Kāinga

He momo kāinga tawhito tēnei nō mua i ngā Pākehā. Ka noho ngā kāinga nei ki te takutai, e tata ana ki te moana, me ngā awa. He maunga tapu nō te iwi kāinga te maunga teitei rawa. Te nuinga o te wā, he wāhi nehunga mō ngā rangatira. He mea nui ake ki ngā iwi o Te Ika a Māui ngā māra, ā, whakatōngia ai ki ngā aupaki whakateraki kia whakawhitia e te rā. Nāwai ā, i nui haere ngā pā. Ka whakatūria ai ki ngā harapaki uaua te piki, kia kitea ai te moana, mā reira ū ai te hoariri.
