Ruapekapeka Pā: Where dissatisfaction over the Treaty turned to war: Ruapekapeka is a statement on the Treaty of Waitangi and it’s acceptance by Maori. It was only five years from the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840 for disagreement on its interpretation to ignite into an armed uprising. The conflict between British colonial forces and northern Māori in 1845 and 1846 culminated in the battle of Ruapekapeka Pā.
The Pa site is a powerful symbol of the armed uprising with the visible earth works, the canons, the sweeping views and sense of the battles fought in the area. A place of enormous importance for Aotearoa NZ history.
