He māripi

Whakamahia ai te niho mangō hei māripi. He toa patu taniwha a Ao-kehu i ōna rā. Tērā tētahi wā, ka whakaawaawatia e ia tētahi poro rākau e kuhu ai ia ki roto. Kātahi ka haramai a Tūtaeporoporo te taniwha o te awa o Whanganui, ka horomia te poro rākau rā. Kātahi ka tahuri a Ao-kehu ki te haehae i te puku o Tūtaeporoporo kia mate rawa.
