Kōrero: Ngā waka tere moana

Ngātokimatawhaorua canoe, 1940

Ngātokimatawhaorua, 1940

Nāwai rā, ka tāraia houhia a Matawhaorua te waka o Kupe, ka tapaina, ko Ngātokimatawhaorua. I ū ngātahi te waka nei me Māmari ki Hokianga. I tāraia tēnei waka e whakaaturia nei i te tau 1940 hei whakahōnore i te waka taketake. I tāraia te waka i runga i ngā whakahau a Te Puea Hērangi. I whakarewatia i te hui whakanui i te rau tau o te Tiriti o Waitangi.
