Te mataika

Ko te mataika te tangata tuatahi kia patua i te pakanga. I te wā o ngā pakanga o Aotearoa, ka pā te rehu ki tētahi toa, ki a Metara, ā, ka kitea te ika me tana kanohi tonu. Ka mōhio tonu ia ka noho koia tonu hei mataika. Ka takamuri ia, engari ka riro koia tonu te tangata tuatahi i pūhia. Engari nā tōna maringanui ka ora tonu ia.
