Te pakanga kia whai reo te Māori

E ū tonu ana te Koromatua o Te Papaioea, a Grant Smith ki tana whakatau kia whai wāhi ngā kaikaunihera Māori ki te rūnanga nui. Ko tā Smith ki a Te Hotaka a Whakaata Māori, ki a Native Affairs, ko te painga kē ka noho te Māori i te tēpu. 

Nō te Oketopa tana kaunihera i pōti ai kia wātea te kaunihera ki ngā kaikaunihera Māori ā ngā kōwhiringa, a te tau rua mano tekau mā iwa, erangi i whakakorengia te haere e te kai noho i Te Papaioea, e Don Esslemont. I whakatakoto ia i tētahi pētihana, he whā mano te kaha. Nā wai rā, i hua mai he pōtitanga i whakaarahia e ngā kirirarau

Hei tā te Koromatua o Te Papaioea, kua tae te wā kia whai reo a Māori i te rūnanga nui. 

Ka tū te pōtitanga a te tekau mā iwa o ngā rā o Mei. He mea whakahere te māeatanga i te kaunihera.

Mātaki i te roanga atu, i a Natie Affairs āpōpō, ā te waru karaka ki runga i a whakaata Māori.
