Kōrero: Te whakamārama reo ā-tuhi, ā-waha hoki

Ko Dicky Barrett

Ko Dicky Barrett

I whānau mai a Richard (Dicky) Barrett ki Ingarangi. Nā ana mahi tauhokohoko i Te Moananui-a-Kiwa, me tana moe ki roto i a Te Āti Awa,  ka ako ia i te reo Māori. I te tau 1839 ka mahi ia mō te Kamupene o Niu Tīreni hei kaiwhakamārama reo mō te hoko o ngā whenua ki Pōneke, ki Tōtaranui me Taranaki. Nō muri mai ka whakamātauria te tika o ngā kerēme me ngā mahi whakamārama reo a Barrett.  I te tau 1843, ka werohia ia i roto i te Kōti Kerēme Whenua e George Clarke Junior (20 tau te pakeke). I ako a Clarke i te reo Māori i a ia e tamariki ana.
