In 1993 the Local History Staff of Tauranga District Libraries (as it was called then) compiled a booklet highlighting the prominent women in the Tauranga Moana area; Mana Wahine. This photograph of Ripene Wharekawa is from one of the mini biographies in the booklet: Ripene Wharekawa (Ngāi Te Rangi) 1866-1968 - Bay of Plenty Times (28 June 1966).
