He pakiwaituhi tēnei nā William Blomfield e kīia ana ko 'Te wairua o ōna mātua', he mea whakaputa ki te wāhanga Kirihimete o te New Zealand Observer i te tau 1915. Ka whakaahua tēnei i te hautoa o te Ope Māori ki te pakanga i Karipori - me te whakapono a te Māori ko ngā tīpuna ngā kaiarataki i ngā uri whakaheke kei runga tonu i te mata o te whenua. Ko ngā iwi i piripono ki te Karauna, pērā i a Te Arawa, i a Ngāti Porou me Ngāpuhi ngā hunga tūao mō te pakanga. Ko ērā iwi pērā i a Taranaki, i a Tainui me Tūhoe i pakanga ki te Karauna, he tokoiti noa iho nga tūao.
