Kōrero: Te whānau puha

Taraia

Taraia

He whakairo tēnei o Taraia, te mokopuna a Kahungungu. Nā te kaha o Taraia ka toitū a Ngāti Kahungungu ki te takiwā o Te Matau-a-Māui. Nā Taraia te whakaaro kia huakina a Heipipi, he pā i tū pātata ki Bay View kei Te Matau-a-Māui. Nāna i whakahau ana toa kia mau i ngā kahu pākē pango kia rite te āhua ki te ūpokohue. I te awatea, ka karanga te tūtei o te pā, ‘Ūpokohue, ūpokohue’. Nā te kore mōhio ko Taraia me tana ope taua tērā, ka mīere mai te iwi rā i tō rātou pā, ā, ka patua e Taraia.
