Mahere o te pā o Kaiapoi

Mahere o te pā o Kaiapoi

I te wā o tōna whakaekenga e Ngāti Toa, ko Kaiapoi te pā nui rawa atu o Ngāi Tahu. E whakaatu ana te mahere nei, he repo kei ngā taha e toru, ka takoto he maioro ki te taha huaki. He nui ngā pū a Ngāti Toa i tō rātou whakaekenga. I te tau 1831-32, ka whakapaetia te pā e Ngāti Toa mō tētahi wā roa; i te weranga o āna tūwatawata, ka horo te pā.
