Ko te whai a Ngāti Hikairo kia whakatau i a rātou take tiriti

Wepiha Te Kanawa

Tōmua i ngā raupatutanga i Waikato i te tau kotahi mano, e waru rau, ono tekau mā toru, he kāinga whai rawa a Kāwhia, i tuku rawa ki ngā pito maha puta noa i te ao, mā runga i ō rātou ake kaipuke.

I piua ngā mata o Te Taraipunara o Waitangi ki Kāwhia moana, ki Kāwhia tangata i te ra nei. A me wā rātou hītori hiranga nui.

Tae noa atu ki te tau tahi mano waru rau ono tekau i tuku a Ngāti Hikairo i āna rawa ki Poihakena me California, mā runga i ōna kaipuke tekau ma tahi, Engari na ngā ture a te Kawanatanga i raru ai.

He timatanga noaiho tēnei mā Ngāti Hikairo me a rātou take tiriti, a hei apopo tu ai a Ngāti Te Wehi me wā rātou nawe.
