Whare anga pāua

Whare anga pāua

Ka hau te rongo mō te kāinga o Fred rāua ko Myrtle Flutey i Awarua (Bluff) kei te pito tonga o Te Wai Pounamu, i kākahungia e rāua ki te anga pāua (Haliotis iris). Tērā tētahi rā, ka whakaaro a Myrtle ki te tāpiri anga pāua ki tētahi ataata i tō rāua kāinga. Ka rata rā a Fred ki tēnei. Ka hipa ngā tau, ka whakamaua haeretia he anga pāua ki te whare, kia kapi katoa a roto, a waho. He whare taonga tō rāua kāinga i ēnei rā. I tua atu, he kohinga taputapu anga pāua. I te wā o te momi hikareti, whakamahia ai e ngā tāngata o Aotearoa te anga pāua hei ipu pupuri i ā rātou hikareti; ko ngā anga pākarukaru, ka mahia hei whakakai, hei taonga tuku hoki. I ngā toi o te Māori, whakamahia ai ngā anga pāua hei karu i ā rātou whakairo.
