Kōrero: Ngā pakanga o Aotearoa

Te pā o Ruapekapeka (4 o 4)

He tānga tuhi tēnei o te pā o Kawiti i Ruapekapeka, he mea tā e ngā āpiha taua moana i te Hānuere o te tau 1846. Ka kitea i konei te takotoranga o ngā maioro o te pā o Kawiti. Kua hoki mai rātou i te parekura i Ōhaeawai. I tino puhipuhia te pā, ā, kia kitea rā anō kua whakarērea te pā, kātahi ka tomokia. E mea ana ētahi i wehe ngā Māori ki te whakapātari i ngā Pākehā kia haukotia.
