Native Affairs - Te mahi keri ki Puhipuhi

Iulia Leilua

He tāone iti a Puhipuhi i Te Taitokerau he rua tekau kiromita te tawhiti atu i Whangarei i timata ngā mahi keri mo te konuoi ki reira i te tau 1892.  

Ahakoa he tekau ma rima tone noaiho te nui o te konuoi i keria ki reira i te wā o te pakanga tuarua o te ao e pāngia tonutia ana te taiao e ngā hua kino o aua mahi. 

I tēnei wā kua huri te aro a ngā kaikeri ki te koura me hiriwa otira e kaha whakanuia ana e te Kāwanatanga me te Kaunihera ā rohe aua hua ki ngā kamupene nui o te ao. Mēna ka hau mai ngā Kamupene nui e whakapaetia ana he pūtea nui he tūranga mahi hoki ka hau mai ki tā rātou taha. Heoi kei reira tonu te āwangawanga mo te taiao o Puhipuhi, i hāere a Iulia Leilua ki te kōrero tahi me te hāpori e pā ana ki ēnei mahi.
