- The editorial notes accompanying this narrative state that this is one of several narratives by ‘the late Paora Tuhaere’. The editor continues ‘[a]nother much longer and detailed "History of Ngāti-Whatu," by Paora, was deposited in the Auckland Public Library, and has been translated by me. The late Mr Percy Smith apparently had access to still another of Paora’s manuscript histories, for he gave abstracts from one (in his history of the "Peopling of the North") which is neither of the above.’ The history records the warfare of the Ngāti Whatua, Te Taou, Te Uri-o-hau, and Nga Ririki tribes. The Māori text is followed by notes and Tuhaere’s whakapapa.
