Kōrero: Kākahu Māori

Te heu i ngā makawe o ngā mauhere, i te tau 1827 pea

Tiro whakatata mai ki ngā taipitopito o tēnei tānga i tāia i te tau 1827 pea. Kei Pēwhairangi tēnei kāinga, ā, ko te rangatira o tēnei kāinga he wahine, ko Tōrere te ingoa, e noho ana i raro i tōna parani. Kātahi tonu ka hoki mai tana iwi i ngā marau ki roto o iwi kē. E rua ngā ūpoko hoariri kua whakatakotoria ki mua i a Tōrere. Ko te ūpoko te wāhanga tapu rawa o te tinana. Kei te taha mauī, e heua ana ngā makawe o ētahi atu mauhere.
