Hatupatu and the Brothers
Once there was a boy named Hatupatu. He and his brothers named Wiri, Piri, Pita and Anaru , were the bad people in the story.
One day the bad brothers went to go to the waka and they found the waka had sunk to the bottom of the sea.
The brothers were going to go fishing in the t waka so they had to dive down and bring it back up but it was too hard. So the next day the brothers were trying to get their but a whale came and grabbed it and took it away.
That meant the brother had to go hunting instead. Hatupatu was at home and he was not allowed to go with his brothers. He was sad and the next morning he snuck out and followed them.
He caught up with his brothers and they were mad at him. They put him into a special hut and left him and they went hunting.
Hatupatu was hungry so he ate all their food and then made the camp a mess. When the brothers came back , they were angry.
Hatupatu told them that a robber had come along and had messed up all the campsite and had stolen all the food.
When the brothers went hunting the next day, he did it again. This time they didn’t believe him and so they chased him into the forest and he didn’t come back.
In the forest he came upon a cave , and he hid in the cave. The cave belonged to the Bird Woman and before long she returned . Hatupatu tried to escape but a door came down and trapped him. So one of her birds went to get the bird woman.
So the bird woman chased him around the place until they came to a hot mud pool. Hatupatu jumped over the mud pool, so it was not Hatupatu that got cooked , it was the bird woman because she fell in..
Hatupatu went back to his family and his brothers got grounded for a week for not looking after him.
