Kōrero: Taniwha

Haumapuhia

Haumapuhia

Ko Haumapuhia te taniwha rongonui kei Waikaremoana. E rua ōna taha ka whakaatatia i tēnei mahi toi. Kei te taha mauī o te kanohi ko Haumapuhia te kōtiro. I hurihia ia hei taniwha e tōna matua (te taha matau o te kanohi). Ka kitea ngā kokorutanga o Waikaremoana i puta mai nā ana korikori kia puta ai ki te moana. Nā Shane Evans o Ngāi Tahu tēnei mahi toi i tā i te wā i a ia i te kāreti o Queen Charlotte.
