Story: Ngā iwi tuatahi

Hine-tua-hōanga

Hine-tua-hōanga

I whakamahia te hōanga hei waru, hei whakapīataata i te pounamu. E whakapono ana te iwi o Waitaha o Te Wai Pounamu ko ngā kōiwi ērā o tō rātou tipuna a Hine-tua-hōanga. Ka kōrero anō ngā iwi o Te Ika-a-Māui mōna. Kei tētahi kōawa e pātata ana ki Rotorua tētahi papa hōanga. He maha ngā tohu e whakaatu ana ki tōna whakamahinga mō ngā rau tau maha. E ai ki te kōrero ko Hine-tua-hōanga te ingoa o tēnei toka, ā, nā te tipuna tōmua o Te Arawa nā Īhenga i mau mai ki Aotearoa.
