In this week's "Iwi O Te Wiki" episode, Dr Wayne Ngata shares kōrero about Te Aitanga a Hauiti
In honour of our national day of commemoration of the NZ Land Wars, this installment of Once Upon a Taima is a brief version of the battle of Ō-Rākau in 1864. This version is based on the account of Hitiri Te Paerata, a Chief of Ngāti Raukawa & Ngāti te Kohera, who fought in the battle himself - losing many of his whānau, including his Father and Brother.
