Kōrero: Te whakatere waka

Waka ndrua nō Whītī (1 o 2)

Waka ndrua nō Whītī

He nunui te ndrua. Kitea ai i te whakaahua nei, he nui ake te ama matua i te ama tuarua. Ko te mahi a te ama nui he kawe i ngā utanga me ngā tāngata, ko te mahi a te ama paku, he whakatau i te waka ki roto i te wai. Ka whakamahia ngā waka ndrua nunui i ngā putanga ki te moana nui, ā, ahakoa kīhai i taea e ia ngā utanga taumaha o te waka hourua, he pai ake te ndrua ki te tohu.
