Tūmatauenga

Ko Tūmatauenga te atua o te pakanga, o te tangata hoki. Nā tōna pukuriri ki te wehenga a Rangi rāua ko Papa, ka whakatika a Tāwhirimātea ki te patu i ōna tungāne. He maha ngā mea i patua e ia, engari ko Tūmatauenga tōna hoa rite. Mai anō i tērā wā e haere tonu ana te pakanga a Tāwhirimātea (ngā hau) ki a Tūmatauenga (tangata).
