The second poukai of the year 2013 will take place at Kokohinau Marae this Saturday 19 January.

King Tuheitia will leave his Waikato district for the gathering of people from this area who are supporting the ideals of the Poukai and meet face to face.

One person who has hands-on knowledge of the Poukai events is Danny Hona who says the karakia will start proceedings for the raising of the poukai flag and then breakfast later in the morning the arrival of Tainui and then the hakari.

Kei te tu te poukai tuarua o te tau rua mano ngahuru ma toru ki te marae o Kokohinau a tenei Rahoroi tekau ma iwa o Kohitatea. Hoi ano kei te puta mai a Kingi Tuheitia i tona rohe i Waikato ki te whakahuihui i nga iwi no tenei takiwa e tautoko ana i te āhuatanga o te poukai, otira kia aro kanohi ki te kanohi. Tetahi tangata e whakarite ana i nga wahanga o te poukai ko Danny Hona e mohio nei a ia ki te timatanga o te poukai i te ata o tenei Rahoroi
