Kōrero: Te ao tūroa

Moa (2 o 3)

Moa

I te korenga ake o ētahi kararehe hei patu i a rātou, ka rerekē te whanake o ētahi o ngā manu ki Aotearoa; ka nui rawa atu te hanga o ngā manu kore rere pērā i te moa (Dinornithiformes) – ko te tikanga, ko ngā whakangote anake ka whanake kia pērā rawa te nui. Kai otaota ai rātou, ko ō rātou kōhanga i te papa tonu o te whenua. Kāore i kore i tumeke ngā Māori tōmua ki te hanga nui o te moa; e rua mita tō rātou hauroa. Ko te āhua nei, kāore i hipa te e 100–200 tau ka ngaro te moa.
