'Kikia te Poa', he haka, 1901

He whakaahua tēnei o te tira kapa e haka ana i a 'Kikia Te Poa' i tōna putanga ki te Weekly Press i te marama o Oketopa i te tau 1901. Ahakoa ngā whakatau a te Kāwanatanga kia kaua te iwi Māori e tū tahi ki te ahi o te pakanga me ō rātou hoa Pākehā, ka ngana tonu ngā iwi Māori ki ngā kaupapa mahi moni. I titoa a 'Kikia Te Poa' hei whakapuaki i tō rātou ātete i te Poa, me tā rātou tautoko i te Kuini me te Emepaea. I mahia te haka nei ki ngā rā hapori pēnei i tēnei i tū ki Pāpāwai ki Wairarapa i te 22 o Māehe 1900, me tērā ki te Rāhui Basin ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara i te 28 me te 29 o Māehe 1900.
