Te kōhatu o Hatupatu

Te kōhatu o Hatupatu

Kei te taha o te huarahi matua i Ātiamuri te toka nei. Tērā te kōrero, i te arumia a Hatupatu e Kurangaituku ki te patu. Ka karakia a Hatupatu, ka huaki te toka rā, ka kuhu a ia ki roto huna ai. Tatū ki ēnei rā, ka tūtū ngā tāngata ki te whakauruwhenua. He tikanga tēnei ka pā ki ngā wāhi nōhia ai e te taniwha.
