Kōrero: Te ao tūroa

Puanga pōhutukawa

Puanga pōhutukawa

Muramura katoa te one nei i Te Tai Tokerau i ngā pua o te pohutukawa, he tohu mō te raumati me te Kirihimete. He whanaunga te guava, te feijoa me te eucalyptus ki te pohutukawa. Kitea whānuitia ai te pohutukawa ki te takutai o te raki o Te Ika-a-Māui, tōna kāinga tūturu. He pai ki ngā kaihanga waka Pākehā tōmua te pohutukawa hei rākau hanga waka, i te mea kei te pohutukawa āna ake piko, ā, kāore e kainga e te korotipa (sea worm). I tēnei wā, kua tipuria te pohutukawa ki ngā pito katoa o Aotearoa.
