Kōrero: Ngā iwi tuatahi

Te kohu i Te Urewera

Te kohu i Te Urewera

Ahakoa whakaheke ai ngā whakapapa a te Māori i ngā waka o Hawaiki, arā anō ngā hononga taketake ki tēnei whenua ake. Nā Te Pēhi i tapa te ingoa ‘ngā tamariki o te kohu’ ki runga te iwi o Tuhoe. E kī ana te kōrero nā Hine-pūkohu-rangi a Te Maunga i whakawai kia heke iho i ngā rangi ki te whenua. Nā rāua ko Pōtiki, te tipuna o Ngāi Tūhoe. Nā reira ka whānau te iwi o Tūhoe mai i ōna maunga me te kohu e kākahu ana i a rātou.
