Mira whītau harakeke i Manawatū

Mira whītau harakeke i Manawatū

Makuru te tupu o te harakeke ki te rohe o Manawatū. He nui ngā mea ka taea te mahi i te harakeke penei te kākahu, te kete, te aho hī ika, te kupenga, te taura, aha atu. He mea nui anō ki te Pākehā te harakeke hei hoko ki tāwāhi. He maha ngā mira ka whakatūria ki Manawatu i te paunga o te rau tau 1800 me te tīmatanga o te rau tau 1900, pēnei i tēnei kei Makerua (ko Ōpiki te ingo i ēnei rā) i tuwhera i te tau 1907. E whitu ōna mīhini hāro; kīia ai, koia tētahi o ngā mira whītau harakeke nui rawa atu i te tuakoi tonga. Ka kuhu ngā iwi o Rangitāne ki ēnei mahi.
