Kōrero: Kai Māori

Te toromāhanga weka, i te tau 1846

Waiwai ana te waha o te Māori me te Pākehā ki te kai weka. E whakaatu ana tēnei whakaahua (nō te tau 1846) i a Kehu (nō Ngāti Tūmatakōkiri) e toromāhanga ana i tētahi weka ki te riu o Mātukituki ki Wānaka. Ka pupuhi manu, ka hopu ika, tuna hoki a Kehu mā ngā Pākehā kei muri i a ia.
