Kōrero: Te iwi Māori

Tainui canoe

He nui ngā kōrero tuku iho a te Māori mō ngā waka taketake. Ko tētahi o ēnei waka ko Tainui, i tau tuatahi ki Te Moana-a-Toitehuatahi, kātahi ka neke ki Te Waitematā. Ka tōia te waka mā te tō waka e 200 mita te roa, kia taka ki roto i ngā wai o Manukau. Koinei te karakia i te wā tōia ai te waka. Ka ahu atu a Tainui i Manukau ki Kāwhia i te tonga, ka tāpukehia ki reira. Ka tohu ngā toka kei muri me waenganui ki te tauihu me te taurapa o te waka. Ko Te Whānau-ā-Apanui tēnei e taki ana te karakia i te tau 1943. Ko Rāpata Kīngi tō rātou kaitātaki.
