Its fantastic that you have learnt about this very sad part of our history. I have just read Witi Ihimaera's novel called 'The Parihaka Woman' and it is terrible how the Maori were pushed off their land and how many men were kept in gaol for years without trial, how the families suffered as their possessions were taken - crops and livestock destroyed- their means to live their own way taken away.
