Wiremu Te Āwhitu

Ko te pirihi Māori tuatahi o te hāhi Katorika ko Minita Matua Wiremu Te Āwhitu kei waenganui i a Pīhopa Snedden o Te Whanganui-a-Tara (taha māui) rāua ko Pīhopa Delargey o Tāmaki-makaurau. Kei te whakaeke rātou ki runga i te marae o Ngāpuawaiwaha ki Taumarunui mō ngā whakanuitanga e 25 tau o te pirihitanga o Te Āwhitu. Arā anō ngā minita Māori i whai wāhi ki tēnei rā – ko Henare Tate rātou ko Karaitiana King, ko Harwood, ko Bennett ko Peter Lander (he irāmutu nā Te Āwhitu).

Ngā mihi ki a Te Puni Kōkiri
