'Ko hine te iwaiwa, ko hine korako, ko rona whakamau tai' (1 o 3)

'Ko hine te iwaiwa, ko hine korako, ko rona whakamau tai'

Etauawhi ana a Hineteiwaiwa i te wahine whakawhānau. E rākaitia ana ia ki te tiki, ka mutu he taonga tēnei i homaitia e Tāne hei āwhina i tōna mana whakatipu. Kei muri ko Hine-korako rāua ko Rona-whakamau-tai. He hononga tonu tō ēnei māreikura ki te whānau tamariki.

He mea tuku tonu e  Robyn Kahukiwa.
