Kupe rāua ko Kuramārōtini

Kupe rāua ko Kuramārōtini

Kei roto i te wharenui o Tāne-nui-a-rangi i te marae o Waipapa i Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki-makau-rau tēnei poupou e tū ana. Ko Kupe tēnei e mau ana i te hoe – he tohu ki ōna tohungatanga whakatere waka – kei konei anō te wheke o Muturangi. I tētahi rā ka haere a Kupe rātou ko tōna hoa a Hoturapa, ko Kuramārōtini te wahine a Hoturapa ki te hī i ngā wai kei waho o Hawaiki. Ka whakarerea e Kupe a Hoturapa ki te moana toremi ai, e riro ai e ia a Kuramārōtini. Kei te pokapū o te whakairo a Kuramārōtini e mau ana i ngā kāwai o te wheke.
