Parihaka: its rape and its healing. Part 2 of 2.
At the annual hui of Nga Puna Waihanga, the Maori arts organisation, about 800 guests heard the story of Parihaka from one of its leaders, Milton Hohaia.
They heard of the invasion of Parihaka in 1881 by 2400 mounted troops and the realisation that Te Whiti O Rongomai and Tohu Kakahi were fighting for the survival of their people and their cherished lands. Instead of fighting with weapons, Te Whiti and Tohu and their followers used peaceful means of passive resistance.
This programme as tells the story of a rock, Raoto Tapairu which stands on Tarawainuku Marae, as the abode of the mauri of the Taranaki people. Selwyn Muru returns a mihi to Milton Hohaia and for the history he so willingly shared with visitors.
