Te moko o Te Rauparaha

Te moko o Te Rauparaha

I whakamahi a Te Rauparaha o Ngāti Toa i tōna moko hei waituhi kirimana; pērā i te hoko mō Te Koko-o-Kupe ki Wairau. He rerekē te moko o Te Rauparaha, inā hoki rā kāore i oti. Ka whakaatu tēnei pikitia i te wāhanga o tōna moko kāore i oti (kei te taha matau).
