Te Kōti Whenua Māori

Te Kōti Whenua Māori

Ko te mahi a te Kōti Whenua Māori he wetewete i ngā patapatai uaua e pā ana ki te mana whenua Māori i te mea he rerekē te pupuri o ēnei taitara whenua ki ētahi atu whenua. Nō mua tata i ngā pakanga whenua o te tekau tau atu i 1860, ka waihangatia te kōti nei hei whakatakitahi i ngā taitara Māori e māmā ake ai te hokonga o ngā whenua Māori ki te Pākehā. He maha ngā tautohetohenga e pā ana ki te Kōti Whenua Māori. Nō te takiwā o te tau 1900 ka tangohia tēnei whakaahua. E whakaaarohia ana he nōhanga kōti tēnei i roto i te wharenui o Tamatekapua, ki Ōhinemutu, ki te taha tonga o te Rotoruanui-a-Kahumatamomoe.
