Best known as ‘Guide Sophia’ (but sometimes also as Te Paea or Tepaea), Hinerangi was the principal tourist guide of the famous Pink and White Terraces at Lake Rotomahana. Following their destruction during the Mt Tarawera eruption of 1886, she became a tour guide at nearby Whakarewarewa, Rotorua. Her vision of the ghostly waka foretold the eruption of Mount Tarawera.
