This is the story, told in te reo Maori, of the arrival of Ngatoroirangi in Aotearoa and his exploration of the landscape and subduing of kaitiaki, such as the guardian of Tarawera, Tamaohoi; the guardian of water on Kaingaroa, Torepatutai; and the King of the Patupaiarehe, fairy... folk, Ririo. This adventure story traces the places Ngatoroirangi travelled through, such as Waimahunga, the large spring where he conducted his cleansing ceremonies, and Te Wharua o Ngatoroirangi, where his footprints are still visible in the land today.Read more
