Ngā Taonga Tuku Iho

Ngā Taonga Tuku Iho Photo: Auckland Libraries Heritage Collections - 755-Album-77-19-1 (WH Partington)

This image is thought to have been taken in 1894 at Putiki Pā, in front of Te Paku o te Rangi Wharepuni in Whanganui by photographer WH Partington.

The young girl standing (fifth from left) is Wiki (Wikitoria Hera) Mahuika and her brother, Henare (Pape) Mahuika is standing in the back row to the far right. Both were two of the younger children of Heni and Hoani Mahuika of Kawatiri. It may have been a school group as the gentleman standing (third from right, back row) isidentified as J.L.A.K (mahita). Wiki Mahuika married Taitoko Te Matai from Rangiotu ca 1895. Henare Mahuika married Hunia Te Naihi at Bruce Bay, Makawhio ca 1903-04.
