Unveiling at Rotoiti

On Saturday 27 April, at Lake Rotoiti, a tombstone was unveiled.

It was in memory of the late Samuel Horouta Emery and his wife Kataraina Teurumahue, who had both been wellknown and loved by people in the Rotorua area.

Mass was said in Te Rangiunuora, the meeting house at Taurua Pa, Rotoiti. Waiata were sung by the Honokai Group, over three-quarters of whom are Pakeha women.

Following the service, everyone proceeded to the cemetery, half a mile from the pa, where the unveiling took place.
