Te wharenui o Te Whai-a-te-Motu

Te wharenui o Te Whai-a-te-Motu

I whakatuwheratia te wharenui nei kei Ruatāhuna ki roto o Te Urewera i te marama o Āperira 1888. I tapaina ko Te Whai-a-te-Motu (ka whāia i te motu) hei maumaharatanga mo te wā i whāia a Te Kooti e ngā ope taua o te kāwanatanga ki roto o Te Urewera. E rua ngā nohonga a Te Kooti ki te rapu whakaruruhau i tēnei rohe - i te tīmatanga o 1869 ka oma atu ia i te pā kaha o Ngātapa, ka tae anō i te tau 1870 me te 1871 i mua i tana oma atu ki te Rohe Pōtae o te Kīngi i te tīmatanga o te tau 1872, ki te rapu whakaruruhau.
