Kōrero: Te whānau tamariki

'Mana wahine'

'Mana wahine'

Ko ‘Mana wahine’ tēnei, he whakaahua nā Warren Pōhatu. Kei runga ko Papatūānuku, kei waenganui ko Ranginui. Ko Tāne tērā kei raro e whakatihē ana i te mauri ora ki a Hineahuone. I pokea mai ia i te one kurawaka o Papatūānuku, i puta ai te whakapapa o te ira wahine ki te ao mārama. E ai ki a Tāne, ka eke katoa ngā mahi a te tinana tangata, kua hoki anō tērā ki a Papatūānuku. Koinei te whakaaro a te Māori, arā, ka hua mai, ka oti anō hoki ngā tāngata katoa i tōna whenua.
