Wiremu Rātana i Taupō-nui-a-Tia

Wiremu Rātana i Taupō-nui-a-Tia

Ka piki anō te taupori Māori whai muri te paheketanga i ngā tau whakamutunga o te rau tau 1800. I te mutunga o te Pakanga Tuarua o te Ao, i te noho te nuinga o te iwi Māori ki ngā taiwhenua, kei waho atu i ngā nekeneke o te ao hurihuri. Heoi, koinei anō te wā ka tīmata te Māori kia aro ki te ao whānui. Nō konei ka tipu he tuakiri hōu. Nā Wiremu Rātana ko te hāhi Rātana. Ka huri ia i te motu mā runga motukā ki te hāpai i tāna i whakapono ai. Ka kaha ake te mana o te hāhi i tōna haumi ki te rōpū Reipa.
