IT WAS WRONG TO NAME OUR WHENUA Otaraua Park DUE TO NEWLY FOUND RESEARCH

OTARAUA IS NOT THE ORIGNAL NAME OF TE PUPE O TU, TE HAU TE HORO, PAHIA, AND ERUINI TE MARAU HAPU.   

We humbly apologise to our Tupuna and thank our Koro for pointing out the mistake. 
It will need to be renamed through legislation.
