Ngā tīpuna taketake o Ngāi Tahu

E whakaatu ana te whakapapa nei i te hekenga mai o Ngāi Tahu, mai i a Paikea, heke iho ki a Tahupōtiki. He tama a Paikea nā Uenuku; i noho ia ki Hawaiki. Nā te whakaiti a tōna matua i a ia, ka taka te whakaaro ki a Ruatapu, te tuakana o Paikea, ki te whakamate i ana teina. Ko Paikea anake te mea o ana teina, tuākana i ora; ko tana rerenga tērā ki Aotearoa mā runga tohorā. He kōrero tuku iho tēnei nā ngā iwi o Ngāi Tahu me Ngāti Porou.
