Kōrero: Te tāhere manu

Tumu

Karangatia ai tēnei momo tāhere e Ngāti Raukawa he tumu. He māmā atu te hanga i te tumu tērā i te mutu me te pewa. Ka whakairia te mutu ki runga i ngā rākau iti me ngā tipu. Ka whakamaua te tāhere ki ngā peka e rua o te rākau iti rā, he taura e hono ana ki te kaihopu e huna ana i tētahi wāhi tata. Tau ana he manu, ka titia e te kaihopu te taura ki te one. Kī ana ngā tāhere katoa ka tangohia ngā manu, ka whakahokia te tumu ki tōna nohoanga.
