Te whakatipu rīwai

Ko te pā nei e kīia ana nā te rangatira o Ngāpuhi, nā Tāmati Wāka Nene i whakatū ki Ōkaihau. Ko ngā pūare kei raro o ngā pakitara o te pā he pūare mo ngā ngutu pārera.  Kei muri e whakaatu ana ngā mahinga rīwai i whakatipua hei āwhina i ngā iwi ki te hoko ngutu pārera i te wā o ngā pakanga.
