Ngā haki Ringatū: Te Wepu

He tānga tēnei o te kara pakanga o te poropiti i a Te Kooti, ko Te Wepu tōna ingoa. Ko tōna whāroa e 15.8 mita te roa; ko tōna teitei e 1.2 mita. Ka mutu he mea whatu te haki nei e ngā hihita o Greenmeadows ki Ahuriri, ā, i meatia hei koha mā Ngāti Kahungunu. I te tau 1868 ka riro i a Te Kooti, ā, nō te tau 1870 ka hopukina e Tawa. Nā Tawa i hoatu ki te whare taonga, ā, ka tapatapahia e rātou mō te hanga puruma.

Ko tētahi whakamārama mō te marama he tohu mō te ao hou, ā, ko te rīpeka whero he tohu mō te anahera i a Mikaere. Ko tētahi atu whakamārama ko te marama he tohu mō te kawenata tawhito, ā, ko te rīpeka he tohu mō te ao hou.
