Story: Kaitiakitanga

Huia

Nō te matenga rawa atu o te manu nei te huia, ka taupokina te hapū o Ngāti Huia i te kapua pōuri. Nō te tau 1888 tāia e John Gerrard Keulemans tēnei pikitia o ētahi huia tokorua, ko tētahi he tame, ko tētahi he uha – ko te uha te manu roa atu ōna ngutu. He rite te mahi a te Māori te whakarite i a ia ki ngā tipu me ngā kararehe kei te matemate atu.
