Kōrero: Te Kōti Whenua

Kōmihana Rees–Carroll, tau 1891

He roia a William Lee Rees (nō Ākarana) i hautū ngā kēhi mō ngā whenua o Te Tai Rāwhiti, rāua tahi ko te rangatira i a Wī Pere i ngā tau mai i 1880. I te tau 1891 ka tonoa a Rees ki te kōmihana kāwanatanga mō ngā ture e pā ana ki ngā whenua Māori. Ko ētahi atu o taua uepū ko te māngai o te Tai Rāwhiti ko Timi Kara rāua ko te apiha hoko whenua ō mua a Thomas Mackey. Ka puta te whakatau a te Kōmihana ki ngā hē a te kōti whenua ki te tuku taitara ki te hunga takitahi, engari he pai ake kia tuku ki ngā hapū, iwi rānei. Kei konei te pūrongo reo Māori.
