Te māra o ngā kōhatu e whitu, ki Rarotonga

Te māra o ngā kōhatu e whitu, ki Rarotonga

I ngā tau tōmua o te rau tau 1900 ka raweketia ngā kōrero tuku iho mō ngā waka kia puta ki waho ko te ariā o te Heke Nui o ngā waka tokowhitu (a Tākitimu, Tokomaru, Aotea, Tainui, Te Arawa,Mataatua, Kurahaupō). I auahatia tēnei māra kei Rarotonga ki ngā kōhatu e whitu, hei tohu mō ngā waka e whitu nei.
