He poupou whakanui i a Kupe

Ko Kupe tētahi o ngā kaihōpara rongonui rawa atu. Nāna ētahi wāhi o Te Whanganui-a-Tara i taunaha, pērā i ngā moutere o Matiu me Mākaro i tapaina ki āna tamāhine. Kei te taha matau o te tukutuku a Kupe, kei raro iho ko Matiu rāua ko Mākaro. Kei te taha mauī ko Māui, kei ōna rekereke ko Ngake rāua ko Whātaitai, ngā taniwha o Te Whanganui-a-Tara.
