From Hongi Hika to Hone Heke - A Quarter Century of Upheaval

Author(s): Ormond Wilson

Maori History, Society & Culture | Secondhand

This book casts fresh light on Maori attitudes at the time of the Treaty of Waitangi, both of those who endorsed and those who opposed it. Based on an intensive study of a wide variety of contemporary sources, it compares the relative impact of the two classes of Europeans who had already settled here: on the one hand the missionaries ad on the other the runaway seamen and convicts escaped from New South Wales. Above all, it contrasts the reactions to these new influences of the three leaders who reacted in very different ways to the chanes in Maori life: Hongi Hika, Te Rauparaha and Hone Heke.
