E mea ana te iwi o Patuharakeke, ko te papa reihi hoiho o Ruakākā  he tino tauira o te mahi kuhu a te karauna kit e whakawehe ite iwi me ona whenua.

He whenua whai rawa tēnei I tangohia e te karauna hei mahi hiko. Engari neke atu I rua tekau tau iaianei no te hokotanga e te kawana I te rima tekau ma ono heketea ki te karapu reihi hoiho o Whangarei mo te rua rau mano taara noa iho nei.

Pru Kapua  of Roia ma Patuharakeke believes, “I te wa riro ia ratou i mohio ratou ko te panui nei hei tiaki i ngā pānga Māori ki tēnei whenua.”

He tono tēnei kei te tautokotia e te kaunihera o Whangarei pau te kaha, engari no ngā wiki tata nei ano ka horahia te tono a Patuharakeke kit e aroaro  o te ropu whakamana I te tiriti o Waitangi me te patai, ko hea kē te iwi kainga whakatuputupu ia ratou ano mehemea ka tuku i te toenga o o ratou whenua tupuna ma tetahi kaupapa kē.

E marama ana ki te iwi, he ara roa he ara uaua ma ratou kia whai i tēnei take ki tona mutunga.
