Te Whetū-o-Te Rangi

Nō te rā Kirihimete o te tau 1915 ka tuwhera te whare nei. Nā Ngāti Pūkenga i hanga hei whakanui i te tama a Pūkenga. E rua ngā whare nui o Ngāti Pūkenga, ko tēnei me Te Kouorēhua, kei te riu o Manaia i Moehau.

He maha ngā tau kātahi anō ka oti te whare. I te tuatahi, kāore ōna whakairo. I te tau 1989 ka oti ngā whakairo. Ko te momo o Mataatua ngā whakairo, inarā, i ahu mai a Pūkenga i reira. Anei te whakapapa.
