Whakairo o Toi kei Whakatāne

Whakairo o Toi kei Whakatāne

He whakairo hōu tēnei mō Toi. Ko tōna ingoa i konei, ko Toitehuatahi. Nā ngā tauira o te whare wānanga o Awanuiarangi ki Whakatāne tēnei whakairo i tā. E hī ana ia i tētahi tohu mātauranga. Ko Toi tētahi o ngā tīpuna matua o ngā iwi o Te Ika-a-Māui, tae atu ki a Ngāti Awa. Heoi ko ngā kōrero a Ngāti Awa e kī ana, ka tau a Toi ki Aotearoa e 12 whakatipuranga i muri i a Tīwakawaka, te kaihōpara tuatahi ka noho ki Kākahoroa (Whakatāne).
