Te puni o Boulcott, tau 1846

Te puni o Boulcott, tau 1846

E whakaatu ana te peita nei i te puni wawao o te pāmu o Boulcott ki te taha rāwhiti o te Awakairangi. I tū te pakanga ki reira i te 16 o Mei i te tau 1846 nō te whakahēnga o ngā Māori ki te noho a ngā tauhou Pākehā ki ngā whenua o Te Awakairangi. Whai muri i ētahi tohenga ka whakaekea te puni hōia, kua oti te whakatū i tētahi pāmu, e Tōpine Te Mamaku me tana taua o Whanganui. E whakaatu ana te pikitia i ngā rua kōiwi o ngā hōia o te retimana 58 i hinga ki taua pakanga. I ēnei rā he wāhanga tēnei nō te papa hahau pōro Hutt.
