He waiata tangi mō Pāpaka Te Naeroa

He waiata tangi tēnei mō tētahi mahuri tōtara. Kei te waiata tawhito (i whakaputaina ki Ngā mōteatea, me ngā hakirara a ngā Māori) i hopukina e Hōri Kerei i te tau 1853, ko te rārangi kōrero, 'Ko te tama i aitia e tērā wahine, e tērā tangata'. Hāunga i tōna whakaputanga tuarua ki Ngā moteatea i te tekau tau 1920, ka whakarerekēhia e Tā Apirana Ngata ngā kupu ki 'Te tangata i awhitia e tērā wahine, e tērā tangata'.
