Whakaotirangi

He whakairo tēnei kei Te Tokanganui-a-noho i Te Kūiti. Kei te taha matau ko Whakaotirangi e pupuri ana ki tana kete. Ko ngā iwi o Te Arawa, o Tainui ka kōrero mō tēnei tipuna nāna te kūmara i mau ki Aotearoa. E ai ki ngā iwi o Te Arawa ko ‘te kete-rokiroki-a-Whakaotirangi’; ki ngā iwi o Tainui ko ‘te kete-rukuruku-a-Whakaotirangi’.
