Te haki o te Whakaminenga

Te haki o te Whakaminenga

He paneikuini tēnei e whakaatu ana i ngā kōwhiringa mō te haki Māori ki Waitangi i te tau 1834. E toru ngā haki kei runga e rere ana, ā, e tohu ana te rangatira i tana mere pounamu ki te haki kei mua. Ko te whare kei te taha mauī te whare o te Rehireneti i a Te Pūhipi. Nāwai ka karangatia ko te Whare o te Tiriti. Kei te taha matau ko ngā kanohi o te Karauna kei runga i te ahurewa. E kīia ana ko te tangata e mau ana i te pepa ko Te Pūhipi tēnā, ā, nāna i whakamene mai i ngā rangatira kia kōwhiritiahe haki. Ko te āhua nei nō muri rawa mai ka tāia tēnei whakaahua; ā, he mea tauira pea a Te Pūhipi i tētahi whakaahua ōna i te kaumātuatanga, e āhua toru tekau ngā tau o Te Pūhipi i taua wā. Kei tōna mauī ko Kāpene George Lambert, ā, nōna te manuao kei waho kei te moana – nā tōna waka nei i tuku te waipū 21 i muri i te kōwhiringa o te haki.

I te tau i muri mai, ka hainatia e ngā rangatira te Whakaputanga.
