He puni ki Waitara, i 1860

I te kore whakaae a Wiremu Kīngi Te Rangitāke kia hokona ōna whenua ki Waitara ki te kāwanatanga, ka nōhia aua whenua e te hōia. Nō muri mai ka pakanga. Ka whakatūhia e ngā Pākehā a Puni Waitara ki runga i te whenua tautohe. Ko ngā pakanga matua o te riri tuatahi ki Taranaki i tū ki tēnei rohe. Nō muri mai i te tekau tau atu i 1860, ka tū ngā pakanga nunui ki Waikato meētahi atu takiwā o Taranaki.
