Waerenga-a-Hika

I te tau 1865 ka pakaru mai te riri tara whare ki roto i a Ngāti Porou. Ka whawhai ngā Hauhau ki ērā o te iwi. He pakanga kino ka tū ki Waerenga-a-Hika i Tūranga. Ka whakaekea te pā e Ngāti Porou me ngā hōia a te kāwanatanga; e 800 ngā Pai Mārire i roto i te pā, ko te nuinga nō Tūranga. Ka hipa ngā rā e rima, ka hinga te pā. E 11 ngā kaiwhakaeke ka hinga, e 71 ngā kaiwawao ka mate.
