Kōrero: Te Tiriti o Waitangi

Kāwana William Hobson

Kāwana William Hobson

Ko te kāwana tuatahi o Aotearoa ko te āpiha tauā moana Piritānia ko William Hobson. I te tau 1839, e 46 ana tau, i kōwhiria ia hei māngai mō Piritānia (māngai takawaenga) i Aotearoa, ā, hei kāwana-rūtene o ngā takiwā o te motu e whakaaetia ana e ngāi Māori kia tukua i raro i te ture o Piritānia. I tana taenga mai i te Hānuere 1840, i puakina e ia ko ia te rūtene kāwana o ngā nōhanga mihinare kua whakatūngia kētia ki Pēwhairangi. I tonoa ngā rangatira Māori kia haere ki tētahi hui ki Waitangi ki te matapaki i te waitohutanga o tētahi tiriti me te Karauna o Piritānia.
