‘Comet over Mount Egmont (Taranaki) and Parihaka’ (Tūnui-a-te-ika kei runga o Taranaki me Parihaka)

‘Comet over Mount Egmont (Taranaki) and Parihaka’

Whai muri i ngā pakanga o te tekau tau atu i 1860, he nui ngā whenua o te Māori i raupatuhia. Whāia ka tū a Parihaka hei pokapū mō ngā ātete ki te rironga o ngā whenua i te Pākehā ki Taranaki. Koinei te wāhi kauhau ai ngā poropiti a Te Whiti-o-Rongomai rāua ko Tohu Kākahi i ō rāua ātetetanga mārire. He wāhi nui i roto i te hītori o Aotearoa te whakaeke a te hōia ki runga o Parihaka i te tau 1881, me te mauhere o ngā poropiti me ā rātou pononga. I tāngia te pikitia nei e Ralph Hōtere. I kitea a tūnui-o-te-ika ki runga o Taranaki i te marama o Nōema 1882, kotahi tau i muri i te whakaeke o Parihaka.
