Kōrero: Ngā iwi tuatahi

‘Ka hī ake a Māui i tōna ika i te moana’

‘Ka hī ake a Māui i tōna ika i te moana’

Tokomaha ngā Pākehā i mīharo ki ngā pūrākau a te Māori. Ko tētahi ko te tohungatā Tiamana ko Wilhelm Dittmer. I tae mai a ia ki Aotearoa ki te kohikohi i ngā kōrero tuku iho a te Māori. I tāngia anōtia e ia ōna tuhituhi ki te waituhi. Nei rā a Māui e hī ana i tōna ika; kei te wehi ōna tuākana, e piri ana ki te waka. Kei te whiti te rā ki runga i a rātou.
