Te āhuarangi me te whenua (1 o 2)

Te āhuarangi me te whenua

Mā te ua me te marangai ka puta he āniwaniwa pēnei i tēnei kei te takiwā o Whaingaroa; he pērā anō mō te tipu o te tarutaru. Huia katoatia ai ngā riu o Waikato, o Waipā, o Piako, o Waihou, ko te ‘manawa kākāriki’ o Waikato, e 500,000 heketea te rahi. Koinei tētahi o ngā rohe mōmona rawa o Aotearoa. Nā te mōmona o ngā oneone me te pai o te āhuarangi ka makuru te tipu o te tarutaru. He kahikatea te rākau tūhāhā rā – he mahuetanga o tētahi ngahere nui rawa atu.
