He whānau e ngaki kūmara ana

He whānau e ngaki kūmara ana

I ngā wā o mua neke atu i te 20 ki te 30 te tokomaha o te whānau Māori. I te nuinga o te wā ka rāhuitia he kāinga ake mō te whānau i roto i te papakāinga, ā, ka tukuna he wāhanga o te māra kūmara ki a rātou. Kei te whakaahua nei tētahi whānau e ngaki ana i tō rātou māra kūmara. Kei muri te tokorua e keri ana i te one me ō rāua kō, ko ngā wāhine kei te keri i te one me ētahi karaone. He tokorua kei muri e kawe ana i ngā kete kūmara e iri ana i tētahi pou. Kei te rumaki kūmara tētahi o ngā wāhine.
