He tipua tēnei kei runga i te wharenui nei. He rahi ngā whakairo pēnei kei ngā wharenui o Te Tai Rāwhiti. Ko te tipua tēnei e kōrerohia ana i roto i te pūrākau mō Uenuku rātou ko ana tama a Paikea rāua ko Ruatapu. I ora a Paikea i te parekura i mate atu ai te tokomaha. Nā te tohorā a Paikea i whakaora.
