Te whare kura o Whakarewa i Motueka

I te tau 1853 i Whakarewa, e tata ana ki Motueka, ka whakawhitia ētahi whenua ki te Hāhi Mihinare mō te mātauranga; he whenua rāhui Māori ēnei whenua i mua. Ka whakatūria he kura (e whakaaturia nei) ki taua whenua. He tauira tēnei o ngā mahi i te rohe ki te wehe i te Māori mai i tōna whenua. Heoi, ka taka ki ngā tau pokapū o te tekau tau atu i 1980, ka tīmata te Hāhi Mihinare ki te hoko atu i aua whenua. Ka whakahē ngā rangatira Māori ki tēnei. Whāia, ka nōhia te whenua e Harry Ruru, he minita Mihinare, he uri hoki nō ngā tīpuna nō rātou ēnei whenua mai rā anō. Kia hipa ētahi tau, ka whakahokia e te Hāhi Mihinare aua whenua ki te hunga nō rātou ake aua whenua.
