Kōrero: Ngā Reo Irirangi

Ko Kīngi Tāhiwi

E tū ana a Kīngi Tāhiwi ki muri i te tukuoro ki waho atu i te taiwhanga a 2ZB ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Kei tōna taha ētahi tāngata mau pūweru rerekē. Nō te pakarutanga o te Pakanga Tuarua o te Ao ka tū ia hei āpiha rere. Nō te 6 o Hongongoi i te tau 1942 ka hopukina tēnei ororongo āna. I mate tana tama i te pakanga i ngā rangi i runga ake o Āwherika ki te Raki. Ka mate a Kingi ki Ōtaki i te Tīhema, 1948.
