Ko S. Percy Smith me te kapa kairūri, i te tau 1886

E noho ana a Stephenson Percy Smith (tuarua mai i te taha mauī) rātou ko tana kapa kairūri ki te take maunga o Tarawera i te tau 1886. 30 tau a ia ka noho momotu ki ngā taiwhenua, i reira ka noho tahi me te Māori. I taua wā ia e hopu haere ana i ngā kōrero e pā ana ki te ao Māori. I te tau 1892 ka whakatūria e rāua ko Edward Tregear (tētahi anō kairūri i mua), te Rōpū Poronīhia. Nāwai ka tuhi a Smith i te maha o ngā pukapuka e pā ana ki ngā hītori Māori.
