Te wharenui o Rongopai

Te wharenui o Rongopai

E tū ana te wharenui o Rongopai ki te marae tonu o Rongopai, kei Waituhi i Tūranganui-a-Kiwa. I whakatūhorotia te whare i te tau 1888, e ngā pononga taitāhae a Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Tūruki, kia pai ai te noho hei marae pōhiri mōna. I mawehe mai rātou i ngā tikanga whakairo, ā, ka taea kē ngā whakairoiro o roto, ā, he mea kapo atu ngā ariā i te ao Pākehā. I te tekau tau 2000 ka noho tēnei whare hei tohu i ngā toi Māori o te wā.
