Kōrero: Whakairo

He pū whakairo

Tē mōhiotia nā wai i whakairo te kakau wōnati o tēnei tūpara. Ko te pū, he mea hanga i Ingarangi i te tau 1860 pea. Nō te taetaetanga mai o ngā hangarau hou ki Aotearoa, ka tahuri te Māori ki te whakairo i ētahi o ngā wāhanga rākau o ā rātou taonga hou. Mā te whakaniko i ā rātou taonga, ka whai mana nui ake ki te kaipupuri.
