The words "...toka tū moana..." (a rock that stands alone in the ocean) implies steadfastness; the phrase is used amongst Māori when referring to those who have stood fast, when all others have gone.

There are four marae that occupy the lands of Ngāti Tuwharetoa lying directly beneath Te Kahui Maunga, Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu.

Of these four marae, three identify themselves as being Ngāti Hikairo ki Tongariro marae, the fourth being, Kakahi of Ngāti Manunui.
