Te oriori o Ahuahukiterangi

Ko Tokomaru tēnei ki te rohe o Te Tai Rāwhiti. Kei roto tēnei wāhi i te oriori a te tipuna o te Tai Rāwhiti i a Hinekitawhiti mō tana mokopuna mō Ahuahukiterangi i noho rawa ai ki te takiwā o Ariuru ki Tokomaru. I roto i te waiata ka karanga te kuia i te mokopuna kia karangatia ōna kārangaranga maha mai i Tokomaru huri noa ki Raukōkore ki Te Moana-a-Toitehuatahi. Ko tēnei tētahi whiti o te waiata:

Mau e ki atu, ‘Na te Au-o-Mawake’.
Kia tangi mai ai o tuakana koka,
‘I haramai ra koe nga kauanga i kaituri, na!
I haramai ra koe nga uru karaka i te Ariuru,’
Nahau te mau mai i nga taonga o Wharawhara,
Hai tohu ra mohou, kai haengia koe,
Ko te Paekuru ki to taringa, ko Waikanae ki to ringa,
Hai taputapu mohou, e hine, e!
