The Rock Warrior retold by Douglas
Many years ago there were three explorers who discovered the lakes of Rotorua .The people were living high on the mountian called Ngongotaha hundreds and hundreds of years ago.These people were fair skinned and they had good gardens and lots of food.
The Tipua people were very big giants and they were very bad people.The Tipua people wanted to take over the Ngongotaha people.They wanted to take their beautiful lakes and their lovely land away from the Patupaiarehe people
One day the Tipua war party marched through the Mamaku forest towards the Ngongotaha .The Patupaiarehe people became very scared.They asked their leader to save them with his magic spell.
Tongakohu lit a fire and began chanting his magic spell.Soon the Tipua giants started feeling tired and they decided to stop marching and take a rest.After a while the Tipua giants wanted to move but they could not because they had slowly turned into rocks.
Finally Tongakohu was able to save his people from the Tipua giants.
