Te whakairo mō Turi

Ko Turi tērā kei runga rawa. Ka heke ki a ia a Te Āwhiorangi, te toki pounamu a Tāne nāna i tapahi ngā uaua hono i a Ranginui me Papatūānuku. Ka whakaheke a Te Āwhiorangi i roto i ngā tātai ariki, taka rawa iho ki a Turi, rangatira o runga i a Aotea, te waka kawe i ngā tūpuna o Ngā Rauru me ētahi atu iwi ki Aotearoa. Ko Te Āwhiorangi te toki nāna a Aotea i auaha.
