Tuhoe Te Uru Taumatua
Na Toi raua ko Potiki te whenua
Na Tuhoe te mana me te rangatiratanga
Ngai Tuhoe are descended from Tuhoe Potiki, the great grandson of Toroa (commander of Mataatua waka), and grandson of Taneatua (a spiritual guide on Mataatua waka).
The Tuhoe rohe includes areas from inland Whakatane, Waikaremoana and encompasses much of Te Urewera. Scattered within this expansive region of bush are the communities of Tuhoe.
