Te Ārepa me Te Ōmeka, ngā tekau tau 1930

Te Ārepa me Te Ōmeka, ngā tekau tau 1930

E whakaatu nei tēnei kara i te hītori o te hāhi Rātana. Kei te taha mauī ko Te Arepa te tama a Rātana. Koia te tohu mō te ‘ture wairua’. Kei raro iho ko ngā kupu, ‘Te Timatanga o nga mahi a te mangai e tu nei’. Kei raro iho i tēnei e tuhia ana, ‘1948 Kei te Hahi 40,000’ ‘1935’. Kei waenganui e kī ana, ‘Haere mai e nga morehu e mauiui ana, e taimaha ana, ki to koutou temepara. Kei konei te whakaoranga a Ihoa mo koutou’. Kei te taha matau ko Ōmeka, tērā o ngā tama a Rātana. Koia te tohu mō te ture tangata. E kī ana te kōrero i runga, ‘Te whakaotinga o nga mahi a Piri Wiri Tua e tu nei’, ‘1928 Kei te ture 40,000’ ‘1935’.
