Te tāone o Rotorua

Te tāone o Rotorua

Ko te tāone o Rotorua tēnei, ko te roto me te moutere o Mokoia kei waenganui pū. Ko Ōhinemutu te ingoa whānui o te pokapū o te tāone, hei whakanui i te tamāhine a Īhenga, i patua ki reira i te taha o te roto. Ka whakatūria e Īhenga tōna toka kura ki te taha tonga o te roto hei whakamaharatanga mō tēnei; ka tapaina taua toka, ko Ōhinemutu. Whāia, ka noho tērā hei ingoa mō te takiwā. Nō te tekau tau atu i 1880 ka ngaro taua toka, e whakapaetia i wāwāhia hei hanga rori.
