Ngārara Huarau

ngarara huarau

PRICE: $20.00

Ngārara Huarau, a taniwha, travels from Hawke’s Bay to Wairarapa in search of his sister, Pari-kawhiti. As he journeys, his movement shapes the landscape, and his hunger leads him to eat birds, seals, seafood and people, causing terror as he goes.

Finally, the Wairarapa people of Ngāti Tara ask Tūpurupuru and his warriors to kill Ngārara Huarau. Tūpurupuru constructs a trap and the warriors set upon Ngārara Huarau, and he sinks into the Uwhiroa swamp. But did he die?
