Te kiore o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa (2 o 3)

Te kiore o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Nā ngā Māori tōmua te kiore o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa i mau ki Aotearoa. He maha ngā kai a tēnei kiore, pērā i te kākano, hua rākau, ngārara, mokomoko, hua manu, pīpī hoki. Kāore i kaha ngā tipu me ngā kararehe māori ki te whakataetae, ki te kaupare i ngā kaipatupatu pērā i te kiore. Nā ētahi atu momo kiore te kiore a Te Moananui-a-Kiwa i tutetute ki waho o Te Ika-a-Māui me Te Wai Pounamu. Ināianei, noho ai tēnei momo kiore ki ngā moutere ririki. I tangohia tēnei whakaahua i Hauturu (Little Barrier Island) i te tau 1979.
