Kōrero: Whakairo

Te wharenui o Te Hau-ki-Tūranga

I whakatūria te whare whakairo o Te Hau-ki-Tūranga i te tekau tau 1840 ki Ōrākaiapu, he pā kei tūtata mai o Tūranganui-a-Kiwa. Ko te kaiwhakairo matua, ko Raharuhi Rukupō, ā, i whaongia te whare mā tōna tuakana, te rangatira o Rongowhakaata, a Tāmati Waaka Māngere. He maitai ngā whao i tāraia ai te whare nei, ā, ko tēnei whare tawhito rawa e ora ana i ēnei rā. I te tau 1867 ka raupatungia e te Minita Māori e J. C. Richmond, ā, ka mauria ngā whakairo ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Kātahi ka whakamahia hei wāhi hui mā te Rōpū Mātai Whakaaroaro. I te tekau tau 1930 ka hanga houtia e te Whare Taonga o Aotearoa i raro i te awe o Āpirana Ngata. Nāwai, ka kitea e te Rōpū Whakamana i te Tiriti o Waitangi, he mea whānako kē te whare. I whakaae a Te Papa Tongarewa mō te tau 2017 whakahokia atu ai ki a Rongowhakaata.
