Ko Kuini Irihapeti II i Tūrangawaewae, 1953

Kei Ngāruawāhia te marae o Tūrangawaewae, te pokapū o te Kīngitanga. I waihangatia te marae i ngā tekau tau o 1920 me 1930 i raro i ngā whakahaere a Te Puea Hērangi. Nō te 30 o Tīhema 1953, nō te taenga mai tuatahi o Kuini Irihapeti II ki Aotearoa, i pōwhiritia rāua ko te Tiuka o Ētinipara i Tūrangawaewae. Ka whakatauria kia toro atu ki te marae i taua ata tonu. He wā whakahoa tēnei i waenganui i te Karauna me te Kīngitanga. I roto i te whakaahua nei kei waenganui a Kuini Irihāpeti II rāua ko te Tiuka i a Kīngi Korokī rāua ko tana tamāhine. Ināianei e mōhiotia nei tana tamāhine ki te ingoa Te Arikinui Kahurangi Te Ātairangikaahu, te Kuini Māori.
