Te puni o Ōmata

Te puni o Ōmata

Ka tāngia tēnei pikitia o te puni wawao o Ōmata ētahi tau i muri i te tīmatanga o te pakanga i Taranaki. Kāore noa iho e tawhiti te puni nei i te tāone tonu o Nū Paremata, ā, ko tōna take he wawao i ngā whānau Pākehā tauhou o te takiwā. I te Māehe o 1860 ka whakatata haere a Ngāti Ruanui ki Nū Paremata ā, ka hangā te pā o Kaipopo, ki runga ake i te puni wawao. Kātahi ka tuku a Rūtene Kānara Charles Gold i te ope tānga hei whakatū i te pā me te whakaeke i te pā o ngā Māori. I te tauītanga o ngā Māori ka hopukina te pā.
