Te waka tea o Tarawera

Te waka tea o Tarawera

E whakaatu ana te tānga nei nā Kennett Watkins i te waka wairua i kitea e tere ana i runga o Tarawera moana i te 31 o Mei, 1886. Ahakoa kua tāpirihia e ia ngā kapua me te aho marama, i tū tēnei āhuatanga i te awatea tonu, ā, mārakerake te kitea atu e te hunga tūruhi Pākehā, me ngā Māori tae atu ki a Kaiārahi Sophia. E whakaarotia ana he tohu aituā tēnei. 10 ngā rā i muri mai, ka hū a Tarawera, ka mate te matatini, ka orotāhia te pokapū tāpoi.
