Wharehoka Wano will be discussing Te Kingitanga and Ngā Iwi o Taranaki. Founded in the Waikato in 1858, Kingitanga sought to unite Māori under a single sovereign. The connection between the second Māori king, Tawhiao, and Taranaki is strong, and based on principles of peace central to both Parihaka and the Pai Marire religion. As the King’s representative in Taranaki, Wharehoka Wano will discuss this past, and what it could mean for the future of Taranaki.
