Te Rauparaha: Hei tautoko i te kaiako

Te Rauparaha

Ko te matua o Te Rauparaha ko Werawera o Ngāti Kimihia, he hapū anō nō Ngāti Toa Rangatira. Ko tōna whaea ko Parekohatu nō Ngāti Huia, he hapū nō Ngāti Raukawa.

E ai ki ngā kōrero a Tamihana he tangata ataahua a Werawera. "Nō tōna kaumātuatanga ka nui haere tōna ingoa i runga i ana mahi atawhai me tōna toa, i tōna mōhio anō ki te whakahaere tikanga mō tōna iwi mō Ngāti Toa."

Ko te wahine matua a Werawera ko Waitaoro, nō Ngāti Te Maunu o Ngāti Toa. Ā rāua, ko Nohorua tō mua, ka rere i muri ko Hinekoto, ko Te Aratangata.

Koia nei te take i kore ai a Korauaputa i tino pirangi kia tukua noatia tana tamāhine ki a Werawera. Ko tana whakautu "Waiho taku kōtiro i konei hei kawe wai māku." Ko tā Werawera "Tērā pea mā te kōtiro kawe wai ka puta he taniwha." Katahi a Korouaputa ka whakaae ki a Parekohatu hei wahine māna. Ka puta ko Te Rangikatukua, ko Waitohi, ko Te Kiripaeahi, ko Te Mahurenga, ko Te Rauparaha te pōtiki, i karangatia ai ko Māui Pōtiki.

Hei ngā tuhituhi a Tamihana he tamaiti pai a Te Rauparaha i tana itinga, kāore i tangitangi, he tamaiti whakarongo ki ōna matua i ngā wā katoa.

I whānau a Te Rauparaha i Te Taharoa, he kainga anō nō Ngāti Toa ki te taha tonga o Kāwhia. Nā Tamihana te kōrero "Ko te tikanga o tēnei ingoa o Te Rauparaha he rau pōhue i whakarikarikatia hei rau tao mō te umu i taona ai a Te Rangikataua e Waikato." He karanga matua a Te Rangikataua ki a Te Rauparaha, i patua i te pakanga o Hingakaka. E kīia ana i whānau a Te Rauparaha i te wā o Hingakaka, te pakanga tino nui a Te Tini o Tainui (ngā uri o Tainui ki Kāwhia) me te Mana o Tainui (ngā uri o Tainui ki uta). Ko te aranga tēnei o ngā rangatira o Waikato, o Te Rauangaanga me ōna hapū karangaranga, ki te whawhai ki a Pikauterangi me Ngāti Toa katoa. Ka parekuratia a Ngāti Toa me tō rātou tino rangatira, me Pikauterangi, i konei.

He Tipua He Taniwha

Mai i tana tamarikitanga ka whakaakongia a Te Rauparaha ki ngā mahi a te rangatira, ki te mau rākau, ki te whaikōrero, ki te kawa me ngā tikanga, me ērā mahi katoa. Nō tana taiohinga ka kitea te koi o tōna hinengaro me tōna kakama, a, he tamaiti manaaki a Te Rauparaha.

Ahakoa he tangata potopoto noa, he tangata māia, pakari tōna tinana. E ono ngā matimati o tōna waewae mauī.

I tērā wā uru ai ngā taitama rangatira, pēnei i a Te Rauparaha mā, ki te whare wānanga o Ngāti Toa ki te ako i ngā kōrero nehe, i ngā pakiwaitara, i ngā whakapapa, me ngā taonga tuku iho. He tangata matatau, he whetū marama ia.

Anei tētehi tuhinga kōrero i tāia i tērā rau tau. Nā Rakera pea, he kuia nō Ngāti Toa.

Ko te wahine tuatahi a Te Rauparaha ko Marore, nō Ngāti Te Rā, he hapū anō nō Ngāti Toa. Na, i tētehi rā ka huihui mai a Ngāti Toa ki te hākari, ka tohatohaina ngā kai, engari he iti noa iho mā Marore. He whakaiti tēnei i a Marore. Ka pouri a Te Rauparaha ka tohe māna e whai he kiko hei kīnaki mā Marore. Ka arahina tana taua ki uta ki te rapu i te kīnaki nei. I tō rātou taenga ki tētehi pā o Waikato ka wehewehe rātou. Ka tomo ngētehi ki roto i te pā, ka whakatakoto ngohi a Te Rauparaha mā ki waho ki waenga i te pā harakeke. Ka patupatua ngā torotoro a Ngāti Toa, ka taki rere ki waho, ka whāia e Waikato. Oho tonu ake a Te Rauparaha mā ka patupatua a Waikato, ka mauheretia a Te Hunga me ngētehi atu ka kawea ki Kāwhia patu ai. He rite tonu te ngāki a Te Rauparaha i ngā mate o Ngāti Toa.

