Native Affairs - He āwangawanga urupā

Iulia Leilua

E mea ana tētahi kaimahi o mua o te urupa o Mangere ki Tāmaki Makaurau, i tanumia ētahi wāhanga tinana mētara nō ētahi tini tūpāpaku ki te rua koiwi o tētahi atu, engari käore anō tōna whānau kia mōhio, kia whakaae atu rānei.

E mea hoki ana te kaimahi o mua nei, kua hanumitia nga pungarehu o ētahi tūpāpaku kua tahuna, engari e ātete ana ngā kaiwhakahaere i te urupa i ēnei korero.

I körero motuhake te kaimahi ō mua a Edward Simpson ki a Native Affairs, ki tāna, i a ia e mahi ana i te whare tahu tūpāpakü a te urupa, he mea mōrikarika tāna i kite. I te wā i kikī te taramu, i tohutia rātou me whiu ngā mea ki roto i taua taramu, ki roto i tētahi rua koiwi.

Taihoa ake, i tatū mai te hunga tanu tūpāpaku ki taua rua koiwi, engari kāore te whānau i whakamōhiotia.

Kei i a Iulia Leilua ngā whakamahuki.
