Category:Hinemihi meeting house

Hinemihi o te Ao Tawhito (Hinemihi of the ancient world), Hinemihi for short, is a meeting house of the Ngati Tuhourangi people who lived at Te Wairoa village, near Lake Tarawera. In June 1886 the volcano Mt Tarawera erupted and buried Te Wairoa village and the house under scoria and ash. The people were forced to leave the area and the house was sold and moved to England, where it now stands in Clandon Park, Surrey. The house has recently been restored. Hinemihi is named after a female ancestor of the tribe.
