Historic Maketu: Hui Hui Mai! is a classic work of regional and tribal history, first published in 1940 and now reprinted in an attractive facsimile edition. Enid Tapsell recounts the history of Maketu township and its Te Arawa inhabitants, from discovery and settlement by the voyagers of the Arawa canoe (led by Tama-te-kapua) through to the establishment of the first Pakeha trading station there by Philip Tapsell. Featured are stories of the explorations of Ngato-i-Rangi and Ihenga, the burning of the Arawa canoe, the death and resurrection of Hatupatu, conflicts with Rangihouhiri and Ngaiterangi, the musket raids by Ngapuhi in the early nineteenth century, and many other incidents in the colourful history of this important coastal settlement. Illustrated with the original artworks by Harry Dansey, Jr, Historic Maketu is a book of timeless quality.
