Motutere (Castle Rock)

E 521 mita te teitei o tēnei puke kei te pae maunga o Moehau. Nā Ruamano i tapa te ingoa o Motutere. He uri a ia nō Tamatekapua, rangatira o Te Arawa. Ka ako ngā Māori kia haere mā ngā tuarā o ngā pae hiwi, kei mau i ngā ururua i ngā whāruarua. Hei te tōnga o te rā, tērā pea e rima kiromita anake ka pahure i te tangata i mua i te pōkia. Kīhai ngā karahiwi pēnei i a Motutere i haerea i aua wā.
