Ngā kākahu tapu, tau 1844

Ngā kākahu tapu, tau 1844

Ka whakaatu tēnei whakaahua a George French Angas i tētahi wāhi tapu ki te manga o Waiharakeke ki Kāwhia. I tēnei wāhi e tarahau ana ngā kōiwi me ngā taonga o te rangatira a Te Pahi. Whai muri i tōna matenga ka whakatūria te taiapa hei aukati i te tangata i ngā whakawhiu o taua wāhi. E kī ana a Angas i te kapakapa haere ngā kākahu i roto i te hau, ā, i waiho pērātia, mā te hau e whakahoki anō ki a Papatūānuku. I ētahi wā ka tanumia ēnei momo taonga i te taha tonu o te kaipupuri.
