Ka kōrero a John Hohepa (nō Ngāti Kahungunu ki Te Whanganui-a-Orotū) mō te rū o te tau 1931. Ko te kaupapa o ana kōrero, ko te wāhi tapu o Te Whanganui-a-Orotū me tana taiohitanga ki reira.

I whānau mai ia i Ngāti Hineuru. Ka haere ia ki te kura ki Puketapu ā, 13 tau pea tana pakeke i te wā o te rū. Ka rū a Ahuriri i te tau 1931.

Hei tā Hohepa, tokorua noa iho ngā Māori i Nēpia i te wā o te rū, ko Weratā rāua ko Koti Wepa. Koirā ngā Māori i mate i te rū.

I muri i te rū ka āwhinatia ngā whānau e te Red Cross. Ka kawea ngā tūpāpaku ki a rātou. I moe ngā whānau i te whare o te Red Cross.

Kotahi wiki i muri i te rū ka noho te iwi ki te marae. E āwhina ana rātou i ngā tāngata e noho taumaha ana. Ka manaakitia ngā tauiwi i waenganui i a rātou, ā, e pā tonu ana ngā rū iti nei.

Ka kōrero a Hohepa i te āhuatanga o tana pakeketanga. I muri i ngā rū ka whiwhi a Hohepa i te pū, te hōiho me te kurī hoki, hei whakangau mīti. Ka whakangau poaka rā.

Ka kōrerohia tonutia te wāhi tapu o Te Whanganui-a-Orotū e Hohepa. Ka kōrero ia i te mamae e pā ana te wāhi tapu rā, te rāhui ki reira, me te whakapono o te Ringatū hoki.

I te mutunga o te hōtaka i waea atu tētahi wahine ki te pātai ki a rāua ko tana hoa kōrero.
