Hikurangi Maunga

Hikurangi Maunga

Ko Hikurangi te maunga
Ko Waiapu te awa
Ko Ngāti Porou te iwi

Ka pā tēnei pepeha ki a Hikurangi, anei e whakaatu ana i te awatea. Koinei te maunga nui o te iwi nei o Te Tai Rāwhiti, i a Ngāti Porou, ā, ko Waiapu tōna awa nui. He mana nui tō ēnei tohu whenua ki te Māori. Ka whai tuakiri ā-iwi rātou i ō rātou maunga, awa rānei.
