Tāhoe: He Pakiwaitara Mo Hinemoa Rāua Ko Tūtānekai

This traditional Māori story tells of two lovers forbidden to meet who find a way to be together. Hinemoa lives by Lake Rotorua and Tūtānekai on the island, Mokoia. Hinemoa falls in love when Tūtānekai plays the flute, but Hinemoa’s father considers him unsuitable. They vow to be together, and every night on the island, Tūtānekai plays his flute to guide Hinemoa to him. With no canoe, Hinemoa must swim the lake with mystical creatures in it to be with Tūtānekai.

This is the Māori language version of Swim.
