Kōrero: Ngā heke i te Wai Nui

Ngā Motu Horomona

Ngā Motu Horomona

Anei ētahi o Ngā Motu Horomona. Kei te pito whakaterāwhiti o Poronihia Tata. E ai ki ngā taunakitanga, mōhio tonu ngā kaumoana o taua wā ki te arataki me te urungi ō rātou waka. Te āhua nei i mōhio tēnei iwi ki te whakawhiti mai i tētahi moutere ki tētahi atu, tae rawa ki ngā whakawhitinga ki ngā moutere kāore e kitea nā te tawhiti. Ko te kōrero, kāore i tae tūpono noa mai ngā tāngata mai Āhia ki Ngā Motu Horomona i te rāwhiti.
