Ngā tohu whenua o Tarawera

Ngā tohu whenua o Tarawera

I te pahūtanga o Tarawera i ngā haora moata o te 10 o Hune 1886, e moe ana ngā tūruhi ki ngā hōtera o Te Wairoa, ā okioki ana ngā iwi i roto i o rātou whare. Tōpū, neke atu i te 100 ngā tāngata i mate i te hūnga o Tarawera. Koinei te hūnga nui ake atu i te taenga mai o te Pākehā. E kitea tonu ana i te whakaahua nei te kino o te hūnga i runga i te mata o te whenua, e 17 tau i muri o te pahūtanga. Kei runga e whakaatuhia ana te maunga o Tarawera, ko Rotomahana me ngā piere o Waimangu. Nō ngā tau tōmua o te tau rua mano, kua tipu anō mai ngā uru rākau.
