Te pā o Ōnawe, te whanga o Hakaroa (1 o 2)

Te pā o Ōnawe, te whanga o Hakaroa

I te paunga o te tau 1831, i te tīmatanga rānei o te tau 1832, ka hoki a Te Rauparaha me ana toa ki te whakaeke i a Ngāi Tahu e noho ana ki te whanga o Hakaroa. Ka rongo a Ngāi Tahu mō tēnei, ka hangaia a Ōnawe, te pā i te kūrae o Ōnawe. Ka hinga i a Te Rauparaha taua pā, ka mau a Te Maiharanui (Tama-i-hara-nui), ariki o Ngāi Tahu. Ko tēnei te pito whakatetonga rawa o Te Wai Pounamu i taea ai e Te Rauparaha. Whāia, ka matika a Ngāi Tahu o te tonga kia kawea te riri ki te pito raki o te motu.
