Ko Houmaitawhiti

Ko Houmaitawhiti

Ko te tipuna o Te Arawa tēnei ko Houmaitawhiti. I patua te kurī a Houmaitawhiti, arā, a Pōtaka Tawhiti e tētahi anō rangatira, ko Uenuku te ingoa. Nā te tānoa a taua kurī i ana parapara ka patua e Uenuku te kurī rā kia mate. Kātahi ka tūria ngā pakanga a ngā tama a Houmaitawhiti, arā, a Tamatekapua me Whakatūria, ki a Uenuku. I runga i tēnei take ka wehe a Tamatekapua me Te Arawa i Hawaiki.
