He tiaki tereina

I te tau 1900, i tēnei tokorua e kai tupeka ana ki te teihana rerewe i Ōtaki, e tuhi oati ana ētahi Māori ki te whakamutu i te kai tupeka. Ko te rangapū tērā o Te Rōpū Turaki Waipiro o Ngā Wāhine Karaitiana o Niu Tīreni i whakapau kaha ki te take nei i te taha o ngā rangatira hapū, iwi hoki. Ahakoa ko te waipiro tōna tino ito, ko te kīanga o te rōpū ka tīmata me te kōrero, ‘He whakaae tēnei nāku kia kaua ahau e kai tupeka’.
