Ngā Tohuwhenua Mai Te Rangi: A New Zealand Archeology in Aerial Photographs
Kakatarahae, near Ōwhakatoro, inland from Whakatāne, a pā very important in the traditions of Tūhoe
The pā was occupied by Ue-i-mua, elder brother of Tūhoe-pōtiki. It shows the typically massive defensive ditches and banks of pā in the Bay of Plenty. The defensive scarps outlined by shadow are 10 m high. The overall length of the main defended platform is about 150 m. It was constructed on easily excavated pumice gravels. Exterior terraces, probably for houses, are arranged down the ridge at middle left of the photograph. The view is to the north.
