Kōrero: Tapa whenua

Ka tapa a Māui i te whenua

Ka tapa a Māui i te whenua

Nā Māui tana ika i hī ake i te takere o te moana. Whāia, ka hua te maha o ngā ingoa wāhi. Ka tapaina te motu ki te raki (North Island) ko te Ika-a-Māui; ka tapaina te motu ki te tonga (Te Wai Pounamu / South Island) ko Te Waka-a-Māui, ka tapaina te motu ki te pito tonga rawa (Rakiura / Stewart Island)) ko Te Punga-a-Māui. Kei tēnā moutere, kei tēnā moutere i Te Moananui-a-Kiwa ngā kōrero mō Māui nāna te whenua i hī ake pēnei i te ika.
