Hine-nui-o-te-pāua

Ko te mere pounamu tēnei ko Hine-nui-o-te-pāua. Ko Te Ngare te tamāhine a te rangatira o Te Kawerau a Kahikatearoa. Ka moe ia ki te rangatira o Ngāti Pāoa. Hei pupuri i tēnei hononga ka kohaina e Ngāti Pāoa tēnei mere ki a ia. Nā tētahi kanga ka whakarere a Te Ngare i a Ngāti Pāoa ā+E23 ka whakahokia e ia te mere ki a rātou. Nāwai ka tuku te iwi i te mere nei ki te kāwana hei whakatau i te rangimārie.
