Kōrero: He Whakaputanga

Ko Pārena Te Tiari me tana tohu

Ko Pārena Te Tiari me tana tohu

I hangaia tēnei tohu mō Pārena Te Tiari. I kī rā ia koia te kīngi o Niu Tīreni. Nā te māharahara a te Rehireneti a Te Pūhipi ki tēnei pōhēhē a Te Tiari ka hui ia ki ngā rangatira o te Tai Tokerau kia haina i te Whakaputanga i te tau 1835. E whakaatu ana te tohu nei i te toa Māori, e mau ana i te taiaha me te pū. Kei runga ake ko te karauna. Ko tana kōrero, ‘Tenax, strength and harmony’.
