Kōrero: Tauranga Moana

‘Tū’ nā Kelcy Taratoa

‘Tū’ nā Kelcy Taratoa

Nā Kelcy Taratoa tēnei mahi toi. Nō te iwi o Ngāi Te Rangi ia, kei Te Whare Wānanga o Massey e mahi ana. E kōrero ana tana mahinga toi mō Te Heke o Ngāti Rangihouhiri, e rapu ana i tētahi türangawaewae mō rātou. Ka peia atu rātou i Ōpōtiki, ka huri, ā, kia tae ki Waihī. Ka mate a Te Rangihouhiri ki konei. Nō muri ka hurihia te ingoa o te iwi ki Ngāi Te Rangi, ka riro mai he whenua i Tauranga, te kāinga tūturu o tō rātou tipuna a Whaene. Ka wehi, ka mīharo a Kelcy mō te heke o Ngāi Te Rangi. Koina te take i tīkina e ia te kupu ‘Tū’ hei ingoa mō tana mahinga toi, nā tō rātou kaha kia tū motuhake ai rātou.
