Warwick – WOW what a speech – Warwick is very passionate about the GREAT TARANAKI, fabulous use of word pictures. Warwick share with us the story of Parihaka. From the mid-1860s Parihaka, a Māori settlement in the Taranaki tribal area, became the centre of a peaceful resistance movement. The movement involved not only other Taranaki tribes, but Māori from a number of tribes around the country. Its leaders, Te Whiti-o-Rongomai and Tohu Kākahi, were of both Taranaki and Te Āti Awa descent. The confiscation of land was now the central problem faced by Taranaki Māori, and under Te Whiti’s leadership a new approach to this issue was developed: that of resisting European settlement of the confiscated land through non-violent methods, if you want to know more click on this link.
Project #5 Story telling manual – Bringing history to life. Evaluation from Glenn Flinkenberg.
