Ko Arthur Wakefield rāua ko Te Rangihaeata

Ko Te Rangihaeata (taha matau) rāua ko Arthur Wakefield (taha mauī) ētahi o ngā kaitukituki o ngā iwi e rua. I te tau 1842 ka whakatūria e te Kamupene o Niu Tireni tana puni ki Whakatū. Ko Wakefield te kaihautū. Nā te korekore o ngā whenua haumako, ka haere ia ki roto o Whakatū. I mahara ia kua hokona kētia e ia. Ka whakahē ngā rangatira, a Te Rauparaha rāua ko Te Rangihaeata, ā, ka tahuna te whare o te kairūri. I te 17 o Hune i te tau 1843 ka taki a Wakefield i tana taua e 50, he Pākehā katoa, ki te mauhere i ētahi o Ngāti Toa. I te tūtakinga ka pokanoa te pakū o te pū, ā, hinga tonu atu a Te Rongo; wahine a Te Rangihaeata. Nō te hinganga o Te Rongo ka rere ngā matā, ā, 20 ngā Pākehā (me Wakefield), tokowhā ngā Māori i mate. Kei te whakaahua nei (nā Richard Aldworth Oliver) e mau ana a Te Rangihaeata ki te mere nā Te Rauparaha i koha ki a ia.
