Te whakapapa o te kūmara

Ko te whakapapa tēnei o te kūmara ka heke mai i a Rongo-māui rāua ko Pani-tinaku. Kei ngā kōrero o te waiata oriori a Enoka Te Pakaru i a 'Pō! Pō!' tēnei whakapapa e kōrerotia ana:

Pō! Pō!
E tangi ana tama ki te kai māna!
Waiho me tiki ake ki te Pou-a-hao-kai
Hei ā mai te pakake ki uta rā
Hei waiū mō Tama!
Kia mauria mai e tō tipuna, e Uenuku! Whakarongo! Ko te kūmara ko Parinuiterā. Ka hikimata te tapuae o Tangaroa,
Ka whaimata te tapuwae o Tangaroa. Tangaroa! Ka haruru!
