Te kaieke tohorā

Nā Tīmoti Kāretu te puka a Witi Ihimaera a Te kaieke tohorā i whakamāori. E pā ana tēnei pukapuka ki te kōrero mō te tipuna rongonui o te Tai Rāwhiti i a Paikea. Ko te ingoa ake o Paikea ko Kahutiaterangi. He ariki ia. Ko tana tungāne ko Ruatapu, he tūtūā. Ka whakamātau a Ruatapu ki te toremi i a Kahutiaterangi, engari ka karanga ia i ngā tohorā o te moana ka whakakauria ia ki uta. Kia whānau mai te tamaiti kātahi ka poua te mana me te tapu ki a ia.
