Hokianga Whakapau Karakia

Hokianga Whakapau Karakia

Ko te pūaha tēnei o te moana o Hokianga ki te Tai Tokerau. Ko te roanga ake o tōna ingoa ko Hokianga Whakapau Karakia. Ko ngā waka e rua i heke mai ki Aotearoa tae mai ki Hokianga ko Ngātokimatawhaorua tērā ko Nukutawhiti te tangata, ā, ko Māmari tērā ko Ruanui te tangata. Ko Nukutawhiti i tae tuatahi, heoi ka whanga ki a Ruanui hei taki i ngā karakia i te wā kotahi. Heoi nō te taenga o Ruanui ka whakahau i tana tohunga kia tākina ngā karakia kīhai i tatari mō Nukutawhiti. Ka whakamātau te tohunga rā kia whakapae i te tohorā ki uta, engari nā te whakatakariri ka tono a Nukutawhiti i tana tohunga kia whakahokia te tohorā ki waho i te whanga. Nāwai ka pau ngā karakia a te tohunga o Ruanui, ā, ka panaia rātou i Hokianga. Nā reira ka whakaingoatia taua wāhi ko Hokianga Whakapau Karakia.
