Te haerenga o Rātana ki Rānana

Ko T. W. Rātana e tū ana i te taha o te kaipuke Barabool ki Āwherika ki te Tonga i mua tonu i tana haerenga ki Rānana. Nō te tau 1924 ka tau atu a ia ki reira ki te whakatakoto i te petihana a te iwi Māori mō ngā wāwāhinga ture Tiriti o Waitangi. I a rātou e marere ana ka taki whawhai ngā Māori me ngā tāngata o Rōtihia (Rhodesia) – ko Timuwawe (Zimbabwe) ināianei – mō te ‘tae o te kiri’. Ka tau rā anō te puehu i te meatanga o ētahi tāngata o Ahitereiria me Aotearoa, ka whiua atu e rātou te hunga o Rōtihia ki te moana. Kātahi rawa ka tau anō te āio.
