This printing press was used by Pātara Te Tuhi to print the Kīngitanga newspaper Te Hokioi e rere atu na. The press had been brought back to New Zealand by Waikato tribal members Wiremu Toetoe and Hēmara Te Rerehau. The pair had travelled to Austria, where they were trained in printing techniques and gifted the press by Archduke Maximilian. Pātara Te Tuhi was assisted by his brother, Hōnana Maioha, on the newspaper.
