Story: He Whakaputanga

Kororāreka

Kororāreka

He whakaahua tēnei o Kororāreka, e whakaatu ana i ngā whare Pākehā i te one me ngā waka; ko te nuinga he waka Māori. Ahakoa he kāinga Māori, ka nohoia e te Pākehā mai i te tīmatanga o te rautau 1800. I runga i te korenga o ngā ture, ka tapaina tēnei taone ko te ‘ruaiti o te Moananui-a-Kiwa’. Koinei te take ka tono te Māori ki a Peretānia mō ētahi tautoko. I te tau 1833 ka tukuna ko Te Pūhipi (James Busby) hei Rehireneti.
