Kōrero: Ngā riri mau pū

Te ngutu pārera a Hongi Hika

Nā Hongi Hika te ngutu pārera nei. He tino toa ia ki ngā pakanga mau pū.  Ko te tuhinga kōrero kei runga i te ngutu pārera e kī ana,”He ngutu pārera kua kohaina ki te rangatira Māori ki a Hongi, e George IV i te tau 1820;  i muri i whakamahia e Hone Heke i ngā pakanga ki te hoariri nō Ingarangi”. Ki te Māori ko te rākau patu nei he ngutu pārera, i te mea he rite te āhua o te hama ki te ngutu o te pārera. Kāre e kore i kawea mai e Hongi te pū nei ki Aotearoa i te wā i tae mai anō te rahi o ngā pū ngutu pārera mā runga kaipuke ana mai i Poihākena i te tau 1821.
