Uruti is a settlement 34 km north-east of Waitara at the junction of the flood-prone Urutī and Mimi streams. Urutī was the first place in New Zealand to have a backblocks (rural) district nurse, in 1909. The 2003 movie The Last Samurai was filmed in the Urutī valley.h ttps://teara.govt.nz/en/taranaki-places/page-1
