Kōrero: Whakairo

He heru paraoa

He heru paraoa

I whakairotia mai tēnei heru i te kōiwi kotahi. Kei tētahi taha he manaia, ā, he kanohi pāua tōna. Ahakoa i hangaia tēnei heru i te takiwā o te tau 1800, e whakamahi ana te Māori i aua rauemi tonu i ngā wā i tae tuatahi mai te Māori ki Aotearoa. He kaha ake ēnei rauemi i te rākau, ā, ko ēnei ētahi o ngā taonga tawhito rawa o te whakairo Māori.
