Military camp at Lake Waikaremoana, 1869

Military camp at Lake Waikaremoana, 1869

Māori resistance leader Te Kooti spent considerable time around Lake Waikaremoana between 1868 and 1872. Government forces made an exploratory expedition to the area in 1869, which this drawing records. Military redoubts were established in the 1870s, but by then Te Kooti had moved on. In this drawing the government military camp is in the foreground and there are Māori villages on the other side of the lake.
