Te tūtanga o Hongi Hika

Te tūtanga o Hongi Hika

Kei te 1827 pikitia nei a Augustus Earle e whakaatu ana i te rangatira nō Ngāpuhi ā Hongi Hika (kei waenganui ia e mau raukura hui ki ōna makawe ana me tētahi korowai itiiti te tae) kei tētahi hui tata ki Kororāreka. I poua ia ki tētahi kariri ngutu pārera i tētahi pakanga ana kātahi ka whara. Ko te mea kē kāore ia i te mau i ōna kākahu ārai, nā Kīngi Hōri IV i koha ki a ia, ngā kākahu ārai i pare atu i ngā kariri ngutu pārera. Nā te kino o te kaiākiko o Hongi ka mate ia i te tau o muri mai.
