Kōrero: Te kawa o te marae

Te wharenui me ngā atua

Te wharenui me ngā atua

E whakaatu ana tēnei hoahoa i te whanaungatanga kei waenganui i ngā atua me te wharenui. Ko te matua whaea ko Papatūānuku, e whakaritea ana ki te papa; ko te tuanui e whakaritea ana ki a Ranginui. Ko ngā pou kei waenganui i te papa me te tuanui e whakaatu ana i ngā pou e pā ana ki te pūrākau orokohanga o te ao, arā, te wehenga a Tāne i a Papatūānuku rāua ko Ranginui – nō konei ka tohia ki a ia te ingoa o Tāne-toko-rangi.
