Ruhia Pōrutu e mau ana i te kaitaka

Ko Ruhia Pōrutu te hunaonga o te rangatira o Te Āti Awa ki te pokapū o Te Whanganui-a-Tara, arā, a Rīrā Pōrutu. Kei konei ia e mau ana i tōna kaitaka paepaeroa, he mea huri kōaro kia kitea ngā tāniko. I te tau 1840 e waihanga ana a Riria me tana iwi i te whare mō tētahi roia nō te Kamupene Niu Tīreni. I tōna waihangatanga e noho tapu ana tōna whare. Nāwai ka haramai te tamaiti nei a Thomas McKenzie, ā, ka tomokia pokerehutia te whare rā. Nō konei ka takahia e ia te tapu o te whare. Tata tonu ka paoa e te rangatira tōna māhunga ki tōna mere, heoi anō, ka tāuwhi a Ruhia i tana korowai ki runga i te tamaiti rā.
