Kōrero: Nōnahea a Aotearoa nōhia tuatahitia ai?

Te Wairau

Te Wairau

Mōhiotia ai tēnei wāhi ko Te Wairau, te tutakitanga o te awa o Te Wairau me te moana. Koinei te kāinga o ngā tāngata patu moa i ō rātou rā, ā, kua kitea i ngā whaipara tangata, te nui o ngā kōiwi o te moa me ētahi kōiwi tangata. Ko te whakaaro, e 100 ki te 200 tau rānei i muri i te taenga o te tangata ki Aotearoa, ka ngaro te moa. I tua atu, he rite ngā taonga i kitea me ngā tūpāpaku i Te Wairau ki ngā taonga tērā ka kitea i ngā Kuki Airani, i ngā motu o Society me ngā motu o Marquesas i Poronihia ki te rāwhiti.
