4&lt;h2&gt;Chief Kawiti talks peace at Pehiaweri&lt;/h2&gt;&lt;p&gt;Before the 1840's until his death in 1854, &lt;em&gt;Te Ruki Kawiti &lt;/em&gt;was paramount chief throughout &lt;em&gt;Te Whare Kura &lt;/em&gt;of the &lt;em&gt;Ngapuhi. &lt;/em&gt;After the seige of &lt;em&gt;Ruapekapeka Pa &lt;/em&gt;in 1846, he accompanied the remnants of his&lt;em&gt; Parawhau &lt;/em&gt;tribe to their beautiful&lt;em&gt; pa, Pukepoto, &lt;/em&gt;situated on a picturesque hill at&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;Pehiaweri, &lt;/em&gt;now known as &lt;em&gt;Glenbervie, &lt;/em&gt;on the outskirts of &lt;em&gt;Whangarei.  &lt;/em&gt;Here in the morning sunshine, he delivered his famous message of peace in eloquent classical &lt;em&gt;Maori.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;E te whanau, i te pakanga ahau ki te Atua i te po, heoi kihai ahau i mate. &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;Na reira, takahia te riri ki raro i 0 koutou waewae.&lt;/em&gt; &lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Kia u ki te Whakapono, he poai pakeha koutou i muri nei.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Waiho kia kakati te namu i te wharangi 0 te pukapuka., hei konei ka tahuri atu ai. &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;Kei takahia e koutou, nga papa pounomu a 0 koutou tupuna e lakota nei. &lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;Titiro atu ki nga taumata 0 te moana.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt; &lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Translated:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&amp;quot;My illustrious warriors and people, I had war with God during the night, but I survived. Therefore I call upon you to suppress war under foot. Hold fast to the Christian faith, for the day will come when you will become  labourers under your &lt;em&gt;Pakeha &lt;/em&gt;friends. Await, therefore, until the sandfly nips the pages of the Book, (the Treaty). Then, and only then, shall you arise and oppose.Do not desecrate the&lt;em&gt; Papa Pounomu &lt;/em&gt;(the Articles of the Treaty endorsed by your forebears).&lt;em&gt; &lt;/em&gt;Look beyond the sea, to the transfiguration of the future.&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;When &lt;em&gt;Te Ruki Kawiti &lt;/em&gt;died his cloak fell on the shoulders of &lt;em&gt;Maihi Paraone Kawiti, &lt;/em&gt;the youngest of his three sons, the other two having fallen in battle. &lt;em&gt;Maihi &lt;/em&gt;was a worthy successor to his famous father, and later was presented with the &lt;em&gt;&amp;quot;Rongomai &lt;/em&gt;Seal&amp;quot; (lasting peace), which is now in the Waitangi Museum.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;On his deathbed, &lt;em&gt;Maihi Kawiti &lt;/em&gt;named &lt;em&gt;Hoterene, &lt;/em&gt;his nephew, as paramount chief. Unfortunately, before &lt;em&gt;Hoterene &lt;/em&gt;died in 1910, he did not appoint a successor, so though &lt;em&gt;Kaka Porowini &lt;/em&gt;was an aspirant for the position, he was never really accepted as such. &lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;It was not until &lt;em&gt;Kaka &lt;/em&gt;died that &lt;em&gt;Te Riri Maihi Kawiti, &lt;/em&gt;the second son of &lt;em&gt;Maihi Paraone Kawiti, &lt;/em&gt;became the official leader of the tribes within the &lt;em&gt;Whare Kura &lt;/em&gt;of the &lt;em&gt;Ngapuhi. &lt;/em&gt;The &lt;em&gt;mana &lt;/em&gt;of &lt;em&gt;Te Riri &lt;/em&gt;was high in the eyes of both &lt;em&gt;Maori &lt;/em&gt;and &lt;em&gt;Pakeha. His &lt;/em&gt;people respected him for his great knowledge of tribal lore and genealogy, while his patriotic services to both peoples during World Wars I and 11 were recognised by an O.B.E. He died in 1964.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Reference: Florence Keene, &lt;em&gt;Tai Tokerau&lt;/em&gt;, Northland Room, Whangarei Library&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
