Ngā taunahatanga a Kupe ki Te Moana o Raukawa

He wā anō ka noho a Kupe me tōna iwi ki Kawakawa kei te takutai moana o Te Wairarapa. I hua mai te ingoa nei i tētahi pare kawakawa i whiria e tana tamāhine. Ka tū ia ki tētahi toka kia mātaki i Te Tapuae-o-Uenuku (te maunga tiketike rawa ki te pae maunga o Kaikōura, ki Te Wai Pounamu); ko te ingoa o taua toka ko Mātakitaki. Nāwai rā ka hūnuku a Kupe ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Kei te pūaha o Te Tangihanga-o-Kupe (Barretts Reef). Ka tapaina pērātia e ia taua wāhi nō te mokemoke o te papaki o ngā tai.
