‘He tirohanga ki te whanga kōhuru

I te tau 1642 ka tau ngā waka e rua o Abel Tasman, a Heemskerck me Zeehaen ki Te Tai Tapu. Kīhai i pai te pānga tuatahi a te Pākehā me te Māori. Nō te pōhēhē me te kore whai māramatanga, ka patua ētahi o ngā kauhoe a Tasman. Nō muri mōhiotia ai te takiwā nei ko Murderers’ Bay.
