Kōrero: Te whānau tamariki

Māui me tōna koroua

Māui me tōna koroua

E kawea mai ana a Māui ki uta i tōna koroua i a Tama-nui-ki-te-rangi. Kei roto tonu ia i ngā makawe o tōna whāea. Tērā te kōrero ka whānau kahu mai a Māui, ā, ka tākaia iho e Taranga ki tōna tikitiki – ka hua te ingoa, ko Māui-tikitiki-a-Taranga. Mēnā ka whānau kahu tētahi tamaiti, ka huri tōna wairua ki te hae tangata (atua kahukahu). Ka kitea i te āhuatanga ki tōna whānautanga mai he aha ai ka eke i a Māui ngā mahinga hautipua katoa.
