Horo whenua ki Te Tai Rāwhiti

Horo whenua ki Te Tai Rāwhiti

I mua i te taenga mai o te tangata ki Aotearoa, i kākahutia te nuinga o Aotearoa ki te ngahere. I te taenga ake o te tangata, ka tahuna te ngahere, kia rite ki ēnei whenua kei Te Tai Rāwhiti, arā, kua kore te ngahere, kua tipuria kētia ki te korowa, ki te tarutaru. Kua horo te whenua me te oneone i ngā wāhi kāore i te tau ngā papanga whenua.
