Kōrero: Ngā heke i te Wai Nui

He hue nā te Māori

He hue nā te Māori

E rua ngā tipu nō Amerika ki te Tonga i kawea e ngā tāngata tōmua kia noho ki Aotearoa, ko te kūmara me te hue. Kainga ai e te Māori te hua o te hue i te raumati, mā te tunu ki roto umu. Ki te tīkaroa te puku o te hue, ka pai te hue pakari hei ipu pupuri wai, pupuri kai rānei. Nā te uaua o te tipu o te hue ki Te Wai Pounamu, ka whakamahia e ngā Māori o aua takiwa ngā momo rimurimu me ngā kiri rākau hei ipu. Whakamahia ai ngā hue hāpua hei taonga pūoro.
