Kohimarama conference, 1860 (2 o 2)

Kohimarama conference, 1860

In an attempt to prevent the fighting in Taranaki from spreading to other regions and tribes, Governor Thomas Gore Browne held a conference of chiefs at Kohimarama, Auckland, in August 1860. More than 100 chiefs attended (although a similar number refused). The conference was held in the Melanesian Mission station founded by Bishop Selwyn, shown in this photograph taken around 1860. This beach was later known as Mission Bay. Two waka and a group of whare can be seen in the foreground.
