USER REVIEW
Woven by Water handles some otherwise awkward history in a respectful way. There are slight errors in the text, that one more intimately placed will recognize. Members of Ngati Rangi (from the Ohura District), will raise an eyebrow at the suggestion that the eponymous ancestor, Rangitengaue is female ! Also the repeated error that Hera Matahinewau was Te Kere's sister. She was in fact, his neice - the eldest daughter of Pea Ngataierua. Nevertheless, its an amazing overall narrative - and the humorous approach to some topics has been appropriate. The book has given credit to the great work of Veteran activists, Titi Tihu and Hikaia Amohia - no doubt this is appreciated from the people of the river who can wholeheartedly attest to their unfailing commitment. The author has also presented some of the realities experienced by non-Maori researchers attempting to enter into the indigenous zone. The chapter on the Holy War is perhaps my favourite, and I could not help but smile at Topine - the wife beater. I have emerged educated. A great book, which one might possibly read a number of times.

Te Ikahaehae Kupenga - in the Hunakeha Tree Story.
While this account probably belongs in my blogs of the River; the fact that it features Te Ikahaehae - a Ngati Maru man,  deems it appropriate that it should also be here.  W.T.Morpeth gives a short account of a tree known as Hunakeha, that was picked by an...

Just some background info, though I noticed there was a Hare Te Kaho in the list of fallen Kupapa.  Perhaps a brother to Mangu Te Kaho; Need to check to try to get a list of Whanganui Kupapa, to see if there are any more Te Kaho whanau in there.
