Ko Pōhaturoa te toka kei te pokapū o Whakatāne. I ēnei rā ka tū a ia hei whakamaharatanga ki a rātou i hinga i te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao. Heoi, i ngā rā ki mua, he wāhi tapu tēnei ki a Ngāti Awa. Koinei te wāhi i tāngia ngā moko a ngā toa; ka tohia ngā kōhungahunga i te kōawa o Waiewe, kei kō paku atu o Pōhaturoa. Tekau mā rua ngā rangatira o Ngāti Awa i haina i te Tiriti o Waitangi ki konei i te 12 o Hune 1840.
