Ngā taunahatanga a Kupe

He kaihōpara nui a Kupe nō Te Moananui-a-Kiwa. Ko Hokianga te wāhi i hoki a Kupe ki Hawaiki mā runga i tōna waka a Matawhaorua. Nō konei hua mai ai te ingoa o Te Hokianga-a-Kupe. Hei whakatika mō tōna hokinga, ka tunua e tōna iwi he hāngī ki tātahi. Heoi nō te hukeatanga, i te mata ngā kai; waihoki ka kohukohungia rātou, ka panaia rātou e Kupe. Tapaina ai te wāhi nei ko Kohukohu. Ka whakarere e Kupe tana taniwha a Ārai-te-uru hei toka tū moana ki konei. I makaia e ia tana tama a Tuputupuwhenua ki roto i tētahi puna, hei taniwha kaitiaki. Nā Kupe anō ētahi atu toka tū, wāhi hoki i whakaingoa: ko Ngā Kurī-a-Kupe tērā, ko Pori Here tērā, ko Ākiha (he taniwha kei te pūaha o te whanga) hoki tērā.
