Karakia Hauhau

Karakia Hauhau

He tuhinga tēnei nā Rēweti Kōhere i whakauru ki Te Kōpara i te tau 1920 e pā ana ki te whakapono Pai Mārire me tā rātou aronga he Tiu, he Iharaira rātou. 'Kua kiia ake ra ahau he Hurai te Tiu, no te mea i runga i te ki a te Pikopo nona te hahi matua ka mea te Hauhau ko to ratou minita he tiu, ara he Hurai no te Hurai hoki te hahi matua'.

'I runga o te pou he puwhara ko te tunga tenei o te "minita" ara o te "Tiu" – ko te ingoa tenei o te Hurai ara he Jew. I te ata tonu ka piki te "tiu" ki te puwhara ka karanga ka whakaoho i te puni katoa, "Po po rini hoia, tiu!"’
