Voice of colonial soldier: At our first camping place, the guide lit several large fires, and I remember well that I had some suspicion of him.
I had only time for a hasty glance about me when I realised that we were trapped, but long enough to see that the place was full of Maoris.Ōpepe had been a Hauhau village, and the Hauhau made attacks on Napier and other European settlements in the mid-1860s.Te Kooti actually fought against the Hauhau, but was suspected of being a spy and was jailed on Chatham Island.I have no doubt that the fires were intended as signals to Te Kooti’s scouts on the ranges above.Narrator: The colonials decided to set themselves up a camp at the deserted Māori settlement of Ōpepe and build a stockade.
