Te Tiriti o Waitangi, Pākehā

Kei tēnei kape o Te Tiriti o Waitangi te tā moko a Wiremu Hopihana, ngā ingoa me ngā tā moko e tautuhi ana i ētahi rangatira mai i te Tai Tokerau. E ai ki tēnei tiriti reo Pākeha ‘ka whai rangatiratanga ngā rangatira me ōna iwi ki te mana o te Whenua me ōna Rawa, ā, ka whai mana hoki ki ngā Ngaherehere, ngā Kaimoana me ētahi atu rawa…ina ka hiahia, ka wawatatia kia puritia te mana ki āna rawa’. I roto i ngā tekau tau o ēnei rā e hāngai ana ngā tukanga whakahaere kerēme titiri ki te whakautu i ngā takahitanga o te mana Māori i whakamanahia ki raro i te mana o te Tiriti.
