Kōrero: Ngā iwi o Whanganui

Pou niu i Maraekōwhai

Pou niu i Maraekōwhai

Kei Maraekōwhai i te taha o te awa o Whanganui e tū ana ngā pou niu (ngā pou whai kawa o te Hauhau) e rua. Ko te tuatahi e whakaaturia nei ko Rongo Nui, i whakatūria e te iwi o Maraekōwhai i te tau 1864. Ka whakatōkia e tētahi tohunga te mauri o te riri ki roto i a ia. E toro ana ngā ringa o te pou ki ngā toa o te iwi. I rere anō ngā haki i runga i ngā pou nei, whakahaerehia ai hoki he karakia ki tōna take. Ka hipa ngā tau e rua, nō te mutunga o te pakanga, ka whakatūria he pou niu tuarua, ko Riri Kore, hei mauru i ngā riri o Rongo Nui.
