Te tīpao – he whiu

Te tīpao – he whiu

Hei tā Ngāti Porou ko te tīpao te kupu mō ngā mea ka whiua i roto i ngā tākaro maka. Kei tēnei whakaturanga tētahi tīpao hei maka kōhatu. He mea mahi ki te rākau tītoki, ka herea he aho ki runga. Ko ētahi momo o te tīpao ko te kōtaha, ko te maka (ko ēnei e rua hei tākaro mā ngā tamariki, kāpā mō te pakanga). Ko tā te tamaiti tīpao he rīwai kē kei roto, kaua te kōhatu, he rākau noa te hanganga.
