Koinei hoki ngā tohu e whakakotahi ana i tētahi huinga tangata i raro i te kaupapa kotahi, i te whakaaro kotahi. Ka mōhiotia te hononga o ētahi o ngā hōia i hinga i te āhua o ngā tohu i ōna kara. Ka mōhiotia hoki te hononga o ngā hōia ki ōna whenua tipu.


Kia mātaihia ngā tohu e kōrerohia nei, kia kōrerohia hoki ngā tohu nei, ka toko ake ētahi whakaaro nō tō ngākau o tēnā, o tēnā ka whai pānga ki ngā tohu me ōna kōrero.

Ngā Whakakai hei Tohu Kotahitanga

Ko ngā tohu ēnei o ngā ope taua Māori e rua o Aotearoa i kōkiritia i Te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao. E hia kē nei ngā tohu pēnei kua kitea i ngā pae tukutuku hokohoko e hokona atu ana e mea tangata, i mea wāhi i tana kore mōhio ki ōna kōrero.

Koinei te tohu o Te Ope Māori, ā, ko ōna whakarākeinga ko te taiaha, te tewhatewha, me te karauna o te kīngi o Piritana Nui. Ko te kīanga, “Te Hokowhitu-a-Tū” e whakaahua ana i ngā taua Māori me tō rātou hononga ki te atua Māori, te atua o te riri, ki a Tūmatauenga. Kei te nuinga o ngā whakakai pēnei te hanga te rāpopotonga N.Z.N.C  ki raro iho, ko ngā pū ērā o te ingoa tapa o te ope nei, o te New Zealand Native Contingent. Kāore i aro i a mātou te take ko ‘N.Z’ anake ki tēnei tauira.

Ngā Kara hei Tohu Kotahitanga

Kei tēnā whenua, kei tēnā whenua ōna kara, arā, ōna haki, e whakatarengia ana hei whakaatu i tōna kotahitanga, hei whakahīhī hoki mō ōna tāngata. He tohu kua āta whiriwhiria e ōna kāwanatanga, e ōna tāngata hoki. He tauira ēnei o ngā kara i hua mai i te wā o Te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao. He tohu hoki ēnei o te kotahitanga, ka mutu, te rangatiratanga o ngā ope taua i tū ki te pakanga.

Te Kara o te Kīngi

I takohatia e Kīngi George te Tuarima tēnei kara, Te Kara o te Kīngi, ki Te Ope Māori Tuatahi o Aotearoa i te tau 1919.

He tohu tēnei e whakanui ana i te ‘māia o te ope, me ngā hōia i hinga, i taotū hoki i te pakanga’. Koia tētahi o te 13 i hoatu ki ngā wāhanga o te NZEF o Te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao. I te whakakorenga o Te Ope Māori Tuatahi o Aotearoa i muri tata mai i tōna hokinga mai ki Aotearoa, kāore hoki i karangahia ki te whawhai anō, kāore tēnei kara i whakatarengia e te ope, e wai rānei. I tiakina e te rangatira whakamutunga o taua ope, ā, i tōna matenga ka hoatu e tana pouaru ki te Minita mō ngā Take Māori i te tau 1939 o te wā i runga i tōna hiahia kia whakamahia e Te Ope Tuatahi o Te Rōpū Māori (28th Māori Battalion) i Te Pakanga Tuarua o te Ao. Heoi anō, i te āhua o ngā ture o te mana o ngā ope taua o te wā, kāore i whakaaetia. Ka noho te haki ki Te Whare Pupuri Taonga Dominion tae noa atu ki te tau 1988.

Te Kara o Te Ope Māori Tuatahi o Aotearoa

He rite ōna whakarākeinga ki te whakakai o Te Ope Māori engari e kitea ana te whenumitanga o ngā ope e rua o te iwi Māori o Te Pakanga Tuatahi o te Ao.
