Kōrero: Te Ao Mārama

Te pakanga a ngā manu

He kawau ēnei manu. Kei roto te kawau i te kōrero mō te pakanga a ngā manu. Tērā te wā ka tautohe a Kawau rāua ko Tīwaiwaka, ko hea ngā kai pai rawa atu, ko ngā kai o te tuawhenua, ko ngā kai o te takutai rānei. Nā te koi o te hinengaro o Tīwaiwaka ka hinga i a ia a Kawau. Nā tōna whakatakariri, ka karanga a Kawau ki ngā manu ki-tai kia raupatutia e rātou ngā rohe whenua ki-uta. Heoi, i te pātaitanga atu ki a Ruru hei āhea tīmata ai te pakanga ka whakahokia e tērā, ‘Āpōpō’. Hoki atu, hoki atu te kāhui manu rā ki te pātai i a Ruru hei āhea tīmata ai te pakanga; rite tonu tā Ruru urupare ai, ‘Āpōpō’. Kore he pakanga; ka noho ngā manu ki-tai ki ō rātou rohe i te takutai, ka noho ngā manu ki-uta ki ō rātou nohoanga i te whenua. Whakarongo ki a Ruka Broughton o Ngā Rauru.
