Te Reo Maori (E Ma)

No te rima o nga ra o Tihema i tuhituhia atu aki ki Akarana 24



E hoa, e te Kawana, tenei ano taku korero atu ki a koe. Ehara i te pa noa taku ringaringa ki te kaipuke o Hakaraia. He take nui ano ko te wahine a toku tuakana, kaore au i wawai, i noho pai marie au, i tukua ano taku kaiwhakarite a Tohi, ki te tono i tetahi utu korero rawa atu ki to ratou hoiho kia homai, kaore i homai. Ka he tera.

Na, katahi ka tangohia ko to ratou kainga, ka rua nga mea kaore i homai, heoi ano, ka wha nga ra i korero ai, a, ka ngenge nga waewae, a, me pehea te wakaaro ki muri iho, katahi ka arohia e u ko Harata, ka ngohia.

Te Reo Maori (E Ma)

No Ngati Moko te kaipuke, no te iwi i tangohia ai te wahine na, katahi ka mahara i o ratou whakaaro, ka whakahokia mai te wahine me te hoihoi hei utu. Na katahi ka whakahokia atu ta ratou kaipuke ki a ratou. Kaore ia na koe i kite i te korero o Tohi i roto i te pukapuka na.

Na, e hoa, kei whakarongo mai iana koe ki to ratou korero. Heoi ano kua oti, otira tena au te haere atu na, ki kona taua korero ai. Heoi ano.
