Kōrero: Treaty of Waitangi

Paora Tūhaere, 1878

Paora Tūhaere, 1878

Ngāti Whātua chief Paora Tūhaere, seen here in 1875, had been an ally of the government since the early 1840s. He later grew concerned about Māori being able to retain control over their own affairs. From 1879 he held a series of hui at his home at Ōrākei, Auckland, to discuss whether the Treaty of Waitangi had been upheld. Tūhaere became a leading member of the Te Kotahitanga (Māori unity) movement, which aimed to create a Māori parliament to give Māori greater authority in government.
