Kōrero: Ngā kaitito waiata

Ko Kingi Tāwhiao

Ko Kingi Tāwhiao

Anei te Kīngi Māori a Tāwhiao i te tau 1882, e 22 tau atu i tōna pikinga ki te tūranga o tōna matua. Waihoki ki te nuinga o ngā kaiārahi Māori, he kaitito rongonui hoki a Tāwhiao. I te tekau tau 1860 ka titoa e ia tēnei waiata hei whakaū i te mana whenua.

Ka ngapu te whenua
Ka haere ngā tāngata ki whea?
E Ruaimoko
Purutia!
Tāwhia!
Kia ita!
A-a-a ita!
Kia mau, kia mau!
Ko ‘Pō! Pō!’
