Te tukituki i te aruhe, i te tau 1842

Te tukituki i te aruhe, i te tau 1842

Me āta tukituki rawa te aruhe kia puta rā anō  tōna reka. He umanga nui te paopao aruhe i ngā wā o mua; arā, i mua i te taenga mai o tauiwi me ōna kai hōu. Kāti, he whakaahua tēnei o te pā o Pipitea ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara. E kī ana te tohunga tā, ‘Kei te taha matau e whakangāwari ana tēnei Māori i te aruhe. He reka tonu ki a rātou tēnei kai.’ Kei roto i te whare i muri i a ia e tunu kai ana te wahine i te taha o tana ahi.
