Arowhenua Runaka

"Arowhenua is the principal Māori kainga of South Canterbury and lies between the junction of the Temuka and Opihi Rivers just 2kms south of Temuka." Arowhenua Runaka (Te Rūnanga o Arowhenua) sits within Ngāi Tahu rohe.

The back of the carving by Cliff Whiting, 'Aoraki and His Brothers' (1988), was painted by members of Arowhenua Runaka and tells Ngai Tahu stories of the West Coast.
