Kōrero: Ngāti Porou

Ko Māui i runga i a Hikurangi

Ko Māui i runga i a Hikurangi

Nā Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Porou i whakarite ngā whakairo nui whakaharahara kei runga i a Hikurangi, hei whakanui i te e 150 tau mai i te hainatanga o te Tiriti o Waitangi. Kōrero ai ngā whakairo mō Māui te tipuna o Ngāti Porou, nāna tana ika i hī ake i te moana nui. Ko Hikurangi te pito whenua tuatahi ka puea ake i te wai; koia te maunga tapu o Ngāti Porou. Ko te whakairo o Māui tētahi o ngā whakairo e iwa kei runga i a Hikurangi, nā ngā ākonga o Toihoukura i whao i raro i ngā whakahaere a Derek Llardelli.
