Matiu Witana, 1898-1964 (Te Rarawa)

Loading the player...

Ko Matiu Witana tētahi o ngā hōia ō mua o Te Hokowhitu a Tū. Ka tū ia hei māngai mō te RSA.

I te tau 1916, i uru atu a Matiu me ana parata e rua, ko Aperehama rāua ko Wiremu ki roto i te rōpū NZEF. Mīharo katoa ngā parata i te tirohanga atu, kua rēhita kētia e Aperehama. Nā tana teina a Tame tana tūmau tono i whakamahi. Kāti, i te tau 1917 ka mate a Tame. I piri tonu a Matiu ki ngā here ki waenga i a ia me ngā hōia. He tangata ngākaunui ki te tangata. Ka mutu ko Lofty tōna ingoa karanga.
