This term we have been learning a lot about the story of Tamarereti. Teingoa retold the story in his own words. Well done Teingoa.
A long time ago there was a village next to a lake. When it was very dark people didn't go outside because they could not see. But there was a boy called Tamarereti who was a brave warrior. One morning he was so hungry. He went fishing and got lots of fish. Then the wind went away so he just went to sleep and waited for the wind to come back. Later the wind came back and took Tamarereti to a different island. It was getting dark so he ate the fish and after he was finished he did not know where he was and he knew
the taniwha would come and eat him.
He took some shiny pebbles and threw them in the sky so he could see. When he was back at home he went to sleep. Then he woke up when it was morning because someone was at the door. It was Ranginui. He came and said to Tamarereti “thank you for lighting up the sky.” The end.
