Tohu Maumahara – Tuturau (1 o 2)

Tohu Maumahara – Tuturau

I waihangatia te tohu maumahara nei i te tau 1937 hei maumaharatanga mo te pakanga o Tuturau, ana, i waenganui i Mataura me Wyndham i Southland.  Ko te rangatira o Ngāti Tama, ko Te Pūoho, i heke i Te Ika ā Maui ki te tonga ki te urutomo i a Ngāi Tahu e noho ana ki te paetawhiti o te tonga. Ko tāna i hiahia ai he ‘tīhore i te tuna mai i te whīore ki te māhunga.’  I tū toa mo tētahi wā poto ki Tuturau me tana mauhere i ētahi o te tangata whenua, engari ka patua ia e ngā toa o Ngāi Tahu, me tō rātou kaiārahi ā Tūhawaiki.
