Hikurangi

Ko Hikurangi te maunga tapu o Ngāti Porou. E kī ana te kōrero, koinei te whenua tuatahi i puea ake i te hīnga ake a Māui i tana ika. E ai ki te Māori, kei runga tonu a Nukutaimemeha, te waka o Māui, i te tihi o Hikurangi. No te tekau tau atu i 1870 ka hokona e te kāwanatanga te maunga. Nō muri ka hurihia hei ngahere o te kāwanatanga. Nō te marama o Nōema o te tau 1990 ka haina e te Karauna me te iwi tētahi whakaritenga, ka whakahokia a Hikurangi me ngā heketea e 3,780 ki te iwi. I tēnei wā ko te iwi kei te whakahaere i te whenua me ngā tāngata ka hiahia kia piki i te maunga.
