Te tohunga me te tapu

Te tohunga me te tapu

I te ao Māori he mea nui whakaharahara te tapu. Ko ngā tohunga ka whakahaere i ngā tikanga e pā ana ki te tapu me te taiao. Noho rawa ai te tohunga i roto i te tapu. He whakaahua tēnei nā Horatio Robley i tā i te tau 1863 pea, he tohunga e whāngaitia ana e te tamaiti. Nā te nui o te tapu i runga i ētahi tohunga, ētahi rangatira, mā ētahi atu kē rātou hei whāngai ki te kai, kei waimeha te tapu i runga i a rātou.
