Ngā manawa ā-whenua

Ngā manawa ā-whenua

E whakaatu ana te mahere whenua nei i ngā momo kōhatu i whakamahia e te Māori, ina rā, he iwi whakamahi kōhatu rātou. Ko ngā taonga nui ko te toki me te whao. I waihangahia ngā toki ō mua rawa i ngā kōhatu mārō pērā i te kara. Nāwai rā ka hangaia ngā toki i Te Ika-a-Māui mai i te kara me te ōnewa, me te pounamu ki Te Waipounamu. He whakahirahira te kōhatu ki ngā iwi noho tūtata – tae rawa ake mō ngā kōhatu hei hanga whao. He takoha nui te kōhatu I tuoputia.
