Te hei tiki mō Ruatepupuke

He hei tiki hou tēnei mō Ruatepupuke, te tipuna nāna i mau mai i te whakairo ki Aotearoa. E pupuri ana ia i tētahi poupou. I hangaia tēnei tiki i te tau 2009 ki te kōiwi kau, ā, he angaanga pāua, he pihi nanekoti ngā rauemi hanga. Nā Stacy Gordine o Ngāti Porou tēnei i whakairo. He tipuna tūranga matua a Pine rāua ko Hōne Taiapa nō Gordine.
