Ngā hōia o Ngāti Tūwharetoa ki Taihape

Ngā hōia o Ngāti Tūwharetoa ki Taihape

Ko te rangapū hōia tēnei o Ngāti Tūwharetoa kei te marae o Ōpaea ki Taihape. Ko tō rātou āpiha ārahi ko Rūtene Hakopa. Ko te tangata mau hūtu ki te taha mauī ko Tūreiti Te Heuheu Tūkino, arikinui o Ngāti Tūwharetoa. He nui ōna whakapau kaha kia whai wāhi te Māori ki te pakanga, ka mutu ka taupatu ōna whakaaro ki ērā iwi e whakamau tonu ana ki te Karauna mō āna mahi hē. Ka taupatupatu i konei ōna whakaaro ki ērā o te Kīngitanga me ngā iwi o  Taranaki, i whakahē rā rātou i te kaupapa whawhai mō te Emepaea o Ingarangi i te wā tonu kāore anō ō rātou nawe kia ea. Ko te whakaaro o Te Heuheu kia whakatārewatia aua whakaaro mō te wā, arā, me tautoko te Māori rāua ko te Pākehā i te Emepaea i roto i aua rā o te uaua, o te taimaha.
