Another story from home.

When I was about 13 years old I went with my grandfather to visit two Pakeha (European) men who were sick in hospital. They had requested to see my grandfather. Somehow he knew it wasn’t going to be a casual visit. We sat with the men in hospital and they shared their story. They were both from the USA but had lived in New Zealand for some years. One day they were hiking through the forest along the East Coast areas from where my grandfather and I come from. I can’t exactly remember the location they mentioned but it was up the Ihungia valley.

During their hike they came across a few caves hidden deep in the forest. Upon entering and working out where they were it was obvious that the caves hadn’t been occupied and seen the light of day for some time. After some exploration in the caves they came across some items to which they were not sure what it was. They eventually realised that they found Māori carvings preserved by the caves. Upon their discovery they decided to take the carvings with them. Some weeks later after their discovery they were able to sell a few of the carvings.

It wasn’t until a week into the sale things started to change. They started to suffer mental relapses of paranoia and suffer from insomnia as they couldn't sleep. They said they started to hear voices. Over time they both lost weight and started feeling sick. After consulting with the doctors a few times the doctors were not able to find anything wrong with their health but it was obvious that their health was declining. They knew that their troubles started from their discovery and findings in the caves and their attitudes of selling and disturbing Māori carvings that should not have been disturbed.
All my grandfather could do at the time was hear their story more for their peace of mind than anything else. Eventually he was able to give them a blessing and prayers but unless they were able to return all the items which they had stolen all my grandfather could do was give these two men a place to talk and confess their wrongs. A week later my grandfather received news from the hospital that these two men had died. Doctors diagnosed their death as natural causes but we knew there was another story and explanation to their death one closely related to dealing with Maori spirituality.
