Te whakatūtū waewae, i te tau 1844

Kei roto i tēnei whakaahua a George French Angas ko te whakatūtū waewae ki Ōhinemutu. I tauiratia tēnei whakaahua i te tānga a Joseph Merrett. E whakatangatanga ana ngā toa i ā rātou rākau whawhai. Ko te mahi o ēnei tūmomo haka he whakakoi i te hautoa mō te pakanga. Heoi, i kiriweti katoa ngā kaimātaki Pākehā pērā i a Merrett ki te haka.
