Te whakaekenga o Te Ngutu-o-te-manu

Te whakaekenga o Te Ngutu-o-te-manu

I whakaaturia te whakairo nei ki roto i tētahi mōheni i Ingarangi i te marama o Noema 1868, me te tuhinga i te taha ‘He pakanga hou ki Niu Tīreni: te mauheretanga o tētahi pā tūwatawata Māori e te ope taua o Ingarangi’. I te tika tā te pepa korero mo te pakanga hou, ko te whakaeke a Tītokowaru me ana tāngata. Engari i tino hē ngā whakamārama e pā ana ki te mahi o muri mai, ko ‘te mauheretanga o tētahi pā tūwatawata Māori’, kei te pikitia nei. E whakaatu kē ana i Te Ngutu-o-te-manu, te papakāinga o Tītokowaru, i whakaekea e Rutene Kānara Thomas McDonnell. I tētahi kōkiri tō mua, o te 12 ki te 13 o Ākuhata, kāre i taea te pā e McDonnell. Waihoki i te 21 o Ākuhata, kāre hoki i taea te whakahinga nā te kino o te huarere. I te 7 o Hepetema 1868 ka ngana anō, heoi anō, i tēnei kōkiri whakamutunga mārama ana te kite atu i te wikitōria o Tītokowaru.
