Ngā Māori pupuhi pū repo ki Whitinamu

E whakaahuatia ana i konei ko ngā hōia Māori pupuhi pūrepo ki te pakanga o Whitinamu. I tū ngā taua o Aotearoa ki Vietnam mai i te tau 1965 ki te tau 1972. Ko te matua o te ope taua i tikina mai i te taua pūrepo, ngā kamupene mau pū e rua, me te SAS. I roto i ngā tekau tau mai i 1950 me 1960 i tino piki ake te ōrau o ngāi Māori i roto i ngā ope hōia o Aotearoa. Hei tohu tēnei mō te āhuatanga o aua wā, i eke ai ki tōna hautoru o ngā hōia o Aotearoa i haere ki Whitinamu, he Māori.
