Te Kauwae Runga

Auturoa Edition.

ARA: NGA KORERO TATAI O NEHE A NGA RUANUKU O TE WHARE WAANANGA O TE TAIRAAWHITI.

Including The Teachings of Te Matorohanga and Nepia Pohuhu.

Te Kauwae Runga.

The Upper Jaw of Knowledge.

“The elders say there is no one universal system of teaching Te Kauwae Runga. Each Iwi has its own Tohunga, its own college, and its own methods. Their word is thus:" 

“Hold steadfastly to our teaching, leave out of consideration that of other tribes. Let their descendants adhere to their teaching and you to ours, so that if you be in error, it is we your relatives who declare it unto you and you are not responsible; and if you are in the right it is we who shall leave to you this valuable property and should have credit thereof.”

“Noreira!”

So begins Ngaa Koorerorero Oo Te Kauwae Runga.
