Te tunu hua karaka, i te tau 1908 (2 o 2)

Te tunu hua karaka, i te tau 1908

E tunu hua karaka ana ēnei wāhine ki te marae o Whakarongotai ki Waikanae. Kei roto i te kano o te hua te paihana e kīia ana ko te karakin, ā, me āta tunu rawa hei patu i te paitini. Whai muri i te tunu, ka rumakina ki te waimāori mō ētahi wiki kia puta katoa mai ngā paitini. Ko te nuinga o te hunga ka mate i te kai karaka he tamariki, ka poapoaina atu e te tae o ōna hua pīataata. Ko tōna mate he hūkiki, ā, he wā ka tanumia te tinana o te tūroro ki roto i te onepū, taea noatia tōna kauae, kia kore ai ōna kōiwi e whati.
