Kōrero: Te tango whenua

Te hanga i te ara rerewe matua

Te hanga i te ara rerewe matua

Nō te 15 o Āperira i te tau 1885 ka keria te one tuatahi o te rerewe ara matua i te ripa tauārai o te Rohe Pōtae. Ko Rewi Maniapoto o Ngāti Maniapoto tērā kei muri i te huripara i waenganui e mau ana i te pōtae roa, kei te taha tana tamāhine a Te Kore. Kei muri i a Te Kore ko te Pirimia a Tā Rāpata Taute. He rā nui rawa atu tēnei, i te mea kātahi anō a Ngāti Maniapoto ka whakaae kia tuwhera ō rātou whenua ki te kāwanatanga. Whāia, ka riro te nui o ngā whenua i te Rohe Pōtae.
