Te waihotanga a Tirikātene

Ahakoa kāore ia i tohua hei minita i te kāwanatanga Reipa tuawhā, i kaha whawhai tonu a Whetū Tirikātene-Sullivan mō ngā take Māori i te Pāremata. Riro rawa tana tūru i te 1996, kua puritia tonuhia e Whetū rāua ko tana matua a Eruera (ka kitea i te whakaahua i muri i a ia), te tūru mō Ngāi Māori ki te Tonga mō te 64 tau. I te tau 2011 ka pōtihia te irāmutu a Whetū, a Rino Tirikātene, ki te Pāremata mō Te Tai Tonga, ko te nuinga atu o te takiwā o Ngāi Māori ki te Tonga ka kapi i tēnei.
