Kotuku Tibble talks about Iwirakau: Poutokomanawa Ngati Porou / Whanau Apanui, in Te Reo Maori then in English. "He toi whakairo he mana tangata!" Where there is art there is human dignity! He tipuna rangatira a Iwirakau no nga hapu o Ngati Porou ki Waiapu. Nana tonu I kawe mai I tenei taonga te toi whakairo ki roto o Waiapu I nga rautau e toru kua hipa. Ka moe ia ki a Rakaitemania ka pakaru mai nga uri ki tena paparinga ki tena paparinga kit e riu o Waiapu kit e take o Hikurangi. This pillar is a carving of the Ngati Porou ancestor iwikau from three centuries ago! Iwirakau is attributed as the ancestor who brought the art of carving to the Ngati Porou Waiapu area. He married Rakaitemania and his descendants now reside on both sides of the Waiapu river.
