Whakamaumaharatanga mō te riri ki Tuturau

Whakamaumaharatanga mō te riri ki Tuturau

Kia tae ki ngā tau pokapū o te tekau tau atu i 1830, kua rite tahi te kaha o Ngāi Tahu rāua ko Ngāti Toa, otirā, kāore tētahi taha i hinga i tētahi taha. Nō te tau 1836 te whakaekenga whakamutunga i ngā whenua o Ngāi Tahu. Nā Te Pūoho, rangatira o Ngāti Tama, he iwi haumi ki a Ngāti Toa, tana ope taua i ārahi mā Whakatū (Nelson), kia haere mā Te Tai Poutini (West Coast), whakawhiti atu i Tīoripātea (Haast Pass) kia kuhu ki Murihiku (Southland). Kia tae ki Tuturau, ka whakaekea ohoreretia tana taua e Ngāi Tahu; ka mate ia. He whakamaumaharatanga kei taua wāhi mō te riri whakamutunga nei.
