Kōrero: He Whakaputanga

Ngā kaihaina i te whakaputanga: Te Wherowhero (1 o 2)

Ko te rangatira o Waikato ko Te Wherowhero e noho ana i te taha o tētahi poro rākau. Kei konei anō ko Te Waru (kei waenganui) rāua ko Te Pakaru (matau). Ko Te Wherowhero tētahi o ngā manukura i waho atu o te Tai Tokerau nāna i haina te Whakaputanga. Nāwai ka tū ia hei kīngi Māori tuatahi, ā, ka mōhiotia ia ko Pōtatau Te Wherowhero.
