Te pūtōrino a Tūtānekai

Te pūtōrino a Tūtānekai

Nō te haerenga o te iwi o Mokoia ki tētahi hui ki Ōwhata ka mate kanehe a Hinemoa ki a Tūtānekai. Heoi i hunaia e rāua tō rāua aroha nā te mataku kei rīria e whānau. I te hokinga ki Mokoia, ka waihangahia e Tūtānekai he papa ki muri i te hiwi kei muri i te whare o tōna matua. Hei ngā pō whakatangi ai rāua ko tōna hoa a Tiki i o rāua pūtōrino; Karangahia ai te pūtorino a Tūtānekai ko Murirangaranga. Kei tērā taha o te wai, ka noho a Hinemoa ki runga i te toka a Iri Iri Kapua e whakarongo ana i te iere e whakatangihia e Tūtānekai. Heoi ka tūpato tana iwi ki tērā, ka tōia ngā waka ki ngā tumu ka herea, kia kore ai ia e hoe atu ki te moutere.
