Te Pou o Tītokowaru

E whakaatu ana te pou whakairo nei kei te marae o Te Herenga Waka ki te Wānanga o Wikitōria ki roto o Pōneke i a Tītokowaru e pupuri ana i tētahi ngutu parera. Hei tohu whakanui tēnei i te toa o tēnei poropiti o Ngā Ruahine, ki te pakanga, otirā hei kairautaki. E rua ngā upoko kei raro i ōna waewae. Ko te mea kei te taha mauī ko te Kāwana, a Tā George Bowen, nāna i uta te kotahi mano pauna hei utu i te mauheretanga o Tītokowaru, me tētahi rima pauna mō ia tangata o te hunga tutū ka mauheretia. Hei whakautu i tā Bowen ka utaina e Tītokowaru te rua herengi me te 6 kapa ki runga i a Bowen. Ko te upoko kei te taha matau ko Meiha Gustavus von Tempsky, i whakamatea e Tītokowaru me ana tāngata i Te Ngutu-o-te-manu.
