‘Te whakaekenga o Tāmaki e Ngāti Paoa’

Nā Kennett Watkins te kōwaiwai nei o te whakaeke o Tāmaki e Ngāti Pāoa i te tau 1851. I te haerenga o ētahi o Ngāti Pāoa ki Tāmaki, nā te aha rā, ka rīriri rātou me ētahi pirihimana. Ka hoki rātou ki Hauraki ki te kohi i tētahi taua nui, ka hoki ki Tāmaki. Kua mōhio kē a Kawana Hōri Kerei mō tā rātou haerenga mai, e takatū ana āna hōia me te wakataua. Me tuku rā te taua o Ngāti Pāoa ka tika. Hāunga ngā raruraru, he hua pai tonu i puta; ka whakawhitia ētahi taonga ki a Kerei e Ngāti Pāoa mō ētahi kai hei whāngai i ngā iwi o Hauraki e mate kai ana.
