Ngā poro tōtara 12

He papa hoki ēnei poro tōtara nō te matakite a Te Mātenga Tāmati o Ngāti Kahungunu. I te tau 1894 ka whakapuaki ia i te whakakitenga o te Tāpenakara o Rāwiri. Ka tuaina ngā rākau i uta ake o Wairoa, ka mutu hai tohu ngā poro rākau mō ngā tamariki a Hakopa i te Kawenata Tawhito. Nā te waipuke i kawe i ngā poro rākau atu i te poro kotahi ki te wāhi i taunahatia e Te Mātenga. E kī ana te kōrero e tiaki ana ngā poro tōtara kia tae mai te tangata tika ki te hanga i te tāpenakara.
