Te poupou o Tamatekapua

Ko tēnei poupou ko Tamatekapua, te ariki o te waka o Te Arawa. Kei runga ia i ana poutoti. E ai ki te kōrero, i a rātou i Hawaiki ka whakamahia e ia ngā poutoti ki te whānako huarākau. Ko te take tērā i tahuri ai rātou ki te kimi kāinga hou. Ko tēnei whakairo i ahu mai anō i te wharenui o Tamatekapua tonu i hangā i te tau 1878. Ko ētahi o ngā whakairo nō ētahi whare tawhito kē atu. E tū ana tēnei whaare whakairo i te marae o Te Papaiōuru, i Ōhinemutu. Nō muri nō te tau 1939 ka tukua ki raro, ā, ka hangā houtia. Nō te tau 1943 ka whakatuwheratia te whare hou.
