Ko Walter Callaway

Ko Walter Callaway

He kaitope rākau, he kaikeri koura a Wāta Te Wahahuia nō Hauraki, koia tētahi o ngā Māori tuatahi kia tūao mō te Pakanga o Āwherika ki te Tonga. I whānau mai ia ki te takutai o Kikowhakarere, ko tōna matua Kōnihi ko John Callaway, ā, ko tōna whaea ko Hihana Te Awaere o te hapū o Te Ngate, o Ngāi Te Rangi. I hono atu a Callaway ki te Ope Tuatahi, ki reira hau ai tōna rongo mō tōna hautoa puta noa i te pakanga ki Āwherika ki te Tonga, ā, ka kake tonu ia ki te tūranga o te rūtene. I taotū a Callaway i te pakanga, ā, i tōna hokinga mai ka pā mai te mate koroputaputa, ā, nō te tau 1926 i te ekenga ki te tau 53 ka mate ia.
