Tamihana, a NZ great

May 28th, 2019 | By

Tamahere’s preeminent historical figure, Ngati Haua rangatira Wiremu Tamihana, has again been hailed as one of New Zealand’s greatest figures.

Yesterday, to mark the reprinting of the seminal, 2002 biography by Dame Evelyn Stokes, Wiremu Tamihana Rangatira, historian Vincent O’Malley gave a public lecture at Waikato University.

To a large audience that included many Ngati Haua, O’Malley said the evidence Tamihana was one of the most outstanding people in NZ history was overwhelming.

Tamahere’s first person of historic significance, Wiremu Tamihana, has been chosen as New Zealander of the year … 1863.

Celebration was the order of the day when Ngati Haua and Crown representatives signed a deed of settlement over historic grievances today at the Te Iti o Haua Marae, Tauwhare.

Attended by King Tuheitia and Treaty Negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson, the day was recorded in print and on film by the AlJazeera television network, which provided an interesting international perspective of the event and New Zealand’s treaty settlement process.

Many Ngati Haua, King Tuheitia and Minister Finlayson, who is also Minister of Arts, Culture and Heritage, also visited the Waitakaruru Sculpture Park for the re-dedication of ‘Absolute Divide’, an artwork which portrays the original boundary line, drawn in 1864 following the land wars, that separated the Waikato and Matamata/Piako districts.
