Rev. H. Paraone
THE Rev. Henare Paraone (Henry Brown) died at Kaitaia last August after some weeks of ill health. An Aupouri and Ngati Kahu leader and a Church of England minister, he had been stationed in the far north since 1931.
Mr Paraone was said to be one of the finest preachers in the Maori church, and was a most brilliant orator on the marae. The tangi was held at his home settlement of Waimanoni, and the funeral was at Awanui.
WEDDINGS AT OTIRIA
by Hoterene Keretene
DAVIS â€” HENARE
Mr Rome Hemi Davis was married to Miss Grace Te Aorewa Henare at Otiria by Rev. Henare Paraone, Uncle of the bride, and was assisted by Rev. W. N. Patiawa of Kaitaia before a large gathering of over 1,000.
Mr Davis is the second son of Mr and Mrs W. T. Davis of Kawa Kawa, and Miss Henare the eldest daughter of Lt. Col. and Mrs J. C. Henare of Motatau, Bay of Islands.
The Bay of Islands Tribal Executive with Mr S. W. Maioha had full control of the marae. It was a day full of incident and festivity. Only three cartons of beer were confiscated by the Wardens. But there is still a mystery â€œWhat happened to the three cartons?â€ They disappeared!
In the evening a dance was held where over 500 couples enjoyed themselves in varying â€œRock'n Rollâ€ gestures to the popular music of the Ngawati Brothers Orchestra, all of local talent.
Mr D. Wynyard, Maori Warden of Moerewa, was M.C. and indeed controlled the dancing with ability and co-operation.
REV. MOHI TUREI
A GIFTED MAORI
Mohi Turei had five children by his second wife, Kararaina, of whom only Teki, a dairy farmer at Cape Runaway, survives. Ngarangi died some years ago. For many years, before her marriage to Lieut. Henare Kohere, she was a schoolteacher. Paaka died recently. He worked most of his life in the Maori Land Court. Paraone, a clergyman, died not long after his ordination. Peta, who took part in the First World War, died some years ago. Ngarangi had three children. Huinga (Mrs George Nepia) followed in her mother's footsteps by becoming a teacher. Her husband looks after her dairy farm at Rangituka. Rina (Mrs Hawea Swan) lives in Gisborne. Hiki, who won his commission in the last war, is a carpenter at Gisborne. Mrs Swan has a large family. Mrs J. Parata, Te Kaha, Bay of Plenty, is a dental nurse, and her brother, Henare, is a teacher at Tokomaru Bay.
Mr Nau Paraone Kawiti Puriri
But economic circumstances attracted them to the cities to find a home and make their way in various occupations. From day to day they work to adapt themselves more and more to the city and pakeha way of life, yet even these people never completely lose contact with their traditional culture. The Orakei and Mangere groups, mostly born and bred in Auckland, are still held together by their tribal ties; and, helped by their leader, Mr Nau Paraone Kawiti Puriri, they meet regularly to train themselves in Maori dancing. They were invited to Waitangi and, about 50 strong, performed most creditably before the Queen. More difficult is the problem for the many city-dwellers whose tribal ties are severed, who have no clear-cut leadership, and have lost contact with the traditional culture. Of these people, 150 performed before the Queen under the modern tribal name of Ngati Akarana.
The Government Printing Works in Vienna were among the famous presses of the nineteenth century. In various processes, such as colour printing, their standard was almost unequalled. It was here that Wiremu Toetoe Tumohe and Te Hemara Rerehau Paraone learnt the trade. (After an engraving of about 1850.)
In our next issue we shall reproduce the diary of Te Hemara Rerehau Paraone, which makes up the rest of the manuscript.
