He korowai tuku iho

Ahakoa te aurara o te Pākehā me te Māori o Te Whanganui-a-Tara ki runga i ngā whenua o tētahi atu, i mahi tahi tonu rātou i ētahi wā. He tohu te korowai nei mō te ngākaunui i waenganui i ngā iwi e rua nei. I te wā e hanga ana te iwi o te pā o Pipitea i tētahi whare ka kuhuna pokanoatia te whare e tētahi taitama, ko Thomas Wilmor McKenzie te ingoa. Nā tōna pērā ka takahia e ia ngā ture tapu o te waihanga whare. Nā whai anō ka hiko te rangatira o Ngāti Hāmua a Te Rīrā Pōrutu ki tana mere ki te kuru i a Thomas. Engari ka whiua e Rūhia Pōrutu tana korowai ki runga i te tama, ka tonoa kia tukuna te tāhae kia ora. E whakahau ana ia i te mana tūturu o te wahine i tana whakaoranga i tētahi tangata. Nō muri mai ka noho hoa pūmau ngā whānau Pōrutu me McKenzie, ā, i te tau 1947 ka takohahia te korowai ki te whare pupuri taonga ā-motu.
