Kōrero: Te Arawa

Hatupatu me Kurangaituku

Hatupatu me Kurangaituku

I tōna taenga ki Aotearoa, ka noho a Hatupatu te toa o Te Arawa ki te moutere o Mokoia i Rotorua. Koia te pōtiki o tōna whānau, tokotoru ōna tuākana. Kāore rātou i tiaki i a ia. He nui te kōrero mōna me tana pakanga ki a Kurangaituku te tipua, me tana hūpeke i ngā waiariki. Ka ngana a Kurangaituku kia whai i a Hatupatu, heoi ka wera, ka mate ia ki ngā wai koropupū. Nā Hatupatu i whakaea te weranga o Te Arawa i tana patunga i a Raumati o Tauranga. Nā te tohunga nā Tēnā Waitere ēnei whakairo i auaha i te wā 1904–5.
