Ko Āpirana Ngata ki Waitangi

Ko Āpirana Ngata ki Waitangi

Ko Tā Āpirana Ngata tēnei e tātaki ana i te haka ki te whakanuitanga kotahi rau o te Tiriti o Waitangi i te tau 1940. Heoi i kōrero hāngai tonu a Ngata i taua wā me tāna kī, 'Kāore au e mōhio ki tētahi tau e rite ana te raruraru o te iwi Māori pērā ki te rautau nei … Ka hoki ngā mahara, ā, he aha tā te Māori tirohanga? Kua ngaro te whenua, kua ngaro ā-moa te rangatiratanga, ā, kua maramara, kua whati ngā tikanga Māori.' Ka whakaara anō ia i ngā ito whenua me tāna kōrero mō te mau paraikete whero ā ētahi hei tohu ki ngā nawe whenua.
