Home-Searching for our Tupuna

Manaia and his love

There once was two chiefs named Manaia and Hautato. Manaia wanted Hautato's wife so he sent him to war and he began making a bridge from his pa on Mount Mania to Hautato's house in Marsden Point. When he arrived he took Hautato's wife named Pito for himself. He then took her back to his pa. When Hautato came home he was horrified so he went to destroy Manaia's pa. Manaia and Pito were running away from Hautato and his children when suddenly a bolt of lightning struck all five of them and they all turned to stone. By Payton
