Ko te whakapae a Hokianga, kua kaikaiwaiutia e te karauna te tiriti me te whakaputanga o te rangatiranga o Niu Tireni.

Neke atu i te rua tau kua pahure no te nohoanga tuatahi a te taraipiunara ki roto o Ngāpuhi, e taria tonu ana kia puta tana purongo mō Te Whakaputanga o te rangatiratanga O Niu Tireni me Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

He ropu tēnei i whakaturia ai hei whakarongo ki ngā nawe o ngā iwi engari kei te awangawanga ngā hapu kaikereme kei ngoikore enei nohoanga i te takaroa kia whai purongo ai rātou kamutu e pehi ana rātou e te karauna kia hāere tika ki te tepu whiriwhiri.

Hei tā Patu Hohepa, “Kia rongo ngā ngakau o te karauna me te ropu whakamana I te tiriti te mamae o Hokianga hohonu atu I te mamae o ētahi atu no te mea I timata mai te iwi Māori I konei I te wā o Kupe mai ra ano ā ka pa mai te mamae e hoki ana ki ngā tupuna.”
