Te māra o ngā kōhatu e whitu i Rarotonga

E ai ki ngā pūkenga o te rau tau atu i 1900, kitea tuatahitia ai a Aotearoa e Ngā Waka e Whitu. Ka whakanuia tērā āhuatanga i tēnei māra kei Rarotonga. Ka whakapae ētahi i haere ngā waka ki Aotearoa mai i Rarotonga. He maha ngā ingoa kei Aotearoa ka rite ki ngā ingoa kei Rarotonga.
