Te Ātete i runga i te Rangimārie i Parihaka
He poropiti a Te Whiti-o-Rongomai rāua ko Tohu Kākahi. Ko rāua ngā kaiārahi o tētahi hapori whakapono, o Parihaka, i Taranaki. Kua murua ngā whenua Māori e te kāwanatanga, ā, nā ngā tāne o Parihaka i parau, hei whakahē. I turakina e te kāwanatanga ngā taiepa huri noa i aua whenua, heoi anō, nā te iwi o Parihaka i whakatū anō. I te tau 1881, i haere atu ngā hōia a te kāwanatanga ki te whakawhiu i te hapori — ko te ope pōwhiri i a rātou he tamariki e waiata ana. Ka turakina a Parihaka, ā, i mauheretia a Te Whiti rāua ko Tohu.
Parihaka peaceful resistance
Te Whiti-o-Rongomai and Tohu Kākahi were prophets. They led a peaceful religious community, Parihaka, in Taranaki. The government had taken Māori land, so Parihaka men ploughed it in protest. The government pulled down fences around the land, but Parihaka people rebuilt them. In 1881, government soldiers went to punish the community — and were met by singing children. They still destroyed Parihaka, and arrested Te Whiti and Tohu.
