Kua heke a Gordon Wright i tana tūranga Wātene Māori toru tekau tau te mau roa

  • Tāmaki Makaurau

Toru tekau tau e mahi ana mā ngā Wātene Māori, kua tata ki te wā e mutu ai a Gordon Wright i tana mahi.

Kotahi noa iho te mahi e toe ana, ko te whakaoti i te tohu mō tōna tari ki Tāmaki ki te tonga.

E whakakākahu ana mō te rā whakahirahira, whēoi e ora pai ana te tari o Tāmaki ki te tonga.

He kaiwawao whutupōro i mua i ngāna mahi i ngā Wātene Māori, i te kimi a Gordon i tētahi mahi rerekē hei ara hono ki ngā Māori o te hapori o Kaitaia.

Kāore anō a ia kia whāki atu ki te nuinga o ngāna kaimahi o ngā tau kua huri, whēoi kua whakatō i ngā uara ka mau tōnu ki tōna tira.

He kaiārahi i te tari o tāna takiwa, ā, kua tukuna kia kotahi te mahi hei whakaoti māna.

Ko te tuaiwa o Haratua te rā whakamutunga mā Gordon, kātahi ka hūnuku ki Ahitereiria ki te āwhina i ngā hapori iwi taketake.
