Tama a te rangatira, tau 1769

Ko Sydney Parkinson tētahi o ngā tohunga tā i te haerenga tuatahi mai o Kāpene Kuki ki Aotearoa. Nō te tau 1769 ka tāia e Parkinson tēnei whakaahua o te tama a tētahi rangatira o Pēwhairangi. Te āhua nei i miria tōna makawe ki te hinu o te hua tītoki me te hinu o te ate mangō i mua i te pūnga hei piki. E mau ana hoki ia i te titireia kua tiaia ki ōna makawe, me tētahi rei puta. Kotahi te pōhoi pounamu, e rua hoki ngā niho mangō kei tōna taringa. Kei ōna pakihiwi tētahi kākahu ātaahua me te au rei kei mua.
