Te tokotoko a Wī Pere

Nā Raharuhi Rukupō i whao tēnei tokotoko paraoa mō te Mema Pāremata o te Tai Rāwhiti mō Wī Pere. He mea tuku tēnei ki a Wī Pere nōna i haere ki Ingarangi ki te tono ki a Kuini Wikitōria ki te hōmai pūtea mā te iwi Māori. Nō te tau 1884 a Pere ka uru atu ki te whare miere, engari ka riro te kōwhiringa o muri ki a Timi Kara. I te tau 1894 ka kōwhiria anō koia. Nō te tau 1907 ka tū ia hei mema ki te Kaunihera Ture.
