Te rōpū hōia Māori ki Korea, 1953

Te rōpū hōia Māori ki Korea, 1953

I te tau 1953 ka whakatūria te rōpū mau pū Māori mai i te Petere 162 o te Matua Whīra 16 o te Taua Pupuhi Pū Roera o Aotearoa ki Koria. Atu i te mauī ko Pupuhi Pū P. Te Kani (Tauranga rātou ko W. Martin (Whakatāne), ko J. J. Hudson (Whakatāne), ko B. Manga (Tūranga), ko Raihana Pomatia J. T. Popata (Kaitāia). I tū te pakanga o Koria i waenga i ngā tau o 1951 me 1953.  Kāore he wāhanga Māori tūturu o Kayforce, te ope o Aotearoa ki Korea. Ahakoa tērā, i tahuri a ngāi Māori ki te whakapipiri hei kapa pupuhi pū, i ētahi atu kapa iti pērā rānei. I te tuatahi he Māori tētahi 7.5% o Kayforce, heoi anō, kotahi i roto i te tokowhā o ngā taituarā o muri mai, he Māori.
