He awakari ki Wairewa

Keria ai ēnei awakari ki te pito o Wairewa hei hopu i ngā tuna e heke ana ki te moana. Ka kōrero te pū kōrero rā a Teone (Hōne) Taare Tīkao o Ngāi Tahu mō tēnei tikanga ki Te Wai Pounamu:

‘Ka heke te tuna, e toru ngā tikanga hopu i te tini. Ko tētahi tikanga ko te keri awaawa mai i te awa mā ngā kirikiri tae rawa ki tētahi pārua. Hei ētahi wā ka tareka te hia mano tuna te kōutuutu.’
