Carved poles at Ōtorohanga

E rua ngā pou whakairo i te tāone o Ōtorohanga, e tohu ana ki ngā rangatira nui o Ngāti Maniapoto. Kei te pou tuatahi, mai i runga, ko Maniapoto te tupuna; ko Taonui te tohunga; ko Te Wētini te toa; ko Wahanui te korokoro tūī. Kei te pou tuarua, mai i runga ki raro, ko Tūhoro - iti te kupu nui te kōrero; ko Te Kanawa te kī nei mōna “Te Kanawa, ki te ringaringa nui hei whāwhā’; ko Te Hauāuru he pūmau ki a Pōtatau; ko Te Haupōkia i haina i Te Tiriti o Waitangi, i hoko muka hoki ki Ahitereiria.
