My Cousin told me what it was she said it's to protect the top of the roof and the Marae. She told me the whole story about it when we were going to bed I was asking her questions about what some words meant. Then she told me what happened with the Tekoteko on the top of the roof, I couldn't understand some words. When she finished talking. we fell asleep, in the morning me and my cousin walking into the kitchen and I was staring at the Tekoteko and it was all red. Then the bell rings and all the Family went into the Marae Church. Me and my Cousin went for a swim in the creek because we didn't want to go into Church because it takes for ages and it is boring.
