Among their classes at Paihia were many wistful faces of slaves who had been torn from their distant homes in hongi's wars.
(p. 227) And they came, and with them came Te Kahakaha, he who had been hongi's chosen friend.
Rauparaha set out for Kapiti a year before hongi sailed for England on his fatal quest.
hongi raided Whangaroa and there received a dangerous wound.
Without the skill of hongi, or the craft of Te Waharoa, he was a keen and active fighter.
Of them the most celebrated was the son of hongi's old antagonist, Te Waharoa.
We at length received authentic intelligence of the death of the celebrated hongi.
This young fellow was a nephew of hongi, the powerful head chief of the Ngapuhi tribe.
That night, as hongi's victims were sleeping securely, the Ngapuhi rushed the stockade and all within were killed or taken.
They went, and hongi guaranteed the protection of his tribe, the Ngapuhi, if the missionaries would settle in their territory.
