Te Waha O Te Riri

It was here, at Kororipo Pa, next to Te Kirikokai kainga, the Ngapuhi stronghold of military might; that numerous waka taua were launched southward, during the sanguineous Musket Wars of the 1820s.

Many thanks go out to Tohunga Mau Rakau, Kipa Munroe, who hosted the author, as well as the kaitiaki of the Kerikeri Basin area, the Ngati Rehia hapu.
