Kōrero: Ngā waka tere moana

Te awa o Waipāoa

Whakarongo mai ki tētahi wāhanga o te waiata a ‘Ka haramai a Pāoa’, e whakamārama ana i tētahi mahinga i te taenga mai o Horouta. Kei roto anō i te waiata ngā whakamārama mō te takenga mai o te awa o Waipāoa (i te whakaahua nei). I te tukinga o Horouta ki te tāhuna, ka tōia te waka ki uta, ka haere a Pāoa ki te kimi i te rākau tōtika hei tapitapi i te waka. E ai ki te kōrero i kite ia i te rākau tika ki Maungahaumi i te pokapū o Te Tai Rāwhiti. Heoi nā te pakupaku rawa o ngā awa ki te whakatere i ngā rākau ka mimi a ia, kia rere ngā awa o Waiōeka o Waikohu o Waipāoa, o Mōtū.
