Te Hunga Whākorekore

Te Hunga Whākorekore

I runga i ngā whakahē ki ngā hoko whenua ki Te Matau-a-Māui ka hua mai ko Te Hunga Whākorekore. Ko tōna whāinga ki te aukati i te hoko me te rīhi; ko te whakatika i ngā hoko ō mua me te whakahoki i ngā moni a ngā kaihoko. Kei konei ngā rangatira o te kāhui me te kaiahuwhenua o Te Matau-a-Māui a Henry Russell (e noho ana kei waenganui). I hāngai ōna whakaaro ki ērā o ngā Māori, hāunga i a ia ētahi o ngā whenua o ngā Māori.
