Te whakamaumaharatanga i Pākaitore

Te whakamaumaharatanga i Pākaitore

Ko tēnei tētahi o ngā whakamaharatanga ruarua noa i whakatūria whai muri tata i ngā pakanga o Aotearoa. Kāti he whakamaharatanga tēnei ki ngā hapū o te taha whakararo o Whanganui i whawhai ki ō rātou huānga o te taha whakarunga me ngā Pai Mārire hoki. I tū te pakanga rā ki roto o te awa ki te motu o Moutoa i te 14 o Mei i te tau 1864. He tohu mahara tēnei nā nga Pākehā o te tāone o Whanganui ki ngā toa Māori i tiaki i a rātou. Ko te nuinga atu o ngā pou whakamaharatanga he mea whakatū i ngā tekau tau e rua atu i te tīmatanga o te rautau 1900. Tērā te koronga kia whakanuia te hunga i tautoko i te Karauna, otirā hei tauira ki te reanga e tūmanakotia ana mō te whawhai ki te Pakanga Tuatahi.
