Te kaieke tohorā

Te kaieke tohorā

Ko Te kaieke tohorā tēnei, he whakamāoritanga nā Tīmoti Kāretu o te pukapuka a Witi Ihimaera i a The whale rider. Ka whakaatu te uwhi i a Paikea he puhi Māori e eke ana i tētahi tohorā. Ko te tipuna i a Paikea ko Kahutiaterangi, he ariki tamaroa. Ko te teina o Kahutiaterangi ko Ruatapu te tama a te murimanu, nā reira he iti nei ngā whakaaro mōna. Nā te pukuriri i tōna whakaitinga ka whakamātau a Ruatapu kia toremi a Paikea ki te moana – heoi ka whakarauoratia ia e te tohorā.
