Te wharenui o Ruatepupuke

Te wharenui o Ruatepupuke

E toru ngā whare whakairo kei tāwāhi, ā, ko Ruatepupuke II anake te whare whakairo kei Amerika. He mea hanga tēnei whare i ngā tau 1880-81 ki te kokoru o Tokomaru, ā, i whakakapi tēnei whare i te whare tuatahi i turakina i te tau 1828, kia kore ai e tānoanoatia e ngā taua marau. Kīhai anō i hanga houtia tērā whare. Nō ngā tau tōmua o te tekau tau 1890 kua karukaru katoa a Ruatepupuke II, ā, hokona atu ki te Whare Taonga o Field ki Chicago. Kotahi rautau i muri mai ka haere ngā tohunga whakairo o Ngāti Porou ki te tapitapi i a Ruatepupuke II, hei whare, hei marae ora hoki. I ēnei rā e kaha mahia ana te whare e ngā tāngata whenua o Amerika.
