Te Waiariki o Waikite

Te Waiariki o Waikite

I mua i te whanaketanga o ngā mahi tāpoi ki te takiwā o Rotorua, he rawa nui ōna ngāwhā ki a Te Arawa. Whakamahia ai rātou ngā ngāwhā hei horoi i o rātou kākahu, hei wai kaukau, hei tunu kai hoki. Whakamahia anō e rātou ngā whenua mahana hei whakatipu kūmara. Tīkina anō e rātou te kōkōwai ki te tā i te tae whero ki o rātou whakairo. He whakaahua tēnei o tētahi wahine Māori e tū ana i te taha o te waiariki o Waikite ki Whakarewarewa i te takiwā o te tau 1910.
