Te whakanuia te mira puehu parāoa

He hui tēnei ki te kāinga o Pāwhakairo e tata ana ki Ahuriri i te tau 1863, hei whakanui i tētahi mira puehu parāoa he mea hoatu e te kāwanatanga ki ngā Māori o te takiwā. Kua hora te tahua roa ki mua i te manuhiri – he tahā huahua, he korukoru, he kuihi, he ‘poaka mōmona rawa atu’ (mai i te Daily Southern Cross, 3 o Akuhata 1863).
