Ko Waikato rātou ko Hongi Hika, ko Thomas Kendall, i te tau 1820

E whakaatu ana tēnei whakaahua o te tau 1820 i a Waikato (taha mauī) i a Hongi Hika, me te mihinare, a Thomas Kendall. I tāia tēnei whakaahua i te haerenga ki Peretānia, ki te Whare Wānanga o Cambridge kia tuhia te pukapuka A grammar and vocabulary of the language of New Zealand. Ko tēnei te pukapuka whakapakoko i te reo Māori ki te pukapuka ā-tuhi. Nāwai ka whakamātau a Kendall kia whakaputaina tāna ake ētitatanga o te puka. Auare ake. Heoi anō ka noho ko tēnei pukapuka te pukapuka tuatahi kia āta tuhi i te reo Māori, nā reira he inati tēnei mai i ngā tau tuatahi o te ao mātauranga Māori.
