Kōrero: Tauranga Moana

Ko Ururangi nō Tauranga

Ko Ururangi nō Tauranga

Nā James Tapiata ēnei whakairo e whitu i auaha. Tū ai rātou ki te huarahi matua o te tāone o Tauranga; he tohu ki te kaha o ngā tāngata whenua kia pupuri i tō rātou mana ki tēnei rohe o Aotearoa e tino kaha rawa ana tōna tipu. Ka kōrero ngā whakairo mō Matariki. Ko Ururangi tēnei, tētahi o te huinga o Matariki. He tohu a Ururangi mō ngā hono i waenganui i ngā iwi o Tauranga me Waikato, me ngā mea o Waikato i tū ki ngā pakanga ki Pukehinahina me Te Ranga. Nō Tainui te momo o ngā whakairo; kitea ai te awa o Waikato e rere ana.
