Ngā pukapuka mō Ngā Pakanga o Aotearoa

Kei ngā uhi puka e whakaaturia ana ngā ingoa rerekē mō ngā pakanga i Aotearoa. Kei ia ingoa tōna māramatanga mō ngā pakanga. I taua wā ka mōhiotia ēnei riri ko ngā ‘riri Māori’, ko ‘ngā whakaara riri a ngā Māori’, ko ‘ngā raru Māori’ rānei. He ingoa katoa e whakaatu ana he tama ā-hara te Māori. Ko tō te Māori mō te Pākehā ko ‘Te riri Pākehā’, arā, i takea mai te riri i te kaiā whenua a te Pākehā. Nāwai ka hua ngā ingoa ‘Māori European wars’, te ‘Anglo-Māori wars’ rānei hei whakaatu i ngā iwi e rua i whai wāhi ki te pakanga nei. Engari arā anō ngā Māori i whawhai mō te kāwanatanga. Kāti ko ngā pakanga whenua anō tētahi o ngā pūtake o te whawhai. Engari ehara anake ko te whenua te take nui o ngā riri, pērā i te Tai Tokerau, he take kē tō taua riri, ehara i te whenua. Nā reira ka kīia ai ngā pakanga ko ngā pakanga o Niu Tīreni, hei ingoa tika rawa.
