Hōparatia ngā weu, ngā tāera whatu me ngā tikanga o te whatu kākahu.

Hanganga kākahu

I whātoro atu ngā ringarehe ki tōna taiao, kei reira ngā rawa hanga kākahu, pērā i te harakeke, ngā huruhuru manu, ngā kiri kīrehe. Nā ngā tīpuna ngā momo tāera i whakawhanake e whatu ai ēnei rawa hei kākahu.

Ngā āhuatanga o te whatu kākahu

Ko tā te Māori hanga kākahu ko te whatu. He mea urutau te tikanga whatu hei whakamarumaru i a rātou. Arā atu ngā tikanga auaha pērā i te tāniko. Nā te ringarehe anō te taura i whiri, ngā whāriki me ngā kete i raranga.
