki ngā huruhuru o tēnei manu; whāia, kia tae ki te tekau tau atu i 1920 kua ngaro ā-moa te huia. I tua atu i te tangata me āna mahi, kainga ai te huia e te kiore, te ngeru me te toriura.
