Te tikanga o te muru, i te paunga o te rautau 1800

Kāore i te mōhiotia nā tēhea tohunga Māori ēnei whakaahua i tā, engari kei te whakaatu i te tikanga Māori o te muru ki roto o Waikato. Kei te pikitia tuatahi ko te hunga o Ngāti Koraki e whakamihia ana e te hau kāinga a Pārāwera. I muri i te kai hākari i te aroaro o te wharenui, ka tuku hoiho mai ngā manuhiri ki te tangata whenua hei whakaea i tētahi hara ō rātou. Ka whakaturea hoki te tikanga o te muru i te Ture Exemption Ordinance 1844. He tohu tēnā ture ki te ora me te pakari o te mana motuhake Māori i tērā wā.
