Ureia

Ko Ureia i tēnei whakairo kei te wharenui a Hotunui. I ngā wā o mua ka tū te whare nei ki Hauraki; i ēnei rā kei te whare pupuri taonga o Tāmaki-makau-rau. He nui te mana o Ureia ki te moana o Tīkapa. He marakihau te ingoa o te momo whakairo – inā te hanga ngārara o te tinana me te arero awaawa.
