Te pā o Pukerangiora

Te pā o Pukerangiora

Kei runga i te awa o Waitara, e 8 kiromita mai i te tāone o Waitara, ko te pā o Pukerangiora. I te tau 1831 ka whakapaetia tēnei pā e Waikato i a rātou e whawhai ana ki a Te Āti Awa. I te tau 1861 ka whakamaru anō a Te Āti Awa ki roto ki tēnei pā i te whakaekenga mai o te Pākehā, ā, ka nōhia te pā o raro iho, a Te Ārei. Ka whakatata haere a Meiha Tianara Thomas Pratt i te pā mā te kari awarua kia tata ai mō ana pahū. Heoi, i mua i tōna otinga ka whakatūria te ranga awatea.