He wā anō i noho ai a Te Rauparaha ki Maungatautari, ki te iwi o tōna whaea, hei kaihari i ngā rākau a Hape-ki-tua-rangi, te rangatira o Ngāti Raukawa. Ka whakamatemate a Hape, ka hui mai te iwi. Ka pā atu te reo o Hape ki tōna iwi:

"I a au e ora ana he iwi te iwi, he rangatira tō koutou; e manaakitia mai ana koutou e ngā iwi o Rotorua; ināianei kua mate au he mōkaikai koutou hei utu mō aku hahautanga ki ngā tuawhenua. Ko tēnei, e aku rangatira, māku e ui atu ki a koutou ki tā koutou e pai ai hei rangatira whakakapi i muri i toku tūnga."

E toru rawa ngā pātaitanga a Hape. Nā Te Rauparaha anake i whakautu:

"Whakarongo mai e te whakaminenga nei, e koe e te tūpāpaku! Ko ahau tonu, ko Te Rauparaha, te rangatira i muri i a koe hei whakakapi i tou tūnga."

Kaore kau tētehi atu tangata i hamumu ake. Ka kīi ake a Hape:

"E Te Rauparaha, e rite rānei koe ki tōku toa, ki tōku mana, ki ngā wāhi katoa o ngā iwi?"

Ka mea atu a Te Rauparaha:

"Whakarongo mai! Ka haerea e au ōu haerenga katoa i rangatira ai koe ki runga i ngā iwi katoa. Otirā, e iti koe i ahau. Whakarongo mai, ka iti tōu toa i tōku, me āu whawhaitanga, me te haerenga o tōku ingoa ki te ao katoa, puta noa ki runga, puta noa ki raro; ko ngā wāhi i ngaro i te haerenga o tōu rangatiratanga, mā tōku e haere e kite. Ko ngā mahi i hapa i tōu toa, mā tōku e whakaoti, e whakatutuki."

Hei konei ka kitea te whakahīhī o Te Rauparaha. He mea kapo tonu i ngā āhuatanga katoa kia pai ai tōna tū hei rangatira mō te katoa.

Ka mate atu a Hape ka riro i a Te Rauparaha te rangatiratanga o Ngāti Raukawa, ka moea te pouaru, a Te Akau, hei wahine māna. He wahine rangatira ia nō Te Arawa. Tā rāua ko Ka-Tu-Te Rangikatukua (Katu), ko Tamihana Te Rauparaha tētehi o ōna ingoa.

Nō muri mai i te matenga o Hape ka torotoro haere a Te Rauparaha rāua ko Te Whatanui, rangatira nui o Ngāti Raukawa, i ngā iwi, i ngā rangatira o runga, o raro.

I tērā wa anō ka oho ake a Te Rauparaha ki te ngāki i ngā mate o ngā tamariki a tōna tuahine a Waitohi. Ka tukuna tana karere whakatūpato i a Ngāti Pou. Ka titoa a Te Rangi Topeora tana kaioraora e whakaingoa ana i ngā rangatira o Ngāti Pou i taki patua ai e Ngāti Toa.

Ka Mate, Ka Mate

He haerenga anō tā Te Rauparaha ki Taupō kia kite i a Ngāti Tūwharetoa. I tana taenga atu ki Te Rangatira, he wāhi whakateraki o Taupō Moana, ka tūtaki ki a Te Rore, he rangatira nō reira. Ka mea mai e kore e warewaretia ngā mahi kōhuru a Te Rauparaha mā i a Ngāti Te Aho. Ka hoe rāua ki Te Rapa, kia tūtaki ki a Te Heuheu. Te kupu whakatūpato a Te Heuheu haere ki Rotoaira, ki a Te Wharerangi, i tōna pā i Motuōpuhi.

Na, ka rongo a Ngāti Te Aho kua tae atu a Te Rauparaha ki reira ka whāia. I te taenga o Te Rauparaha ki Motuōpuhi ka hunaia ki te rua kumara. Ka taupokina te rua, ka whakanohoia e Te Wharerangi tana wahine, a Te Rangikoea, ki runga. Nā te mahi maminga nei ka hewa a Ngāti Te Aho.

Ka tau mai a Tauteka me Ngāti Te Aho ki Motuōpuhi ka ui atu ki a Te Wharerangi kei whea a Te Rauparaha? Ka whakameme a Te Rauparaha, "Ka mate ka mate." Ka whakautua e Te Wharerangi kāhore ia i te mohio, ka whakameme anō a Te Rauparaha, "Ka ora, ka ora." Haere tonu a Tauteka me āna toa. Nō te putanga mai o Te Rauparaha i te rua kumara, ka hakaina tana haka," Ka mate, ka mate."

Tirohia ētehi waiata e whai pānga ana ki a Ngāti Toa.  

Kīkiki kākaka me Ka Mate, Ka Mate

Kīkiki kākaka kau ana kei waniwania taku tara

Kei tara wāhia, kei te rua i te kerokero

He pounga rāhui te uira ka rarapa

Ketekete kau ana to peru kei riri mau au e koro e

Hī! Hā!

Ka wehi au ka matakana

Ko wai te tangata kia rere ure tirohanga ngā rua rerarera

Ngā rua kurī kaka nui i raro āhaha! A!

A, ka mate, ka mate

Ka ora, ka ora

Ka mate, ka mate

Ka ora, ka ora

Tēnei te tangata pūhuruhuru

Nāna nei i tiki mai whakawhiti te rā!

A hūpane a hūpane

A hūpane kaupane

Whiti te rā!

Hoki ake ki runga
