Ko Uenuku

Ko te tohu tēnei mō te atua o te āniwaniwa mō Uenuku. Koia tētahi o ngā taonga nui rawa o Tainui. Nō te takiwā pea o te tau 1400 i whakairongia mai ai a Uenuku, ka mutu he rite tonu ki ngā whakairo i Hawaii. I ngaro a Uenuku i tētahi o ngā pakanga i te tau 1780 pea, ā, ka huraina anō i te tau 1906 ki Ngāroto, e tūtata ana ki Te Awamutu. I noho te taonga nei ki roto i te whakakitenga o Te Māori i te tau 1984. Anei ia e mau ana i te korowai ki te whare taonga o Te Awamutu i te tau 1975.
