He Kara nā Te Kīngitanga: Te Kara a Te Arikinui Te Atairangikaahu

Ko te kara tēnei o te tuaono o ngā Kīngi Māori, te Kuīni Māori tuatahi, Dame Te Atairangikaahu. Kei Waahi Pā, i Rāhuipōkeka e tere ana. Ka mate a Dame Te Ata i te tau 2006. 

Ko te kara o te Kīngitanga, te kara o te Kīngi o te wā, ka tere ki tōna kāinga ōkawa ki Tūrangawaewae, Ngāruawāhia.  Ka haere i mua i a ia ka toro ana ia ki ngā marae e whakanui ana i te kaupapa o Te Kīngitanga.  Ka mate ana te Kīngi, ka nehua tahitia me ia te kara nei, ka hangaia ai he kara hōu mō te Kīngi hōu.  He tapu rawa te kara hōu, he mea manaaki e te whānau kaitiaki.
