Te whakawātea i te ngahere

Te whakawātea i te ngahere

Nō ngā tekau tau o 1860 me 1870 ka hokona e te kāwanatanga ngā whenua o Manawatu hei whakanoho i ngā tāngata whai. Ka topea, ka whakawāteatia te ngahere ki ngā mahi ahuwhenua. Ka kite i te whakaahua nei te āhua o te whenua i muri i te topenga o te ngahere. Ko Matamau tēnei wāhi, kei te takiwā o Tanewaka (Dannevirke) i te tekau tau atu i 1880.
