Whakatetonga, atu i Waikirikiri, Rūātoki

Kia tae ki te wāhanga tōmuri o te rau tau 1800, ka tīmata ētahi hapū ki te putaputa ki waho o te wao. Ka puta haere rātou ki ngā wāhi ka tata ki ngā tauhokohoko mō ngā taonga a te Pākehā pēnei i a Te Houhi i te uru, a Te Waimana me Rūātoki i te raki,. He tirohanga whakatetonga tēnei, atu i Waikirikiri i Rūātoki ki Te Urewera. E toru rā e whai ana i te awa mā runga hoiho, ka tae koe ki Ruatāhuna, te kōhanga o Ngāi Tuhoe. Koinei te pūnga o te iwi i ngā wā ka pā mai he raruraru, he mate rānei.
