Kōrero: Te whakamārama reo ā-tuhi, ā-waha hoki

Ko Ruatara, i te tau 1814

Ko Ruatara, i te tau 1814

Ko te rangatira o Ngāpuhi a Ruatara tētahi o ngā kaiwhakamārama reo nui ki ngā mihinare tōmua i tae mai ki Aotearoa. I ako a Ruatara i te reo Pākehā nōna e mahi ana ki ngā kaipuke patu tohorā me ana haerenga ki Ingarangi me Poihākena. I te Hakihea i te tau 1814 ka whai atu a Samuel Marsden me ngā mihinare i a Ruatara ki tōna pā ki Rangihoua i Pēwhairangi. I reira ka tūtaki rātou ki tōna whānau. Ko Ruatara tonu pea te take i tū ai te whare mīhana tuatahi i Rangihoua.
