Mei Robin

Mei Robin

Ko Mei Robin me te whakapakoko o Pānia i te ākau i Ahuriri. Nō ngā iwi noho moana a Pānia. Ka moe a ia i tētahi rangatira kia puta tā rāua tama a Moremore. Nāwai ā, ka matika a Moremore hei kaitiaki; me he mangō tōna rite. Ka noho a Mei hei tauira mō te whakapakoko; ko te tiki nō te whānau o Mei. I puāwai te whakaaro mō te whakapakoko nei ki ngā mema o te Thirty Thousand Club, whai muri i tētahi whakamārama mō Pānia nā Pīhopa Pererika Ākuhata Pēneti (Bishop Frederick Augustus Bennett).
