Rāpata Wahawaha

Rāpata Wahawaha

I puta ngā rangatira nui mō Ngāti Porou i ngā pakanga ki ngā Hauhau. Ko Rāpata (Rōpata rānei) Wahawaha tētahi. Nā Gottfried Lindauer tēnei kōwaiwai nō te tau 1890. Nā Wahawaha i aukati te tomonga mai o te Kāwanatanga ki te raupatu i ngā whenua o Ngāti Porou. Kua kaumātuatia a Rāpata Wahawaha i tēnei kōwaiwai, ā, e mau ana ia i te rīpeka o Niu Tīreni (New Zealand Cross).
