Te pōwhiri mō Pūkākī, i te tau 1997

E whakatau ana a Ngāti Whakaue i te taonga whakairo o Pūkākī ki Te Papa-i-Ouru ki Rotorua i te tau 1997. I tukuna a Pūkākī ki te Karauna i te tau 1877 i te waikanaetanga tērā ka wawaongia ngā whenua a Ngāti Whakaue i whakatūria ai te taone o Rotorua. Ko te nuinga o ngā whenua i ngaro, ā, noho momotu a Pūkākī ki roto o Tāmaki Paenga Hira. I runga i te whakaaetanga i te tau 1997, ka whakamanahia a Ngāti Whakaue hei kaitiaki mō Pūkākī. I takohatia anō a Pūkākī ki te Karauna, ā, mohoa noa nei kei roto ia i te Whare Kaunihera o Rotorua.
