Te taua pirihimana mauhere i a Te Rua, 1916

Te taua pirihimana mauhere i a Te Rua, 1916

E toha ana ngā Pirihimana i te pū me te matā i  mua i te mauheretanga o Rua Kēnana ki roto o Te Urewera i te marama o Āperira i te tau 1916. He poropiti a Rua mō ngā iwi o Tūhoe, ā, ka kī a Rua koia te Mihāia hou i matapaetia ai e Te Kooti. Nō te tau 1907 ka tū i a Te Rua rāua ko ana pononga te kāinga nui ki Maungapōhatu. I muri i te huakitanga o te riri nui i te tau 1914 kāore a Rua i tautoko atu kia pakanga tōna iwi. Ki te hunga Pākehā, me ngā rangatira Māori a Āpirana Ngata rāua ko Māui Pōmare, he turaki i te ture tā Te Rua. Ko te taua pirihimana nei he mea whakahaere i te kore putanga o Te Rua ki te kōti mō ngā whakapae hoko waipiro. Ka mauheretia a ia i muri i te puhinga o tana tama me tōna pāpara kia mate, ā, kotahi noa iho te wharanga ki te pirihimana kotahi.
